Beautiful shores and ocean breezes bring visitors to Cabo Frio, a municipality in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro state. Established in 1615, the city is known for its churches, shrimp pasta, and for serving as a route with cruise lines. What makes it famous, however, are the beautiful beaches.

There’s no bad time to visit the State of Rio de Janeiro, but there are certainly times that are better than others. If hitting the beach on the state's lengthy coastline is your top priority, summer (December ... Read more
- March) is your best bet. It gets hot, and not just figuratively, with temperatures regularly topping 95F (35C), though at higher elevations, you'll find a more comfortable range from the 50s (10-15) to the 80s (27-30), making this a great time for heading to Itatiaia National Park. Spring is when nature really steps up its game, and with the flowers in bloom and the weather in a more comfortable range at the coast, it’s a great time to check out the area’s parks and gardens. From April to September, Rio has comfortable weather and less rain, making this a perfect time to find better deals and fewer crowds, but the higher elevations can get very cold -- often freezing -- making this a less than ideal to visit if you have plans to do some hiking.

Lovely beaches with crystal wather and white sand. Really good to escape from the daily stress and relax.

Peguei uma virose que estragou a viagem. Descobri que ela acontece todos os anos em Cabo Frio e ninguém noticia para não espantar os turistas. Fui parar no hospital e os médicos disseram que 90% dos casos atendidos naquela semana eram com os mesmos sintomas. Além disso, o custo-benefício não é tão bom.
