From its famous beaches to its jaw-dropping landscapes, Rio de Janeiro is one of the hottest honeymoon spots on the planet.
Rio de Janeiro Honeymoon
Honeymooners after a holiday of fun in the sun will fall in love with Rio de Janeiro. Rio’s beaches are visions picturesque white sand perfection, and Rio’s evolved beach culture celebrates care-free enjoyment. While Rio lends itself to mid-market to luxury when considering flight, hotel, and other incidental costs, it can be done on a budget if you avoid the enormously popular New Year’s and Carnaval.
Rio offers something for everyone with a vibrant arts scene, shopping, dining, beach activities, and outdoor excursions. The National Museum, Botantical Gardens, and the neighborhood of Santa Teresa will allow you to indulge your senses with art, performance, and innovative dining. On the beach, you can work on your tan, play volleyball or soccer with other beachgoers, or go out surfing. The most tempting attractions are to visit for New Year’s Eve and Carnaval. These two holidays showcase Brazil’s vivacious and fun-loving culture, and offer a chance to party with and like locals. If visiting for these times, be sure to look into booking airfare, hotels, and tickets as soon as possible to find availability and pricing suitable to your budget. Once you’re there, be ready to dance and have fun!
Rio de Janeiro enjoys a consistently tropical climate where the average daytime temperature will vary between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Peak season is during the southern hemisphere summer (December through March), which includes New Year’s Eve and Carnival celebrations. Expect sky-high rates on hotels and airfare for Carnival, in particular.
