Rio de Janeiro — Rio de Janeiro is guaranteed to overwhelm your senses. The cidade maravillosa (marvelous city) is home to 37 sexy beaches that glitter against the landscape's series of verdant hills. Beyond the shore, the Christ statue-topped Corcovado and the Sugarloaf promontory leave lasting impressions on those who ascend their heights. Throw in striking architecture, a fun-loving beach culture, a vibrant nightlife (samba, anyone?), and you understand how this city of 6.1 million people has become a life-long favorite for anyone who has visited.

Why Go

For the laidback Carioca lifestyle, buff beach bods, and samba until dawn with some of the world’s prettiest people.
