Santa Teresa 4.0 stars
After having lived in the mock-Miami neighbourhood of Barra for well over a month, it was a joy to find ourselves surrounded by ageing hippies, arty types, bohemians and general assorted oddballs - it was clear we were going to feel quite at home ... [more ]
Sugarloaf Mountain 5.0 stars
Pau d'Acucar - or Sugar Loaf Mountain - is a very popular tourist attraction with gringos and locals alike; at every sunset there is a tongue twister competition between the abundant couples, so don't forget to bring a date! The easy way up is to ... [more ]
Ipanema Beach - Rio de Janeiro 4.0 stars
In my opinion, Ipanema beach is one of the best places in Rio. The beach is really beautiful, with blue sea, white and soft sands and coconut palms. In its east side, the Arpoador rock has a panoramic view of the whole beach as well as ... [more ]
Arpoador 5.0 stars
In a visit to Rio de Janeiro, I would recommend a stop in Arpoador, a small neighbourhood in the Southern region of the city. The place is famous due to the rock which outcrops from the sea, separating Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. From there, ... [more ]
Theatro Municipal 4.0 stars
The Theatro Municipal has to be one of Rio's most dramatic buildings, and you'll always spot a few tourists outside snapping away on their camera. Not many people venture inside, however, which is a shame because, as I discovered, there's plenty ... [more ]
Palacio do Catete 3.0 stars
Ordinarily you can walk from Centro to Catete and this impressive palace, but as it was pouring down I wimped out and took the metro. It was worth making the effort to come here - the granite and marble building is beautiful and also houses the ... [more ]
Copacabana Beach - Rio de Janeiro 4.0 stars
Copacabana made Rio famous but Ipanema and Leblon have definitely surpassed it. There are 12 lifeguard 'posts' dividing the beaches and different groups hang out at different posts - Post 9 is the place for the young and hip, where whistling ... [more ]
Iguazu Falls 5.0 stars
Iguazu Falls is one of the most impressive natural attractions of South America. The waterfalls consist in a spectacle where around 275 cascades fall in the Iguazu River, dividing it in Upper and Lower River. As Iguazu Falls is located in the ... [more ]
Copacabana 3.0 stars
First-time visitors to Rio often find themselves unsure whether to choose accomodation in Copacabana or nearby Ipanema. If you have the budget, Ipanema is far and away the nicer option, with its lovely beach, tree-lined streets and relative ... [more ]
Jardim Botanico 4.0 stars
Among the treasures of Rio de Janeiro is, undoubtedly, the Jardim Botanico (Botanic Garden). Absolutely fantastic! It is possible to find more than 8 thousands of species in an area of 1.370.000m2. The vast vegetation remains the humidity of the ... [more ]
Beach Park 4.0 stars
Besides the Water Park, the Beach Park complex also has two great options of accommodations: the Beach Park Suites Resort, better for tourists, and Beach Park Acqua Resort, a mix of hotel and business flats. Both of them have great infrastructure ... [more ]
Parque das Ruinas 4.0 stars
Most people come to Parque das Ruinas just to take in the views from the top of the ruined mansion house, but it's worth taking the stairs in the opposite direction too, as interesting art displays are frequently held in the basement. When I last ... [more ]
Praca Liberdade 4.0 stars
Liberdade, the most oriental neighbourhood of Sao Paulo, has been attracting more and more tourists and local population to the region. The well cared tiny streets with exotic stores and great traditional restaurants are the principal reasons to ... [more ]
Santa Teresa - Lago das Neves 4.0 stars
Tucked away from the main tourist drag of Santa Teresa, Largo das Neves is becoming an increasingly popular spot for locals on weekend nights. The pretty square gets busy around 8pnm on Saturdays, when street vendors selling hotdogs, burgers and ... [more ]
Igreja da Nossa Senhora da Candelaria 4.0 stars
This church is beautiful, but has a terrible history that makes viewing the place somewhat painful. It was outside here that a group of adolescents were murdered by police in the notorious child massacres of 1993. It's a picturesque whitewashed ... [more ]
Prainha 5.0 stars
Prainha (or Little Beach) is located on the west of Barra da Tijuca, around 28 km from the Rio de Janeiro’s city centre. This small beach, between two mountains, is considered a paradise for the surfers. Indeed, the strong and perfect waves for ... [more ]
Pantanal 4.0 stars
Another beautiful place in Brazil is Pantanal. The region has an area with around 150.000km2 of extension, abundant vegetation, rivers and amazing fauna and flora. Pantanal is considered World Natural Patrimony by UNESCO and has different kind of ... [more ]
Museu do Ipiranga 4.0 stars
In the city of São Paulo the Ipiranga Museum celebrates the independence of Brazil from Portugal. It is a monumental museum with very inviting architecture – inside some of the huge paintings are quite amazing. I remember also seeing charming ... [more ]
Estádio do Maracanã 4.0 stars
One of the most important attractions of Rio de Janeiro and also Brazil is Maracana, the bigger football stadium of the world. It was built in 1950 to host the World Cup and nowadays the stadium is scenario of Brazilian championships as well as ... [more ]
Memorial da América Latina 4.0 stars
Modernist designer Oscar Niemeyer is unarguably Brazil's most famous architectural son, and his distinctive style is written all over this group of buildings, designed to showcase the history of Latin America. In one room you'll find a 1949 ... [more ]
