Perhaps more than any other city in the world, Rio de Janeiro is a city synonymous with F.U.N. From the four-day hedonistic free for all of Carnaval to the joyous New Year celebrations at Copacabana Beach and the relentless samba sounds that fill your ears at every corner in the city, Rio de Janeiro turns its collective nose up at po-faced types. But fun in Rio de Janeiro isn't all about booty-shaking dances and endless caipirinha-fests. There is plenty of more innocent fun to be found here too - the city's zoo will bring out the child in even the most grown up of visitors, while the beaches offer endless opportunity for splashing around as well as the inevitable admiring of Brazilian beach bodies. All-work-and-no-play types need not apply, Rio is a city for those who like to have a good time.
