Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rio de Janeiro: Petropolis (Cervejaria Bohemia, Catedral de Sao Pedro de Alcantara, & more), Scuba & Snorkeling (in Arraial do Cabo) and Museu de Arte Contemporanea de Niteroi (in Niteroi). There's much more to do: stroll through Copacabana Beach, admire the natural beauty at Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro, kick back and relax at Praia de Grumari, and appreciate the history behind Corcovado Christ the Redeemer.

To plan Rio de Janeiro vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
