Full of life= Bursting with life?

Hello amigos!

Rio de Janeiro's nights are full of life or bursting with life.

Which one suits better for a touristic advertisement? Is there by any chance a subtle difference between them?

Thanks in advance,

Sam :)

    They have both been worn dull through overuse, especially in touristic advertisement, so maybe they are equally appropriate.

    As to a subtle difference between them, then yes, I think so - one of intensity. The same as the difference that exists between a bottle full of soda before and after being shaken.
