A travel blog entry by tholdsworth89

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 …

Rio Part 2 - Copacabana!

A travel blog entry by emsads


We left Lapa to move out to Copacabana beach on Monday - as soon as we moved away from  the city centre it started to feel safer, cleaner and more upmarket than the streets of Lapa. The one downside of staying in Lapa was the safety aspect, we met a few people who had been mugged and it just wasnt a nice feeling to be out on the streets in the …

My first day in Rio

A travel blog entry by tracey_hunter

There were people in the immigration queue who made sure you had filled in your entry forms correctly. The man who stamped my passport was very cute. He asked if I had been to Brazil before. I …

A travel blog entry by aliandhannah


... with the help of MarLou purchased our Brazilian phone - proper locals now! Chilled in town and then cooked dinner - roast chicken and potatoes - which was as absolute dream. Thanks for putting us up MarLou - it was wonderful having some home comforts and chilling in your apartment. But before we knew it it was time for Rio - we caught the bus there and on arrival checked in to cortico da lapa - our home for the week. Looking up cortico on Ali's fancy Portuguese app ...

    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.
