No city in the world evokes carefree fun and adventure more than dynamic Rio de Janeiro, with its sun-splashed bay and exuberant spirit. The city is perhaps best known for its two-mile-long beaches: Copacabana, with its powdery sands and famous mosaic-tile promenade, and Ipanema, where you can watch the locals playing frescobol (a game similar to tennis) and going about their everyday lives. The former capital of Brazil and still its second-largest city, Rio is also a cultural wonderland, with world-class museums, art galleries, shops, and dining. Don’t miss this opportunity to spend two extra days here, discovering why the Rio’s nickname is Cidade Maravilhosa — “Marvelous City.”
