What do you like about Rio de Janeiro?
The city's natural beauty; excellent music, dance, and theater; relaxed social environments. The city's history is also fascinating.

Extreme disparity of wealth; excessive attention to physical beauty; (often disguised) racism


What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
Botafogo, Jardim Botânico, Gávea, Leblon, Centro

One of the most expensive cities in Latin America.

Excellent, especially in October and April

A very dynamic, fascinating city.
