Rio de Janeiro

Marvelous City

Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
On the 28th (Thu), take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Sebastian and then enjoy the sand and surf at Copacabana Beach. Here are some ideas for day two: explore the galleries of Centro Cultural Municipal Parque das Ruinas, pause for some photo ops at Corcovado - Christ the Redeemer, kick back and relax at Praia de Ipanema, then kick back and relax at Pedra do Arpoador, and finally contemplate the long history of Parque Lage.

Emerald of the Atlantic

With 21 lush islands scattered among pristine waters in the Atlantic Ocean, a Fernando de Noronha holiday is well worth the effort it takes to get there.

There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Capela de Sao Pedro, kick back and relax at Baia dos Golfinhos, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia do Leão.
