Rio de Janeiro is a safe and beautiful city. If you like to have an adventure, here is the best place to do. You can hike in the montains, climb the sugar loaf and you will be amazing how beautiful the city is there. You can go to Búzios that is an 2 hours from Rio and have wonderfull beachs. Ipanema has nice bars and lapa always is great to go out in the night life. You will have a lot to do in Rio, enjoy your time and please don´t use expensive stuff.

Which neighbourhood do you recommend to stay for tourists? (near the main sights, safe, easily accesible)?
For those who want to visit Rio de Janeiro and enjoy the beaches, the beauty of the landscape and the places of entertainment I recommend three basic things: 1. Rio de Janeiro is a safe city, but depends on where you are going to stay in that neighborhood, in that region. Before hiring a Hotel or hostel, please, use the Google Map-streetview-and get to know the neighborhood where you will stay, or visit. 2.

Hi there! Which city would you recommend in Brasil to stay for a while? Dismissing Rio and Sao Paulo as i don't like very big cities cities.. what about Florianopolis, Curitiba orPorto Alegre? i'm looking for a city with cultural activities, safe to go out at night and close to the nature/ sea if possible. Any tips? Thanks so much!
Rio de Janeiro is an amazing city, with amazing sights. I say a visit to Christ Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, Tijuca Forest, Chinese View, Flamengo, Botafogo beach, Urca Bondinho, Largo do Machado. For those who enjoy the nightlife neighborhood of Lapa is wonderful, there has many restaurants, and many foreigners. Climbing the mountain we can find Petropolis, a historic town, rich in natural beauty, even in a town called Itaipava saw where the food is spectacular.
