Go to the Beach

Top 10 things to do in Brazil


Top 10 Things to Do in Brazil (Rio)Look, whether you know it or not, Brazillians wear small bathing suits, and they rock them. The guys wear speedos and the women wear tiny little bikinis. I don’t know if women are all really big into working out their glutes or what, but they just have the most curvy, veluptuous butts we’ve ever laid eyes on. Going to the beach is a real treat on the eyes, for men OR women. The guys are tanned and buff, and the women are half naked and sexy. **Special note** Guys: don’t wear board shorts. If you don’t want to stand out like a tourist, you gotta show some thigh! In case you were wondering, yes, I bought a speedo.

A beautiful combination of dance and martial arts, capoeira is a popular, widely practiced art style in Brazil. Guys (mostly) practice it in training gyms and even at the beach or on the streets. You’ll see it everywhere. We had a couple guys approach us at a bar one night, basically doing capoeira performances for some tip money. It was really cool. We fancy ourselves as pretty fit, capable young men, so we played along with them. We would go back and forth ducking and dodging different types of leg swings and stuff. We were obviously amateurs but it was easy enough to simulate, and we made some new friends in the process.

Buzios is a resort town located only an hour or two from Rio De Janeiro. It is commonly used as a ‘getaway’ from the hustle and bustle of Rio, but even on its own, has a lot to experience and enjoy. There are quality resorts, nice bars, big clubs, great shopping, and water activities… just to name a few. We could spend a couple hours every day checking out the different shops, even if we never bought anything. There’s even McDonalds and Subway if you’re so inclined! The west coast beaches offer calm, clear water, whereas the east coast beaches are facing the sea and are more surf and water-sports friendly. Special note: Pacha Mama club in Buzios is a huge nightclub and a great time. Check it out.

So these probably aren’t the most exciting things for everybody, but we loved the concept of having free exercise stations all over the place (mostly along the beaches in Rio) and we wish we had them in Vancouver. So the workout stations made our list Rio, in general, is very health conscious and there are huge bike/skate/jogging lanes beside the beaches too. People are definitely exercise-driven. The little workout stations are located roughly every 1 or 2 kilometers and have no moving parts to them. It’s just solid metals bars for pull-ups, dips, and calisthenic exercises. This way nothing can break and they require no upkeep from the city. We had the tendency to stop every time we passed one to get our pump on too.

Is Brazil really that dangerous? | Yahoo Answers

I've heard from the Lonely Planet Brazil travel guide that cities like Rio De Janeiro and Sao Paulo are crime ridden cities. Based on your experiences (if you have been to Brazil), what can you say about this issue? How do you survive those bad hangovers criminals give you? Any suggestions? Thanks!
