You will check into your room at a 5 star hotel in Rio De Janeiro! From there you will have the day to explore the hotel, enjoy the views,  walk down to the beach, check out the city or relax by the pool! Later in the evening, we will all come together for a meet and greet over drinks, light dinner, and games officially welcoming you to the Curated Brazilian Experience!

From there we will take a tour all around Rio.

SATURDAY

Top of the top! Take part in another delicious breakfast at the hotel before meeting in the lobby for the day's adventure. We will be spending the day visiting Angra, located in the heart of an island paradise south of Rio. Sail on the turquoise waves through the islands while making stops to enjoy swimming on the beautiful and crystal clear waters. You’ll have an opportunity to explore the beaches, white sand, green colors of the Atlantic rain forest, swim, relax, and take beautiful pictures. You’ll also enjoy a delicious lunch during the tour.

After the tour has ended, we'll return back to the hotel for an evening wind down. Relax and get energized for the next day's events.

Later on in the evening will all catch back up to opt in for the ultimate experience of Rio’s vibrant culture – a performance that combines Brazilian samba with folklore – in advance. This will be an amazing experience, especially for first-time Brazilian visitors as it is a high-octane show that promises to deliver all of the colorful chaos of Carnival in Rio de Janeiro.
