We would like to give a special thanks to our awesome locals Janine and family for sharing their Rio with us!!!
Whether you’re planning to go to Rio at some point in the future or if you’re going there just for the World Cup in Brazil and will be in Rio for a bit, you might want to check some of these places out.
Rio is going to be home to the final of the World Cup. Some places can be expensive so you might want to be a bit selective with your choices.
Remember to make reservations in advance as everything is going to be packed up until the end of the World Cup.
