The deal
The people of Rio de Janeiro, or, Cariocas, are famous for their hospitality, warmth, and energy. However, experiencing the beaches, babes, and boutiques of the city is typically a bank-buster — not to mention a brain-buster with the language barrier. That’s what makes this 5-night Rio package from Just Brazil Vacations by Hotur so exciting. With this amazing deal, you'll save at least $1,550!

Starting at just $959 per person, this scintillating offer includes flights, hotel, tours, and more. The 6-day, 5-night program includes accommodations in a guestroom at the four-star Porto Bay Rio International beach resort, and daily Brazilian breakfast. Also included are the following extras:

•    Half-day tour of Sugar Loaf Mountains (a $60 value).
•    Tour of H. Stern, world famous for its fabulous gems and jewelry.
•    Services of local guides and translators.

Considering the cheapest flight to Rio usually costs at least $700 and accommodations at the luxurious beachfront hotel can be as much as $350 per night, you’ll save enough money with this package to come back next year! A steal such as this is not guaranteed to last long.

For an additional $280, travelers may upgrade to Program 2, which features more tours and a Samba dinner show.

This package is based on round-trip flights from Miami, but additional departure cities are available at slightly higher rates. The offer is valid through December 9, and from January 14 to June 26, 2010. Prices are subject to change during peak travel times, such as holidays and Carnival (February 12-17).

The dollars
Rates are based on double occupancy. Taxes and fees are additional.

The catch
If you’re not one for crowds, definitely avoid Carnival season
