RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - One of the favorite summer destinations among Rio's residents is Região dos Lagos (the Lakes' Region), situated in the North Coast of Rio's State. Famous for the cities of Búzios and Arraial do Cabo, Costa do Sol (the Sun's Coast, Lakes' Region alternative name) can also be surprisingly beautiful at Araruama, a stunning corner situated only 1:40 hours away from Rio.
