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.

... then see the city fully lit up at night. Great first day in Rio - I'm loving it here already! That night we headed out in Lapa - the streets were full of people with little pop up stands for bars and food stalls. There was music being played everywhere and all the proper bars along the street were completely open so you just walked from one to another. And the caipirinhas were flowing - the Brazilian cocktail, so nice but so much sugar though! Had a ...
... there was a Brazilian band playing American tunes... Jimi Hendrix, Bon Jovi, Stevie Wonder, Stevie Ray Vaughan, you name it. People in Brazil love rock music more than anything else it seems.

It´s almost as if Brazil is stuck in the past, musically speaking anyway, which is awesome. All of this music inspired me further, so I ...
