New Year's Eve is Rio de Janeiro's second most popular holiday. Like Carnival, New Year's Eve (or Réveillon) requires advance planning and August is a great time to get started, as that is when several hotels release their New Year's packages.

Copacabana leads the festivities in Rio with fabulous fireworks displays and shows. Over 2 million people crowd the beach for the celebration, which this year will be themed after the animated movie Rio 2. Read about New Year's Eve 2014 in Copacabana.
