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.

Rio hosts a very extravagant New Years Eve celebration, complete with street parties and an elaborate fireworks display. There are also many that gather on the beaches to celebrate the holiday that occurs simultaneously on this day, "Festa de Iemanja". Celebrators of this holiday bring offerings of flowers, gifts, perfume, and rice to Iemanjá, the Goddess of the Water and the mother of all the gods in the Umbanda religion of Brazil. Many of these gifts are sent away on little boats or thrown directly into the sea.
