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.

  • The African slavery´s holocaust the happened in Brazil can’t be forgotten. Here the slaves that arrived died in Rio de Janeiro Bay or that died just before the market was barried here. Thereis a lot o...  more »
  • Behind the small facade of the IPN there is much to be discovered. In fact, discovery is the word that defines the appearance of the Institute. Was in the midst of an excavation, a reform in the House of the Lord Petrucio (founder and Director of the institution), in 1996, who discovered the cemetery of the "New Black", name given to black people from Africa, who arrived in Rio de Janeiro at Cais do Valongo, already dead or sick, and who died even before they are marketed. Were buried in shallow grave, without any religious ceremony or rite, as indigent. Some bones and artifacts found can be seen at the site, which was transformed into archaeological site and cultural center. You can see the archaeological team working there. Can't beat pictures, but, on the other hand, can chat with Reinaldo, responsible for all archaeological research. Nice talk is also Antonio Carlos, who meets all with a lot of enthusiasm and a broad smile on his face. Antonio is one of the guides who performs weekly visits, promoted by IPN, in the so-called African heritage history circuit in the central region and the river port. The tour and many other activities, such as courses, workshops, exhibitions and the collection of a library, are on your disposal at the Institute of research and New Black Memory, down the street Pedro Ernesto, in Gamboa. I recommend! Super helpful staff awaits your visit Institute of Tuesdays to Fridays, from 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm or on Saturdays, from 11:00 to 2:00 pm. Oh! And has water and coffee, comfortable, waiting for the visitors. The IPN is the right destination for those who want to know more about the history of Rio de Janeiro, our origins, the slave trade, the memory and afro culture and its influences in our country. Set aside a little time on the agenda to meet the Institute. Is very worthwhile!

  • Located in Rua Pedro Ernesto downtown is a IOnstituto open to visitation and must pay attention to the timetables.

  • Crucial place to go if you want to know more about Brasilian history and African heritage. It's recommended to have a tour with Rio EnCantos Tour agency on the surroundings to get the contextualization of the site.
  • A magnificent place, where you go back in time and makes you think about life today. And the family well.

  • The IPN is a memory Museum that aims to contribute to the socio-cultural development of the country, through actions, research and preservation of African cultural heritage and African American diasporic perspective, aimed at building on the gift of memories buried in the past.

  • Historic site gives city by the New Black Cemetery. Worth knowing the spot a place that represents barbarism faced by Africans who arrived in the 18th and 19th centuries.

  • Very good! Should become a public museum sponsored by the city.
