Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Rio de Janeiro is a must-see destination featuring breathtaking beaches, incredible landscapes and a vibrant culture.  Every year the city is taken over by the contagious rhythms of samba, extravagant costumes and non-stop partying for the celebration of Carnaval, dubbed the biggest party on Earth. But beyond Carnaval, Rio is an exciting city with much to offer. Go for a walk in Copacabana or Ipanema and soak in the gorgeous sun while enjoy a cold drink in one of the many kiosks along these famous beaches. Cariocas, as the locals are known, are passionate futebol (soccer) fans and matches are always exhilarating events. For a real carioca experience, head to Maracana Stadium to catch a match with one of the major teams. And donâ??t forget to visit Rioâ??s most iconic attractions: Pão de Açúcar (Sugar Loaf) and the Corcovado â?? where the 98ft (30m) statue of Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) stands tall with open arms welcoming everyone to the Cidade Maravilhosa (Wonderful City), as Rio is known in Brazil.
