With the reverberations of the World Cup 2014 only just behind us and the 2016 Olympic Games still looming, Rio de Janeiro has been hogging the holiday limelight. But while the rest of the world lands in Rio, where do the young and beautiful Rio residents go when they need to escape from it all?

With its azure waters and endless sun, it doesn’t have to work hard to court attention and can even name a VIP – Brigitte Bardot – among its fanbase. Couple that with an exciting dining scene and you’ll get a sense of why Búzios is a favourite destination for cariocas. So whether you’re looking to tack on a beach getaway to the end of your Olympics trip or you’re a Rio dweller planning a holiday to recoup and recover after the event, scroll down to read our full article and to discover more about this Brazilian resort.
