what to do?

by dan221184

Hi, I am in rio on my own for a week from 22nd July and although I have booked accomodation, have no idea what to do to fill my time. Obviously I'd like to see christ the redeeemer, and prob a couple of days beach time, but does anyone have any other recs to fill my time??

Further to this, would you recommend getting taxis around - are they relatively cheap?

Any tips would be most helpful!!

Well, since you have not given any clue of your interests (nor of which neighborhood you are staying in), it is a bit hard to advise you of things you might like or neighborhood features. Take a look at the site www.ipanema.com which has info on neighborhoods, sights, parks, museums, clubs, beaches, malls, etc.
Yes, taxis are relatively cheap and easier than trying to figure out the buses wihout help. Of course, your accomodation staff can tell you how to get to a given place by bus. The metro is a good alternative, but goes to a limited number of places tourists might be interested in.

Taxi is a good option to go through the touristics sigths,agree about the price in advance for a whole day tour and be sure to take one recommended by the consierge of your hotel.There are several tour companies also.

i would recommend that you pay a visit to the old part of rio too.
santa teresa and lapa are really nice neighbourhoods with pretty buildings and a good vibe.

In Rio and longing to see Christ the Redeemer? I have good news for you! After 100 days out of service, due to landslides, the Corcovado railway is functioning again. Fare is currently US$20.50 for a round trip to the statue.

I´d recommend a day trip to Petropolis, the imperial city. You can visit te imperial palace of Pedro II, the Cathedral, Santos Dumont´s house etc. It´s a very beautiful city, completely different from Rio.
The trip takes around 1 hour by car. If you take a bus, maybe 1h30min.

Buzios is a great option to enjoy the beach. Unfortunatelly, the weather won´t help you because it´s winter here.

Parati is another interesting place to visit. It´s a colonial city with wonderful beaches nearby, such as Trindade.

If you decide to stay in Rio, there are also many things to be seen: the Christ, the Sugar Loaf, Santa Tereza, Lapa, Palácio do Catete (it was recently refurbished and I´ve heard that the museum inside is very good)etc.

Enjoy Rio!!!

Travel Tips for Rio de Janeiro

No Problem

by Hagao

With all the publicity about how violent Rio and its beaches are, i say OVERRATED..
Go and see for yourself. Yes, beware, but enjoy and don;t let fear get in the way.

Just do it!! Cool Breezes, sunsets, chilled Beer and amazing ladies.

Bring your binoculars!

It was a very cool thing to be able to point out our Ipanema seaside hotel from atop the Corcovado. There it is, Praia Ipanema, the first tall complex just to the left of that Gardens of Allah canal. A really nice place to call home here!

This is one of the friends I met in the Botanic Garden, I took some nice pictures of him until a 7 years old boy reaching us screaming like crazy, sacring not only the poor monkey but the photographer as well :)

More pictures of the monkeys you will find in Rio in the next tips!;)

Kiss twice ANYTIME you greet or say good-bye

by ScubaBrz

This is for people that you are introduced to, friends of your Brazilian host, for example. In Rio, almost everyone kisses twice (facing them, you would kiss to your left, then, switch)Brazilians know that Americans don't kiss when they greet each other, so, if you don't feel comfortable, it is equally polite to shake hands.
Note: down south of Rio, in the interior of Sao Paulo, for example, they kiss three times. Try not to bang your nose!
It only takes a few times to get the hang of it.

Feijoada & Caipirinha

by acemj

Feijoada is the national dish of Brazil and it's traditionally served on Saturdays. It's basically a big bean stew served in a clay pot and cooked with meat and accompanied by rice and a slice of orange or a garnish of kale. You'll also get some farofa to sprinkle on the stew, which is toasted manioc (cassava) meal.

The national drink of Brazil is the caipirinha, which is made with cachaca (a liquor made from sugarcane) that is served over crushed limes, sugar and ice.
