About Our mission is to make you enjoy Rio Feel the Beat of the marvelous city. From the moment the airplane lands at Antonio Carlos Jobim airport, aka Galeao the pulse of the city will invigorate your being. This is the city where the Bossa Nova was born. A city full of culture and music. The beach is not a place but a concept in Rio and for the local Cariocas. This is where you meet friends socialize and have good time. Rio de Janeiro as a city represents a lifestyle where elements like being close to nature are essential. Some Cariocas get up at 5 in the morning every day to go surfing before hitting the traffic to work. We want to give you a taste of the lifestyle this city provides and show you how you can make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We created this site with the intention of making it easier for you to navigate through the options of the marvelous city both if you are a tourist and if you are living in Rio as an expat. We want to give you the tips and tricks on getting around the city, places to stay and most memorable sights. But we also want to go further and share some of the knowledge we have gathered through living many years in the city and in Brazil on topics like safety, bureaucracy and cultural differences. We hope you enjoy your stay in the city, however long it may be. We are also available in Rio de Janeiro with organization of business events, translation services and seminars on cultural differences.
