Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Rio de Janeiro, the capital of Brazil and the second largest city in the country, is most famously known for its scantily-clad women, bolstering culture and cuisine, and the Latin atmosphere that defines the city. For a place where you can ensure plenty of fun and excitement, Rio is the place to go. Copacabana Beach, Sugarloaf Mountain, Guanabara Bay, and a visit to the Christ the Redeemer statues are all must-dos while you are in the city. In Rio you can spend a day relaxing at the beach, a day exploring the mountains in a cable car, and another day venturing the city which is home to a beautiful skyline. Though Rio has recently experienced a crime wave, don’t let this deter you from a great vacation.
