  • Leveraging the combo with the Museum of tomorrow (R$32 whole entry to both museums), I decided to meet the sea, but I confess that I was a little disappointed. The exhibition "Dja Guata However: Rio de Janeiro indigenous" brings several historical information and the vision of the Indians on the history of European pós-expedições Brazil (post 1500), but is poor visually.

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.
