Rio, you photogenic city, you. It's really no surprise songs have been written about this city (yes, you'll probably hear "Girl from Ipanema" frequently). People will tell you to be careful in Rio, but it often makes you feel so relaxed (depending on the neighborhood) that you sometimes forget the warnings. This is how much people like Rio: I met a wedding party from Germany here, and although this was the wedding destination, neither the bride nor groom...nor anybody else from the party was from Brazil.

Rio is an amazing city. One with an eclectic variety of activities to engage in as well as some of the greatest outdoor views you'll ever see. The main reason I don't give it five stars is the large divide between the rich and the poor. Hard to enjoy Ipanema Beach while you sit in the shadows of the favelas. I hope the city and country find a way to get it together.
