  • Sensational and recommended especially to who thinks Brazil's northern slave view obsolete weapons from Earth and imagine the modern. The bad news is the small space, larger people can't move there. Free entrance on Tuesdays.

  • For military enthusiasts, the walk through the submarine Riachuelo and ship Bauru is mandatory. Extremely cheap price and a beautiful experience, entering a military submarine is something extremely interesting. Highlight to the command room, with Periscope that still works. Obviously, as stated, is not recommended for claustrophobic and, also, for people above 1.90 or 1.95.

  • Know the inside of a submarine is both interesting and frightening, because you imagine a submerged in how narrow that by day is creepy. The boat is well maintained and, and by the region, the visit is valid. Only restriction: the inner space is tight and the passages of a section to another of the submarine are narrow. Don't go if you're claustrophobic, or if you have any difficulty.

  • Excellent open-air museum, with ships, submarine, helicopter and boat trips around the Bay of Guanabara and Fiscal Island. Worth knowing!

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.
