  • For the fame that this island has, should be much better. We went on a Saturday around lunchtime, and to everyone's surprise, several restaurants closed. The fuller was on the other side of the channel and we needed to pay off the boat just to go see if there was something good, this was moved. We drove the whole island on foot and we didn't see anything interesting, I may have some good place, but we didn't see anything too much.

  • Hidden in Barra da Tijuca, Gigóia Island passes unnoticed by most natives and visitors. However, it is worth knowing that picturesque location where not moving cars and offering a variety of dining options. Transfer to island is made by vessels which we access behind the Unimed. The price ranges from 1 to 4 real, depending on the point of the island who wish to stay. Recommend it to anyone who likes lunch a little later, as the Sun is the high point of the island. Recommend a visit. It's an interesting ride, but to which we should not expect anything but cool.

  • Recommend to everyone! Family, friends, children, without children, boyfriends, alone: the island offers an atmosphere of peacefulness and good food. We parked on the Point on Avenida Armando Lombardi (12.00 to 4:00) and take the ferry on the Street between the Unimed is the Point Bar (half hidden). Dali paid 5.00 per person and ask to stay in the point of the dock Bar (there are several restaurant options), I also recommend (affordable and well prepared food). Then we went out the back door with access to the streets of the island and discovered that the crossing between the banks through the main entrance of the island costs only 1.00, did you not 2 min superagradável day and different! There are many options of hostel throughout the island and the energy is amazing. Looks like we're back in big island, in the middle of the business center that is the bar. There will be good time!

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.
