Nightlife and entertainment: Fun is guaranteed in the more touristy areas, but not just there... move away from Copacabana in the evening to find the real fun in Rio!! But beware of getting too familiar with the locals, especially the women!!! But, if you're reasonable and don't give the eye too much you won't have any problems!

Nightlife and entertainment: Visit the Lapa district, there are pubs, discos, bars, concerts and a lot of traditional restaurants. Also visit the "Bohemian" district of Carioca, it's very distinctive. It's the meeting point of the middle class of Carioca, it isn't just for tourists. It's absolutely not to be missed. I recommend going and returning to the hotel by taxi.

Best Period to Go: The best time to go to Rio de Janeiro is when the carnival starts, there are loads of people around, and then there's the show at the Sambadrome (which I highly recommend), it's fantastic! Also, it's the middle of summer, with temperatures from about 30 to 40 degrees, the best thing to do is to stay on the beach and every now and then cool off with a swim.

General opinion: We had such a wonderful time here. The place is so beautiful and the people are so friendly. There is so much to do for anyone willing to explore the area. I must say I was surprised to see that everything is so expensive. The food was great and the waiters were fantastic but the meals were at least twice what we would have spent in the States. Nevertheless it is a place that is worth seeing, including the beautiful people all over the beach.

Eating and Drinking: The local dishes are based on beans, churrasco and fish cooked in various ways. I always ate well for very little money and the service was great. In the evening, especially along Copacabana, there's a wide selection of traditional restaurants. You can have a very nice dinner at pan de sucar with views of Rio all lit up. It's fantastic to eat all the varieties of roasted meats. Unforgettable.

Best Period to Go: Being in Rio in December is the best ... swimming in the sea when in Italy there are sub-zero temperatures is priceless ... Then, apart from the cost of the flight, you spend less than when you holiday in Italy. One of the features of this country is that the people emit great joy even though it's not a rich country.

Useful tips: As an alternative to hotels, which are too expensive in Rio de Janeiro, I suggest renting an apartment with the Rio Luxury Apartments agency. I rented a fantastic penthouse in Copacabana with 3 double bedrooms. We were pleased with both the price and the location of the apartment, as well as the services provided.

Not to miss:  Thousands of visitors flock to Rio de Janeiro every year to experience its famed culture and nightlife. Rio also has many fine beaches including the famous Ipanema and Copacabana.
Nature enthusiasts should definitely make a trip to the Tijuca Forest. Visitors should also take a trip to the Sugarloaf Mountain by cable car to obtain a breathtaking view of the city.
One of the most famous landmarks in Rio is the gigantic statue of Cristo Redentor. Other popular monuments include the Catedral Metropolitana and Ilha Fiscal. 
Rio also has a number of museums where ... More visitors can learn more about the history and culture of this beautiful city.
Perhaps the biggest attractions of this city are the Carnival, the New Year parties and other cultural extravaganzas that are held round the year. People from all over the world come to watch the cariocas celebrate these festivals with their unique and colourful parades, dance and music.

General opinion:  The first Portuguese explorers that arrived at Guabanara bay were amazed because of its extraordinary beauty. Rio de Janeiro grew up to the sides of the bay, the Marvelous City. Fantasy name to a perfect combination of sea, earth, climate and people.
A nice mixture of the Indian, White and Black cultures, fermented in a magnificent natural scenery. Cosmopolitan city, Brazil’s capital for almost 200 years, Rio de Janeiro is one of the most main culture centers on the country, with a lot of cinemas, theaters, museums, rooms of concert, show houses, art galleries ... More and libraries. Big gastronomical zone, the restaurants on the city offer a lot of options, from international cookery to typical dishes from all Brazilian regions.
Very few cities in the world are able to concentrate, in a very cool way, all the little icons that makes life a party: beach, sun, samba, frozen beer, tasteful food, football, beautiful people, streets with light curves that lead to little tropical forests. Rio de Janeiro is an intense modernity, and it’s also a quotidian meeting with the past. The baroque art found in churches and monasteries, the deco art found in very preserved residential facades, the modernist architecture from 1950’s: all of these elements make Rio a witness of its own history.
Rio is a city that echoes, vibrates. With the sound of surdos, tabors, tambourines and cuicas, that mark the compass of Carnival. With the explosion of a goal in Maracanã stadium, where 170 thousand people support their football teams.
With the roaring of the waves in the rocks and with the colourful crack of fireworks in the Réveillon. Rio pulsates in a permanent celebration to life.

Not to miss: It's a very big city, full of excesses and contradictions in all directions. It's well worth a visit just for this, but also for the sea and the friendly people. You should go with at least one travelling companion. Don't miss the Ipanema and Copacabana beaches and the beautiful view of the city from the Corcovado mountain. Have a good trip!
