Are You Confused About Going To Rio De Janeiro?

Planning a trip to a new city can be extremely stressful.

Imagine all the tough questions that pop up in your head while you search the Internet looking for the best deals and steals.

  • Where should I stay?
  • How can I buy a CHEAP and LEGIT plane ticket?
  • How do I avoid getting ripped off?
  • Can I visit a favela safely?
  • Where are the dangerous areas to AVOID?
  • What are the best clubs and restaurants?

These questions are common and people send them all the time to me via email.


These People Are Smart

It’s crucial you get the right information and avoid wasting your time in Rio – even if it’s your first trip and you’ve already told yourself, “I’ll be back”.

There’s no point in going to Rio if you plan to waste it making first-timer mistakes you can avoid.

Do you know the 3 main reasons people end up not liking Rio de Janeiro after one trip?

  1. Ignorance – I’ve seen people say Rio is overrated. Nine times out of ten they didn’t even leave Copacabana because they didn’t know where to go. Ignorant of what the city has to offer.
  2. Worry – When you don’t know what you are doing, you worry a lot about not fu@king up! You are worried about not getting ripped off and being a target. Don’t worry your trip to mediocrity. Leave the headaches to me.
  3. Confusion – People get confused about traveling all the time. Paying for overpriced flights and getting wrong information from different people. When you get bad INFO about Rio, you think Rio is bad. But it ain’t.


Would your trip planning to Rio de Janeiro be more awesome, less confusing and stress-free if you already knew:

  • Where to find awesome plane tickets on popular American airlines like Delta – for $100 – $300 less than their normal price on
  • The greatest party venues
  • Must-see attractions with world-class tour guides – even if you are on a strict budget
  • How to visit FAVELAS safely with official tour guides (recommended on your first trip)
  • The best apartments to book in Ipanema and Copacabana with beautiful beach views – so you can see all the Zona Sul action

Plan Right While Going To Rio de Janeiro

Here’s the deal.

I’m not going to just personally handpick things for you to do or only use my knowledge of Rio de Janeiro – I’m going to also talk with Brazilians who know their city 100x more than anyone else.

I’m going to pass on more information about:

  • The craziest clubs
  • The parties with the best Brazilian people
  • The cream of the crop apartments where locals stay
  • The most delicious food for people who love to eat
  • And much more

Most of my Brazilian friends only speak Portuguese so I will be like the bridge that connects to you.

You’ll know waaaaaaaaay more about going to Rio de Janeiro than others who don’t take the time to ask the right questions to the right people.

While other visitors do the same Rio , you’ll be experiencing a different side of Brazil the average person will never know about.

I’m going to find out all this important information for you. And update this article over time. For FREE.

BUT, you have to meet 3 conditions.

  1. You have to be a subscriber to Rio In A Week.
  2. You have to be going to Rio de Janeiro this YEAR.
  3. You have to be cool.

The Process

  1. I keep my ears and eyes to the streets for the best (attractions, tour guides, favela tour, apartments, flights , etc)
  2. You leave a comment below about anything in particular you would like to know.
  3. I use a combination of my experience, my Brazilian friends/connects, etc.
  4. I update this article every now and then with all the information I gather while you use your time and energy handling more important things.


  • Only Rio de Janeiro trips.
  • If I find a flight for $500 round-trip, you gotta book it ASAP. I doubt it will be around forever.
  • Clubs can be hit or miss depending on the night you go. We all know that. But every club/party I recommend will be solid.
  • I’m only doing this for 2016. Why? I’m slowing down on Rio In A Week articles this year but I still want to help out people who check the site out.


Overall, this is FREE. I’m taking time to help Rio In A Week subscribers who may need help.

It’s another way for me to say thanks for checking out the site. You can be reading any other blog, but you chose to read this one now.
