Think about how beautiful it is to be there, lying in the sun between November and February, fleeing the winter on one of our cruises, to enjoy the warmth and color of a  Brazilian summer.

Copacabana beach is also famous for its New Year’s Eve, one of the most popular open-air parties on the planet, with millions of people coming from all over the world every end of the year. It also hosted some events of the time: the 2006 Rolling Stones mega-concert, in which the beach was filled with 1,300,000 spectators.
