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.
