After going to a friend's wedding in Belo Horizonte, I could not leave Brazil before visiting the "Cidade Maravilhosa." Leblon Beach in Rio de Janeiro is a must.
Rio is so vibrant, and what a better place to experience the city's culture than the beach. Make sure to have one of the cold coconuts and a caipirinha that are sold all along the boardwalk.
This photo was taken from the rooftop pool of our hotel. Even though the rooms were not superb, the view was priceless.

Plataforma Samba Show - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
If you missed the carnival in Brazil, you can still enjoy the Samba show. Many hotel can help you to arrange a Samaba Show, such as the one plays at the Plataforma. Of course, most of people going to the show are tourist.
