Rio de Janeiro
When Rio de Janeiro is thrust into the international spotlight during the 2016 Olympic Games, it’s likely that the entire world will fall in love with the jewel of Brazil. While it's been over 50 years since the famous song came out, Ipanema Beach is still the place to see and be seen. As the largest Art Deco statue in the world, Christ the Redeemer beckons visitors to Corcovado Mountain. Rio’s Carnaval parties are bacchanalian extravaganzas of feasting, music, dance, and costumed revelry.
