New Years Eve in Rio

New Year’s Eve in Rio de Janeiro is legendary.  Over three million people pack Copacabana beach to celebrate the new year with a mix of music and tradition.  All wearing white, the party starts early and is capped with a spectacular fireworks display at midnight.

Fireworks at midnight

We were fortunate enough to have booked a week with Marta at her guesthouse, which overlooks Copacabana.  It was a perfect base from which to watch the festivities, while enjoying our own private party complete with a DJ and traditional Brazilian cuisine.  It was a night to remember!
