With samba ringing in your ears, and the sparkling coastline behind you, you’re sure to fall in love with Rio de Janeiro, the heartbeat of Brazil.
Embrace this intoxicating metropolis that’s lined with white sandy beaches, rainforest and mountains, and home to some of the world’s greatest icons such as Copacabana Beach and Sugarloaf Mountain. Visit during Rio Carnival for the ultimate street party, before relaxing with a cocktail (or two) watching the sun set over this spectacular city.
See more of South America in one trip: after visiting Rio, head to Buenos Aires for a spot of Latin American charm, or visit sun-drenched Lima where the culinary scene is like no other. You could even visit Mexico City for a few days to contrast your party days with some culture and sightseeing.
