5. New Year celebrations in Rio
The best way to be sure of some winter sun is to head down south, where summer is in full swing in December! From the Amazon to Iguacu Falls, Brazil’s attractions could easily occupy a whole month. If you’re planning to be overseas during the New Year, you should certainly ensure that you end up in Rio on New Year’s eve. The city hosts a street party like no other. The Copacabana beach becomes the centre of all celebrations. If you want to avoid crowds, take in the offshore fireworks from a beachfront hotel.
