Legendary beaches, including the iconic and much revered Ipanema Beach, are perfect for chilling out in the afternoon sun and of course, for people-watching - there’s always something to entertain here. Soak up the atmosphere, Caipirinha in hand from the terrace of the famous Copacabana Palace - the hotel of choice for rock stars and celebrities-past and present. If you are keen to join in the fun, try your hand at sensual Samba. With so much to see and do, Rio can easily occupy a few days and you may well find it difficult to drag yourself away.
