    looking for information on things to do in rio. I am currently living in Caxambu Mg, but have friends who will be coming from Canada just before the new year. I thought it would be nice to be able to do something with them in Rio and then we could watch the fireworks. Accomadation is not an issue as I have access to an apartment there.Looking for info and comments or critiques. Thanks in advance

    IMHO, the best thing to do in Rio for New Years is what the cariocas do:
    Go to beach during the day, have a late lunch, sleep all afternoon, get dressed in white with comfortable shoes (ie havaianas), start making caipirinhas, late dinner – usually at home (any restaurant will be mega expensive and you need to make reservations soon), then walk towards Copacabana along the beach (no matter where you are – just give yourselves some time to do it) with bottle of bubbly in hand to toast and see the millions of people dressed in white and the fireworks and the offerings to Iemanjì°. Concert at Copacabana is optional.
    Awesome New Years.

    I thought most cariocas left for Buzios, Angra, Rio das Ostras etc.
