    Mama Ruisa is a brilliant little gem in the middle of Rio. The entire team makes you feel at home and welcome. I simply cannot think about anything that was not up to the standard I expected: the bed was good, the shower well equipped,...More

    Santa Teresa
    Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local
    artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this
    neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors
    can now stroll through this area to view magnificent
    mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th
    century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a
    former mansion turned museum which houses works by
    prominent Brazilian modern artists.
