  • It's pretty amazing to have that little bit of Northeast in the middle of Rio de Janeiro. I am in love with the baião two with salted meat and fried cassava, which is even better with a forrózinho after. Also, try one of the tapiocas, sweets typical Brazilian fruit sorbets (those with hard-to-remember name) and artisanal cachaças.

  • This fair is inside a pavilion and suggest that be verified the input value, because it depends on the attraction that will be the day. There's many restaurants, bars, karaokes, clothing shops and souvenirs. There you can still hear and see a real Northeastern forro. Recommend enough!

  • The fair of St. Kitts is a place where you can find every kind of product from the North and northeast of Brazil. Has parking, which in full days can be a martyrdom, because on the outside are dozens of keepers intimidating motorists. The entry at the fair is also charged, R $5.00 honest price. The last time I went to frisked before entering. Inside there are several restaurants, bars and shops with products ranging from food to handicrafts. The night also has show in 2 stages. The bad part is the invasion of Chinese products, nothing against that, but I think there is not the place for that. And also for the side streets, a lot of closed shop, dirt everywhere. Although everything is worth the visit, mainly to eat! Impossible not to get ice cream of tapioca or umbu.

  • It's a little piece of Brazil's Northeast Culture in the middle of Rio de Janeiro. It's possible to eat, drink, dance and buy all sort of things people from Northeast States use to. There is parking area with fixed price so you can enjoy the place all the time you want to. You can get there by bus too. It's a little messy but in some way it feels fine. Relax, get in the mood and have fun.
  • Local indoor market.. Live music.. Nice food for good prices..
  • A wonderful market where you can find a very nice handmade clothes and articles for the house. The prices are cheap and the food just delicious.
  • Great: Food, karaoke, theme photos, vibe. Watch out for the guy charging R$2.00 for a photo with the wooden donkey, looked dodgy to me.
  • A big place where you can eat and drink. I was there in the weekend and there was live music.

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.
