Hi Phill, firma NYE Copacabana is the mostrar beautiful fireworks show. It's so crowded so, stay close there. There are a lot of hotel and hostel in Copacabana and Ipanema (it's better and safer than Copacabana) and you can go walking. There you have to visit the trails to see the most beautiful views in Río, you can do it with people from there Who know the way and can help you (look in instagram for @rodrigopato.paraquedismo). Outside from Rio you can go to Ilha Grande, to arrive there you need to go to Conceição de Jacareí or Mangaratiba and from there Take a boat for the Island. Other good place, and the most preferred for brazilian people, is Buzios with beautiful people and good nightlife but it's expensive. I hope you enjoy it.

That's actually the second best time to go! High summer and party - best time Carnaval! 

Def go stay on one of the islands: Ilha Grande or Ilhabella Viagens e Turismo On your way go to Paraty (historical nice town) and from there take a boat to Praia do Sono, this is one of the last beaches without electricity! 

Or go the other direction toward Buzius. That's where most wealthier cariocas go, where there are plenty of realy nice hotels and mansions and good parties. 

Mostly though just soak up the brazilian life and feel safe and happy in Copacabana or Ipanema. Good food and great beach. 

If travelling, just go to a bus station and buy a ticket or order ahead because of the holiday business. The brazilians have great busses and travel better than we usually fly! 

Renting a car can be fun for stops, though roads can be packed at that time, especially with a lot of drunk drivers! 

I'm already jealous! 

Have fun

I think you really should stay at Ipanema or Leblon! Is very beautiful and calm and the best neighbors to go out at night and to do a lot of things by foot  

At Ipanema, near Praça General Osório you will be also near to metro! There are good hotels and also hostels.

Without leaving Rio, spend one day at Prainha (beach), Petrópolis(city) 

Going around, go to Ilha Grande, Buzios! Very beautiful but be careful with the traffic!! The roads are crowded during this period!!

Since you'll be there for NYE, Copacabana is where you need to be staying for the best night life options. They have a huuge fireworks show and its a ton of fun.
