Five Festive Day Trips from Rio

No reviews, be the first!

While the wet and wild city of Rio has plenty to entertain you, it also makes a most festive base for exploring Southern Brazil. So, never mind the night’s excess; instead grab a pack of Engove (the “patented Brazilian hangover cure”) and explore. When, after all, will you be back in the beautiful corner of the world?

1) Beaches of Buzios

Just two hours northeast of Rio is the spectacularly scalloped peninsula of Buzios, home to more than 20 beaches surrounding a historic village with charm to spare. A favorite escape for Rio’s elite families, there are plenty of public buses from the big city, or book a tour to get the most out of your trip.
