DAY 03 | RIO DE JANEIRO

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the hotel before heading out for a day on your own, or choose to take part in an optional tour.

This evening will be spent in Rio's Lapa District, where the music and nightlife scene is fast and furious! Rio's exciting beach lifestyle transcends the city's nightlife and in no place is this more evident than in Lapa. Located in Downtown Rio, Lapa is an old city neighborhood traditionally known for its culturally vibrant atmosphere. Dance the night away at local favorites like Carioca da Gema or Rio Scenarium, enjoying the sounds that define Brazilian music such as samba and chorinho. Cruise through the cobblestone streets under the famous Arcos da Lapa until the wee hours of the morning and feel as if you were transported back to turn-of-the-century Rio de Janeiro. Arrive the way the locals do, taking the bus in Copacabana heading towards Lapa. When it comes time to leave, catch a taxi with your “buddy guide”. Consumption and Bar entrance fees should be paid for individually.
