Curto is a great place to go with friends and taste the best coffee in downtown Rio. With a very friendly service, Curto distinguish itself from the rest.

It is an unfortunate truth that the average coffee cup you'll find in a producing country is far from decent. Having said that, I feel forced to point out an obvious exception: Curto Café. The place is not even a proper café. More of an...More

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together
harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where
all major companies house their offices. However, the
region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like
