Rio de Janeiro
After this we flew to Rio de Janeiro, a city that undoubtedly has it all!
In Rio de Janeiro my favorite plan was to ride a bike, there is a route through the entire beautiful beach and you can reach almost any point of the city by bicycle, there is a bicycle service called itau It costs only $ 3 a month and you can reserve it from your phone, download the bike itau application.
In Rio it is also worth doing the free walking tour It is very good because the people who do it really put passion into it and the contribution is voluntary, they take you to the main buildings and tell you the story in a very funny way, additionally it is a very good idea to meet other people who like you are from tourism in the city.
It is also good to visit the beaches of Ipanema, Leblon and Copacabana, Christ the Redeemer (validate the weather before going), sugar bread (you can go up walking and it is a very nice climb, validate the weather before going), Santa Teresa neighborhood, the Selarón stairs, the favellas, there are tours that include several of these sites and that can be a good option since sugar bread costs approximately 30 dollars, Christ the redeemer another 15 and if we add the displacements it can be convenient tours for 70 dollars that include other points, although I went up to the sugar loaf walking, then you can take the cable car being up for 15 dollars, but because of how cloudy it was I did not do it and I love that walk, very beautiful and a climb that changes high in 200 meters.
- Validate several options before deciding where to have lunch, there are places that are exaggerated in their prices and others that offer the same at reasonable prices, we find very good steakhouses for less than 10 dollars per person, you can also find an executive menu as well as an open buffet and buffet by weight.
