You sure need to take them to Rio. In Rio. Besides the traditional Sugar Loaf and Christ statue, I recommend some places;
Rio Scenarium It is a a 3 store place, located in the Lavradio street, Lapa Borrough, There is music alive, nice people inside, cool decoration, good appetizers. It is a must. Starts around 11 PM.
"Forte de Copacabana". It used to be a fortress. Now it has a Cafe and a nice view of copacabana Coast line. A really nice place for the sunset hour.
A nice area for walking, shopping, juices and icecreams stores is Leblon borrough.
You can also go to Barra Shopping, a huge mall in the Barra Borrogh. This area also has a disco club called Nuth
Where to Eat:
Cappriciosa - Pizzeria and pasta
Belmonte - Brazilian Finger food
Porcão - Barbecue.
Da Silva - Buffet
Rei do Bacalhão (The Encantando branch) Best Codfish of Rio. Very Good!
Best Beach: Recreio.
Gotta go to: Cinelandia (Downtown) - Has the second biggest library of Americas, a really nice Theater, historical buildings, easy to get by subway etc.
1 - Copacabana: specially at night. It is not much dangerous, but neither is a family place; full of prostitutes, pimps and other strange people trying to take money out of your pocket.
2 - You can go to Santa Teresa, a nice place. But avoid staying in the hotels there. There have been some reports of robbery there.
Besides Rio, I strongly suggest you to go to Florianopolis, It has more than 40 nice beaches, good sea food dishes and is relatively close to the Water Falls. Its smaller than Rio, so its calmer and the nature is more present. Dont miss it.
If you like modern architectrure, a one day trip to Brasilia would be very interesting.
I'v visited Brasil 2times now, first in 2008 and second in 2009.
My wife is from Brazil from Aracaju "Sergipe".
My question to you all.
In 2012 we will marry in Aracaju. My brothers and father and mother.
Will go with us to Brazil to see the marriage.
But just visiting Aracaju is not such a good Idea i think.
that's why I like to ask to you what city's are very interesting to see.

What i also like to know is, whats the best thing to travel inside brasil?
