  • As all I know of CCBBs RJ did not disappoint me. In addition to being free offers other attractions besides exhibitions in Gallery.

  • Work close to the CCBB and whenever I can give a little jump over there to see what's good. The weather is always great. Is a good thing in downtown rio.

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.
