Travel Blogs from Rio de Janeiro
Our flight from Curitiba with Azul was on time and we arrived in Rio on a beautiful 26 degree day.
We had three days of our World Cup tour left before heading off on our own.
The day after we arrived we had a second trip to Christ the Redeemer, there was nearly four times as many people as on our previous trip, felt sorry for people on …
Today, we arose early and took a long walk along Copacabana Beach. By the time we returned to the hotel we were soaking wet with perspiration. By 8am it was already 32 degrees.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBenidorm Palace Hotel Rio de Janeiro
Paid a very high price during the World Cup for our stay at this Hotel.
While it is in a reasonable position three blocks back from Copacabana Beach the Hotel is aged. While the staff were very helpful the beds,bedding and towels all needed replacing. Breakfast was just adequate.
