Rio de Janeiro might be full of beautiful beaches, but this marvelous city is only one of the spectacular areas that lie within the country of Brazil.  As you are planning your trip to this amazing destination, you will find that there are some fabulous full day trips from Rio de Janeiro.

Here are some of the best day trips from Rio de Janeiro that we offer:

Ilha Grande

First This natural island has quite the unique history, and it will keep you intrigued as you wander through the main town and down many of the walking trails.  The best beautiful beach on this island is Lopes Mendes and if you have done your research, you will know that it is also one of the most desired beaches to visit in the entire world.

Petrópolis

An excellent Rio de Janeiro day trip includes a visit to Petrópolis, which is where the infamous Imperial Museum can be found.  While this area was once a popular summer residence for emperors and aristocrats, that hasn’t changed today. Thousands of people still wish to spend their vacations there during that time of the year.

While in this town, you will need also to stop at the Crystal Palace.  It was constructed in 1884 and the inside is now full of miniature replicas of the different landmarks throughout the town.

Serra dos Orgãos National Park

As you are taking this tour, you will find yourself inside the spectacular Serra dos Orgãos National Park.  There are numerous walking trails, but the most popular one will take you between Petrópolis and Teresópolis.

Búzios

One of our personal favorite day trips in Rio de Janeiro is to Búzios, as it has always been where the elite have spent the warmer weather at their summer residence.  There are numerous beaches within this area, which makes it one of the best destination in Rio.

While the beaches are the main draw during this Rio de Janeiro day trip, we want to make sure that you know that you need to spend time on the famous Rua das Pedras as well.  

Arraial do Cabo

Finally The charming town of Arraial de Cabo is an excellent option for a Rio de Janeiro day trip due to the breathtaking views of the landscape.  One of the most beautiful beaches is Forno, but you may also find yourself wandering around a few others as well.

On your guided tour, some of the exotic wildlife and plants will be pointed out to you. 

These are our favorite Rio de Janeiro day trips and they will allow you to experience the best that this area has to offer during your time there.
