Estado do Rio de Janeiro Travel Guide: 4,605 reviews and 9,013 photos

Comparing to my small country, the Rio de Janeiro state is huge! The state only is about the size of Portugal!!...
Planning our 3 week trip to Brazil, our main purpose was definitely to visit Rio, specially since we had a good portuguese friend living there. So we decided we would visit some places other than Rio de Janeiro city, not leaving the state.

Since we didn't have budget to rent a car we traveled mainly by bus, so we couldn't go to that many places. We went to Ilha Grande and Paraty. Check out its pages for more info.
