The World Cup is over, but Rio de Janeiro is a destination worth visiting even when it’s not teaming with soccer players and fans. And with fares from Los Angeles this low, now’s the time to cross Rio off your bucket list! You can time you visit so you can join the Brazilians in celebration of their Independence Day, which falls on September 7.

Rio is home to two of the most well known beaches in the world — Ipanema and Copacabana! You can ride the glass-walled cable car to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain, gawk at the Christ the Redeemer statue atop the Corcovado Mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park that overlooks the city, or marvel at the Maracanã Stadium that hosted the World Cup final and closing ceremony, and is the venue for both the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2016 Olympics.
