Eva Longoria is taking a much-needed vacation! The busy actress hit the beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Sunday, March 10 to enjoy a little fun in the sun.

Longoria, 37, got comfortable on a reclining chair to do some tanning in a little orange and white string bikini that showed off her curves.

"Hello Rio de Janeiro! Guess which famous beach I'm on right now!" she tweeted Saturday with a photo of the beautiful scenery.

The beach babe also enjoyed a little sightseeing during her vacation, writing March 10, "Visited the Cristo Rendentor in Rio today! So beautiful, a sight to remember!" (Kim Kardashian posed in a similar shot while on vacation Feb. 9.)

How does Longoria stay in such great shape? In February, Longoria, a spokesperson for Lay's Potato Chips "Do Us a Flavor" competition, told Yahoo's omg!, "I actually do have a good diet aside from the chips. I do diet and exercise. Some people think you can do one or the other, but it really goes hand in hand."

The Desperate Housewives actress, who celebrated the opening of her second restaurant, SHe, in Las Vegas in early February, is now gearing up for the March 26 premiere her reality show, Ready for Love. Longoria is the producer of the NBC dating series and Giuliana and Bill Rancic will act as hosts. The ex-wife of Tony Parker told E! News, "It's the most authentic love story ever to unfold on television."
