BRAZIL SPECIAL EVENT

NEW YEAR IN RIO

6 DAYS / 5 NIGHTS

A massive crowd gathers in the world's largest open-air ballroom for a party with a difference, filled with light and fireworks, peace and human warmth, at which the guest of honor is the new year.
Copacabana beach is the focal point of one of the biggest parties on earth, although festivities take place, on a smaller but increasing scale, on the beaches of Flamengo, Ipanema, Leblon and Barra da Tijuca.
The beach is key to the proceedings, which require that tributes be paid to Yemanjá, the African Goddess of the waters, revered since the time of the slave trade. The beachfront hotels and main restaurants organize the fireworks spectacle, as their annual gift to the city. Stages are erected the length of the beach at which live shows take place .
It is, undoubtedly, the greatest open-air party in the world. All are welcomed and the only requirement is one dresses up in white and is prepared to mingle with the local crowd.
