Rio de Janeiro is Famous for its Hot, Mysterious, Unforgettable New Year's Eve.

Call it Ano Novo in Portuguese or by the popular local name, Reveillon, New Year will be a novel experience. Celebrated on the First of January, like elsewhere, for the real Brazilian, it is an exhilarating mixture of tradition and culture, as much as the ritual eating of rice and lentils on the special day. If the world famous samba dance dazzles, so do frevo, pagode, axe and forro. Watch the astonishing display fireworks on the Copacabana beach, which extends to nearly 10 miles off the shore. Be a true Brazilian - taste the farofa, a delectable dish of spiced tapioca grains. And be sure to wear white, the local custom believed to bring luck.

The New Years Shows In Copacabana

Are the rumors true that Madonna, the famous pop star will sing on the New Year eve in Brazil? You must let go with the samba, not because of any customary loyalty to “Local” art. Samba, frevo and the other performances will redefine dance, even life, for you. Imagine a four-mile long stage, putting up dances, music, and revelry, throbbing with over 2,000,000 visitors; you will be near to an idea of what the celebrations on the Copacabana beach are. As the fireworks dazzle and go away, the vibrant music takes over. Black Eyed Peas or Caetano Veloso may be performing there – the celebrations last all night until the sun raises.


First Breakfast Of The Year

Brazilian tradition says eat lentil soup, lentils with rice for prosperity. It has been like no other night and no other New Year eve. Yes, that was the special Brazilian New Year. More than the lights and music and the electric dance, the vibrant energy of the land has caught hold – a memorable experience. Get ready for another great custom. Traditionally, the first breakfast of the New Year is almost solemn. It is a hearty (and healthy, considering the hectic night) meal of lentils or what ever you choose. Rest a little while and head for the Ipanema Beach. It is nice to swim and then nap on the sands.
