Rio de Janeiro is a huge seaside city in Brazil, famed for its golden beaches, lush mountains, iconic landmarks and sprawling favelas. There is really no other place quite like the fun loving city of Rio.  With the recent World Cup and upcoming Olympics, the city is drawing more people to its shores than ever before.  Here is the breakdown of our trip to Rio:


  • Time Cost
    • Total Days In Rio de Janeiro: 5 days
    • Total Days Off From Work: 2 days
  • Monetary Cost
    • Flight: $375 pp
    • Hotel: $200 per night for 4 nights

It was a short trip, but long enough for us to fall in love with everything about Rio.  Little moments captivated and drew me to this city: looking over the edge and seeing the jaw-dropping views at the top of Corcovado; walking through a rainforest in the heart of the city; spending the evening dancing in Lapa; sitting quietly on the beach watching the sun set behind the mountains. Even though there were so many mishaps, it does not deter us from wanting to come back. Especially since there were so many things left to do and see.
