Rio gay guide
Rio is everything you can expect from a Brazilian city: chaotic, steamy and vibrant. Rio de Janeiro is beautifully situated at the Atlantic coast around a couple of bays and beaches which give you spectacular views on the city. In one glance you can see the wealth of areas like Ipanema or Copacabana and the poverty of the surrounding favelas. It proofs how fascinating Rio de Janeiro can be.
