Plan your trip to The World Cup around your visit to the New York Times' #1 Place to Travel in 2013: Rio de Janeiro -- "With the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics (plus an oil boom) providing the impetus, the tropical city perhaps most famous for its Carnival hedonism is on its way to becoming a more sophisticated cultural hub..."
Saquarema (pronounced sah-kwa-RAY-ma) is known as Brazilâ€™s surf capital only 60 miles from Rio de Janeiro which straddles a spit of sand between a gorgeous lagoon and the open Atlantic. Saquarema is a laid-back little town 100km east of Rio where polluting industries are forbidden. The waters are clean and fish and shrimp are abundant. This town is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts with unmarred shoreline that attracts fishing enthusiasts and sun worshippers.
Situated halfway to BÃºzios, 50 minutes to Cabo Frio and 1 hour to Arraial do Cabo (diving spot), Saquarema is a go-to destination for cariocas (residents of Rio) looking for relaxation, excellent seafood, perfect waves, amazing beaches and one of the most beautiful sunsets on earth. It is a very safe town and the locals will make you feel so welcome that it will be hard to leave.
