Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Where: Hot, hedonistic Rio—where lush mountains plunge into tropical seas, Latin beats throb, pulses race, and the views are unforgettable. Take a cable-car ride up to the granite dome of Sugar Loaf Mountain, over 1,000 feet above Rio, for a dazzling vista of the city and Guanabara Bay. Or, for the ultimate view, take a helicopter ride that swoops around Christ the Redeemer.

Why: This is one of the world's most exciting, thrilling and inspiring destinations—it'll be a vacation you'll never forget.

Where to stay: Chic cliff-hanger La Suite is located in Joatinga, the Beverly Hills of Rio, and has great beach views—book the Black Suite for the best ones.
