Private Apartment Rocinha

Enjoy the whole apartment for 3 in the heart of the vibrant Rocinha favela, with a rooftop terrace that boasts vast mountain, community and sea views. Make the most of the excellent location near to São Conrado beach, several spectacular hikes including Pedra da Gavea and Dois Irmãos, and Barra da Tijuca, home to various Olympic venues. Experience the real Rio with safety, comfort, and excitement!

THE EXPERIENCE
Immerse yourself in the real Rio de Janeiro by staying in the favela of Rocinha, a safe urban community vibrant with music, food, art, and fun. Enjoy many cultural and adventure activities in or near Rocinha, including hang gliding, surfing, rock climbing, trekking, favela walking tours, samba, martial arts, and "funk carioca" parties. (We can even get you discounts--just ask!) Moreover, located in the heart of Rio's exclusive South Zone, you'll be a short van, bus, or taxi ride away from the beaches of Ipanema, Copacabana, and Leblon, Rio's downtown, and the alternative scene of Botafogo.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Rocinha is Latin America's largest favela with 300,000 residents and much culture and fun to offer you. The community brings together residents from all ethnicities, dialects, and regions of Brazil. Yes, residents are generally low-income, and the community is often neglected by the government. Nonetheless, what people lack in financial wealth, they more than make up for in hospitality, authenticity, and resilience.
There's lots for you to do in and near Rocinha, including:
• Take a walking tour through a favela led by English-speaking resident-guides, catching a breathtaking rooftop view, descending through a maze of alleyways, and learning about favela history, culture, and everyday life.
• Check out a Carnaval rehearsal by an official samba group representing the favela
• Rent a surf board and catch some waves at nearby São Conrado beach
• Hike up the Morro Dois Irmãos ("Two Brothers Hill"), and watch the sunrise, overlooking all of Rio
• Grab a chilled beer and salty snack at one of Vidigal's many botecos (bars)

TRANSPORTATION
There are public buses (each about $3.80 BRL) that stop within a 1-minute walk of the house. Passing every few minutes, this public transportation goes to the lively neighborhoods of Leblon, Ipanema, Copacabana, Botafogo, and Leme.

THE HOST
Your host Cilene, originally from the northeastern city of Pernambuco, is well known in Rocinha as one of the 4 female mototaxi drivers in the 200+ mototaxi driver community. She is an incredibly warm and welcoming host, who will always be nearby to answer any queries, solve any problems or give useful advice in order to for you to enjoy your stay as much as possible.

SAFETY
Rocinha's 24/7 police protect the community as part of a government program introduced before the 2014 FIFA World Cup. In reality, tourists are safer in Rocinha than in some of Rio's most "touristy" areas. Unlike other parts of the city, you'll feel a real sense of community in the favelas, where everyone looks out for their neighbors.
You can maximize your safety if you:
• Don't take photos of people without permission
• Never use or buy illegal drugs
• Consume alcohol in moderation
• Listen to your hosts about safety
