Amazing helicopter ride and Luxury hotel in Rio de Janeiro
We just got back from an amazing experience in Rio de Janeiro – Brazil. I am going to share where we stayed and what we did there in 2 days. If you plan right you can accomplish a lot in only 2 days 🙂 We arrived in Rio, early in the morning ( around 7:30 am) that gave us a huge advantage of starting our day nice and early. We stayed at the iconic Belmond Copacabana Palace hotel, and what an amazing way to start our stay in Rio.
Belmond Copacabana Palace is the most iconic hotel in Rio de Janeiro, and in Brazil, with almost a century of existence. I’ve always wanted to stay there, and it was a great experience. Starting from our arrival, all the staff were extremely polite and caring for our family. We stayed in a beautiful suite on the second floor; our room had a small balcony with a beautiful view of the Copacabana beach. See images below :
The most charming Balcony in Rio de Janeiro
The pool and Breakfast:
Having breakfast at the hotel was a great experience, we loved the variety of food, especially all the typical tropical options from Brazil.
We will be definitely be staying here again when we go back to Rio! Thank you Belmond Copacabana Palace for the amazing and unforgettable experience!!
Rio de Janeiro from Above – Helicopter Ride
We did a helicopter ride with Rio 2 Fly I highly recommend them; they were very professional, on time, and patient with Abbie ( who is 6 years old). She was afraid of going inside of the helicopter and they were very patient with us. It was defiantly one of the coolest things we ever did in our lives. HIGHLY recommend doing this if you plan to visit Rio. We did the 30 min tour and we flew over the main beaches of Rio and of course the sugar loaf and the Christ.
We went on the smaller helicopter (it only fits 4 people including the pilot), it has the best panoramic view, almost a 360 degrees view, Amazing! They also have a bigger helicopter for more people, but the view is not as great!
Restaurant (Rooftop) with a View in Rio de Janeiro
We checked out the rooftop restaurant in Rio, located at the hotel YooRio, It is located in Botafogo and the views are just beautiful. Too bad the day we went was cloudy and the views were not as great, but I got a picture of what it looks like with a clear day.
Below are the images from the time we went. The food is more like finger food style and hamburgers, and I have to say they all taste AMAZING!!! this place is a must!!
I hope you enjoyed my post, after our stay in Rio, we went to Angra dos Reis, I will be posting soon about that experience!
