The “wonderful city” – as Brazilians call Rio de Janeiro - provides music, entertainment, a great nightlife and paradise-like beaches. A few miles away there are also two great other travel options: Buzios and Angra dos Reis.
Buzios and Angra dos Reis are world-top beach resorts and are a two-hour drive away from Rio de Janeiro. Buzios is a kind of South American version of Saint Tropez and its beaches - Geribá, Ferruda, Ossos… - are excellent for swimming, diving, resting, windsurfing and sailing.
Angra dos Reis has amazing forests, waterfalls, lakes, small fishing villages, secret coves (Angra dos Reis means "King’s Cove"), 365 small islands and 2,000 small beaches – many resort hotels, villas and restaurants are present.
