Rio de Janeiro
Home to a spectacular landscape that few cities can match, along with white-sand beaches, a bustling city center and a culture that pervades every aspect of life, Rio de Janeiro is beyond alluring for many. Whether you want to surf, hang-glide, party or sightsee in your free time, you will never run out of things to do. The cost of living is reasonable and the people warm, although the city certainly has a gritty side to it that requires some attention. But it's hard to resist the constant music and dancing, the beachside drinks, the wild festivals, the breathtaking nature and the heritage of Brazil's second largest city.
