Rio de Janeiro is a state in the Southeast of Brazil. It is a small coastal wedged between São Paulo to the west, Espírito Santo to the northeast, and Minas Gerais to the north. Rio de Janeiro is most famous for the sun, sand, and samba of its eponymous capital, but the state hosts a wide range of other environments, with quaint colonial villages, rugged mountain parks, lazy coastal towns, and hip beach resort destinations.
