Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rio de Janeiro: Imperial Museum (in Petropolis) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Arraial do Cabo). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Praia de Ipanema, stroll through Copacabana Beach, admire the natural beauty at Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro, and pause for some photo ops at Corcovado Christ the Redeemer.

For other places to visit, ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Rio de Janeiro vacation website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Rio Galeão – Tom Jobim International Airport. In November, daily temperatures in Rio de Janeiro can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 71°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
