Rio de Janeiro rocketed to fame through winning two bids; the Football World Cup and the 2016 Olympic games. This is your chance to discover what has had so many people going crazy for the past couple of years, you won’t be disappointed.
You will be staying at the Elegance Praia Hotel, which has received a really good TripAdvisor rating of 80%! It is located really near to the airport in Flamengo, so you won’t have to go too far to get there. This hotel has a restaurant that you can use if you want to, however I would really recommend just heading into the centre of Rio to see what you can find; there’s so much choice and it’s more fun to soak up the ambiance!
Your stay in this Hotel and your Flights are included in this deal from expedia.co.uk for only £766 per person! This is a really good deal because flights alone normally cost more than the total price of this trip, so this is definitely not something you want to miss out on!
Whilst in Rio, there is so much for you to do. There are the obvious things, like go to Copacabana beach and head up to the Christ the Redeemer Statue. There are also some things that aren’t as well-known that I would recommend doing. I would suggest heading to the Rio Scenarium, where you can experience the real music of Brazil and watch (maybe even join in with) them dancing. It’s hectic, it’s busy and it’s seriously good fun, it’s the perfect place to go to let loose and enjoy yourself!
I would also recommend you go and the the Parque Large, which has had people visiting it since the 1950’s. It is a really beautiful mansion that was built in the late 19th century and is of Italian design. It’s absolutely beautiful and surrounded by some really romantic gardens. There’s also a really cool hiking trail that leaves from there, be warned it is not easy, so if you’re going to do it pack water, wear hiking boots and be prepared for a real hike up to the Christ!
This is the perfect opportunity for you to get to explore somewhere that is normally not an affordable option for a week’s holiday. This is one of the most affordable deals to Rio that I have seen, so I would consider this deal very carefully if I were you. Rio; hot, humid, energetic, stunning and absolutely enticing.
