Boticario Square, Rio de Janeiro

2.0
Boticario Square is a historical location that provides an educational glimpse of how Rio was during the colonial times: a small city square and large fairly well preserved houses surrounded by lush vegetation, with a river running on the edge of the square. This tranquil square is close to Christ the Redeemer entrances and the Corcovado railway station. You can take a brief walk through it while you are waiting for a train departure.

  • It is a beautiful but almost in ruins, a pity that let it in that State. Opposite the Fountain House is inhabited and people sent kids to invite us to go to the House to meet her, but we do not accept. A neighbor of the place then, warned us that it was not safe. When we returned to the hotel also warned us about insecurity expect taxi there. Only to know pass before or after you take the train of the Corcovado.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
