Visiting Rio: Where to Stay

When visiting Rio, I recommend staying in either Ipanema or Leblon, as these are the most tourist-friendly neighborhoods in the city, providing you with easy access to all the main attractions. Copacabana is still quite successful in its “tourist-appeal” but personally, I’m not a fan, particularly since it’s not as safe as Ipanema and Leblon (and doesn’t offer as many “trendy” places to go…). 


In my opinion, the only exception to staying in Ipanema/Leblon is if you’d rather stay at a boutique hotel, which is an experience in and of itself (see next post).
