Waiting at the airport in Foz Iguacu for our flight to Rio De Janeiro we met a couple from the USA who were also on their way to Rio but on a different airline. They gave us a spare copy of a tourist information book on Rio. Our flight was delayed so we had plenty of time to study up. The book had a grid showing how much a taxi should cost from the …
We arrived to our hotel on Copacabana Beach the Friday afternoon before the Sunday marathon. We had decided to remain low key for the next day to rest for the race, only leaving Copacabana to pick up our race packets downtown.

Great location if you are into going to the beach but the hotel is in need of an upgrade in the rooms. Very friendly helpful staff, and the lobby was a comfortable place to sit and use the free wifi (Expensive if you want access in your room). Would have preferred free access in the room.
The buffet breakfast was good with a fair selection of food. Everything looked spotlessly clean. One staff member was testing the food checking the temp etc.
Brazil is expensive and for what you got at the hotel it was quite expensive but if you were there for the beach and it was beach weather then it would be a reasonably priced hotel.
