    Rooms are clean and mine had a balcony with a hammock which was great. The bathroom is basic but had all I needed. Nice hot showers. Free caipirinha on arrival. My first night a group of residents had lots of drinks in the hostel bar then "G" who works there took us to a samba club in Leblon. Looking forward to more fun nights during my stay here.

    From the Sublime to the Ridiculous

    A travel blog entry by tholdsworth89 on Jul 15, 2014

    For our final full day in Rio we had arranged to take advantage of the glorious weather by going on a favela tour that promised the best view of the city. This meant an early start, with an 8 o'clock meeting at a hotel on the other side of town. The Botafogo trio arrived first to find that the Sheraton Hotel is as upmarket as it gets and were even …

    ... on the plane, I made sure I was awake for our arrival into the famed city of Rio de Janeiro. I have been to Rio twice before: Once when I was 16 to play soccer with a select group of high school players from Montgomery County (a memorable experience as we played, and got spanked by the likes of Flamengo and Fluminense youth clubs); and once with my cousin Keith when we were in our early 30’s. So it had been at least 12 years since I was last in ...

    ... the driver finally reaches the street he's been looking for, he takes one look at it and decides this is no place for a lady and returns me safely back to the policewomen at the bus terminal! They write me a note in Portuguese to show at the ticket office, add their phone number and I'm on my way up the six ramps again and onto the bus back to the airport! I'm tired and hungry but can still appreciate the adventure I've just had :-) The 'meet and greeter' is surprised to ...

    24 hour bus to Foz de Iguacu

    A travel blog entry by lpringle on Apr 27, 2014

    Today we had a 24 hour bus to Foz de Iguacu... It was a very long day. Safe to say we weren't impressed when a horse festival in a small town delayed our bus for an hour whilst we waited for a few hundred horses to cross the road... 27 hours later we ...

    ... It is a vibrant place where just as the energy is a absorbed by all, it is also oozed by all. With a buzz of samba music in the background, animated faces chattering away and hips beginning to swing there is an inescapable atmosphere here which takes over, and draws you in. Rio is like no other city I've visited, the dense jungle looms behind, the variety of people (both local and visiting) and it's relentless energy is enough to make you want to ...
