Gay tourist guide to Rio de Janeiro

The best areas to stay in Rio de Janeiro are the neighbourhoods of Copacabana or Ipanema. These are the wealthier areas in town and they offer the best shops, restaurants, hotels, gay bars and clubs. And on top, both areas have the most beautiful beaches in town. And Rio summers happen on the beach: just take your towel, your latest Speedo or AussieBum, little money and hit the sand!

Gay beaches and Carnival

Rio de Janeiro is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Rio has quite a vibrant gay life and is famous for the New Years Eve celebrations at the Copacabana beach, the gay beach at Ipanema and of course the Rio Carnival, which is celebrated in the streets and in the massive Sambadrome.

Where to stay?

Make sure you book a hotel early. Best as close to the gay area (Ipanema, Copacabana) as possible. Please support our website and book your hotel here!

Its a big Bar that has a small Club feel. I visited twice during Carnival period, it got busy but not packed. Music was fine. Its ok to be there during week days to enjoy few drinks and watch some shows, coz its worth to spend weekend nights @ The Week (the Greatest Club I bet in South America). After i finished clubbing around 3 I went up to the Le Boy Sauna which you can access from the Bar itself, and again its an average sauna that wasnt so busy, and the crowds were mostly unexperienced very young boys!

The minute I entered, a muscled handsome hottie touched my butt, even before getting to the cashier! So I smiled to him. When I got to the changing room, other gorgeous latinos did similar thing to attract my attention. I took my time to go around. There is a big lounge with bar music tables and drinks, and there were hot boys sitting around an old man drinking. I went to the TV room that's showing straight porno and there were loads of gorgeous boys playing with their huge cocks. I thought i was sitting in Heaven! The guys who sat next to me all tried to get me to take them to a private cabin. It was my first week in Rio (Carnival weekend) so didnt want to pay lot of money in the sauna. I picked up a guy and rented a cabin and b4 starting the action agreed to pay him 80Reals (he said that's a big discount). The cabin i rented was like a hotel room, with huge leather bed a porno channel and ensuit. Its a great safe clean place if your into rent boys but take lot of cash if you want to spend enough time inside and enjoy many of those perfectly sculptured bodies and enermous cocks. It can be very expensive but unique unforgettable experience!!! Cant wait to visit again in 2015!!!

Old but well kept gay sauna. It's clean and there's always someone to have fun with. It's mostly older guys (40s, 50s) but not exclusively. It's a two story building. 1st floor: pool, locker room, bar, toilet, showers, sauna. 2nd floor: private rooms (no additional fee), video room (a small tv), showers, massage rooms. Entrance fee R$ 34
