Rio De Janeiro
Believe or not, but more famous than a carnival in Rio De Janeiro is only a New Years Eve in Rio De Janeiro. There is only one place you should go for the celebration- Copacabana beach, the most famous beach in Brazil. Experience the music, costumes, and colors of Rio during the most magical night of the year. Is there any better way how to celebrate NYE than celebrating it on the beach? We don’t think so. Be sure to find your most comfortable, white summer clothes to blend in for a traditional Brazilian New Year’s Eve party.
