Rio de Janeiro Travelers' Reviews

  FUN IN THE SUN THE SAMBA SWAY!

Very beautiful Country and Big . I landed in Rio De Janeiro via Copa Airlines on Sunday at 6.30am, my flight felt lovely my tummy was feeling cozy from all the delicous drink and food i received on Copa Airlines. As I landed I was being convenienced to change money at the airport . Don't do that just go pull out Reais from a bank once . For 1.00us you can get up to 4.00 REAIS. That's their money . Off to my Airbnb in Lappa Rio which is conveniently near to The Arch , Christ the Redeemer also the Artisty steps . Plus tones of bars lounges and restruanants. Plus near the metro station too. Uber is your best way to get around Rio . It's cheap safe and on time . Plus the people food and music is just uplifting . Also Ipanema and Copacabana beach was just 19mins away . Just learn some porteguesse if you can before you go..or have a friend who speaks the language. Or just have your Google translate with you at all times . Will go back ..Very charming place lots to do and see. - Tricia  Aug 18, 2019
