It may be Brazil's second largest city, but Rio De Janeiro would have to be the country's most famous destination. Home to beaches made iconic in songs, like Copacabana and Ipanema. The site of the iconic Christ The Redeemer and the city of the famous carnival. Rio has plenty of icons to its name.

At the heart of Rio's reputation is its beloved beach culture. Experience it first hand by taking a stroll or dip at one of the famous beaches including Ipanema, Copacabana, Leme or Arpoador. If the city's itty bitty swim wear is too much for you, you can bare all at Abrico, Rio's only nudist beach.

Another must-see site in Rio is the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue, best reached by taking the funicular train to the top of Corcovado, a 710 metre granite peak and the resting place of the statue. The top of the peak also has a viewing platform that offers incredible views of not only the statue but also Sugarloaf Mountain, as well as downtown Rio and the city's beaches.

In addition to its natural beauty, Brazil is beloved for its lively and passionate locals, and nothing brings out the local passion quite like a soccer game. Sports fans won't want to miss seeing a local soccer game at Maracana, the largest football stadium in South America. If you can't get tickets for a game, it is still worth visiting the stadium for the Soccer Museum.
