Rio de Janeiro is the pumping heart of Brazil. From dusk till dawn this thriving city has a multitude of fantastic sights, sounds and experiences to be had be they hidden jems like the rickety tram up to Santa Theresa or standing proud like Christ the Redeemer that heralds visitors in to this unique city.

The June bonfire festivals occur on three separate evenings in June: 6/13, 6/24, and 6/29 in remembrance of St Anthony, St John, and St Peter, respectively. During this time in Rio, the streets and public squares are decorated with streamers and lanterns, intended to resemble a village market place. Bonfires are lit, and attendants participate in dancing, eating, and drinking events. In the spirit of tradition, mock weddings are held, and couples are supposed to leap the flames of the bonfires.
