Finally made it to Rio 2 days late! Arrived in Buenos Aires Sat on time but we were then refused our next flight because the airline staff didn't believe that our visa for Brazil was valid. Couldn't talk them around so we had an enforced 2 day layover until the Brazil consulate opened on Monday.
A quick fix ensued …
... things or easing into it'. We arrived into Rio after an 8 hour overnight flight from Miami. Normally we would have been fine but we were so out of it, everything seemed more difficult. The mission for night one was to navigate our way to Carnival on public transport with no map in an event with 100,000 people, in the dark. If Carnival had been on Day 2, we would have enjoyed it a thousand times more. This is what we have learned about Carnival and Rio de Janeiro:

My favourites (Plural, surprise!), vitamina con granola and banana (Literally banana, granola and milk blended together) and acai (The superfood or in this case berry local to Brazil - acai berries blended together with ice and honey, topped with banana and granola). 8. Consuming 75% of the cocktails on the menu after an endless-meat-on-sticks-in-your-face deliciousness buffet meal. We left the falls in a sub average state via aircraft (This ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsMercure Apartments Rio De Janeiro Leblon
We chose to stay in Leblon as we wanted to get away from the major tourist centre in Copacabana. The apartments were very good, well maintained with a rooftop pool.
The surrounding area had some good food places (which were all relatively expensive, but that's Rio). One of the best was a bistro-type place just around the corner - good food and only about $30/head.
Views from the rooftop were excellent and access to the beach was about a 5 min walk straight down the road at the front of the hotel.
All in all, highly recommended.
