After a grueling flight with multiple delays, Alan and I finally arrived at the Rio de Janerio airport where we boarded a local bus to take us to the tony district of Ipanema. In hindsight this was probably an error for us due to our severe fatigue. If we had been alert and attentive we might have enjoyed the rambling route we …
... our bags and walked out the doors. CHAOS. People everywhere and it was loud. We saw the booth where you can buy your taxi vouchers to the area in Rio you want to go to. We were told to do that as it wasn't safe to catch a cab right from outside. We slowly worked out which line we needed to be in and jumped into the car, I showed the driver where we needed to go and he nodded. As we were driving to the city it was scary and the traffic was insane, we were so close to the ...
... right it was like a maze of winding streets within. Everyone was so friendly, the people here weren't living in poverty however, it was very poor compared to some areas of Brazil.

Some of the kids played us a mini samba show out of home made instruments and the smaller children danced for us. That's ...
... 8211; right at the
top there was a station and one at the bottom to. We could only ever go in to a

top and another at the bottom, and a ...

The thinking is that as I am going to be here for a while I thought I might as well eat healthy, do some exercise and catch a good tan. After breakfast I decided to run all the way along Copacabana beach because it is a good way to see everything. It was far, hot but totally worth it. The view was incredible. To my left the skyscrapers and to my right the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel San Marco Rio de Janeiro
Hotel San Marcos is well located in Ipanema near Cococabana and 10 minutes from city centro. the facility is clean and orderly, the rooms adequate, the water pressure - to die for!! Breakfast is ordinary, but overall a nice place to stay. WiFi is only available in the lobby - what a shame.
