Cities in Brazil you like better than RIO DE JANEIRO...and why?

Rio is a pretty amazing city, with some problems as well though. But still a gorgeously beautiful city.

That being said, what are some other cities in Brazil, that you personally prefer to RIO, and why?

I love many but I'm a cell so I'll.focus on a underrated overlooked city. POA is amazing. Very developed, European, cosmopolitan, etc.

I love Rio. But there are some other great cities: Sao Paolo, Recife, Salvador, and Fortaleza!

When I was down in Brazil, I mostly spent my time in Rio and Sao Paulo. I had a stronger preference for Sao Paulo at that time. But I was more of a night owl, hit the bars and clubs kind of guy at the time, more than a wake up and hit the beaches kind of guy.

Now that I've shifted gears, I wonder if my take on those two cities would be completely different.

How is Rio outside the beautiful area a long Copacabana? I think overall Sao Paulo might be a more livable, manageably paced city.

Copacabana is certainly a famous and fun beach, but it's not the main attraction. Lots of other beaches, mountains in the city limits, colonial areas, gorgeous jungle- looking parts and other areas. It really is a beautiful city aesthetically.

Ipanema is much nicer than Cocacabana. Cocacabana is infamous for prostitution.

Well, most foreigners didn't discover Fortaleza yet... But the Brazilians did!

In the domestic tourism sector in Brazil (Brazilians who travel inside the country), Fortaleza is the fourth most visited destination, after Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Brasília. But São Paulo and Brasília are destinations more related to business traveling, and events traveling. Excluding business and events, and focusing on leisure tourism, Fortaleza is the second destination, only after Rio de Janeiro.

Those are the data for domestic tourism, excluding foreign visitors.


Fortaleza is an extremely popular destination for Brazilians on vacation, from all parts of Brasil. During the high season, Fortaleza is packed with people from São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Manaus, Curitiba, Porto Alegre, Goiania and many other places.

People come for the beaches in the areas both east and west of the city, and also for the intense nightlife and the cool and humorous native people!

In my travels, I found that the big cities with the friendliest people/Brazilians (by far) were Belo Horizonte and Goiania.
