We are in a very central residential location in Rio. Most tourist attractions are within 15 minutes from our apartment. Looking towards the end of our street you will see the Sugar Loaf. It is a quiet residential area, the apartment complex is very safe, we have 24X7 onsite concierge and security so you will feel safe even when arriving late at night. The area is central, but surrounded by a nice green mountain (no shantytowns around). The subway is two blocks from our street; there are bakeries, pharmacies, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and a large shopping mall within a couple of blocks.
Five minutes walking to metro station. It is easily located both to the beach (one metro stations to Copacabana and three to Ipanema) and to the night life and musical scene of Rio (Lapa). Very close to Sugar Loaf and Christ. It is very easy to catch a cab in the street also, several taxi stops nearby.
