It's getting closer!! I'm getting very excited. I'll probably post more in the next couple weeks. Thanks so much to the "regulars" and the other tourists for the AWESOME advice and to darmanad for the amazing restaurant reviews. What is a vacation without tons of good food?! MMM.
Okay my questions:
1) Vermelha beach. It looked pretty. How far is it from Ipanema? Good beach to visit?
2) I'd love to do a rafting trip. I noticed a few different companies offered these. I believe it's at RIBEIRÃO DAS LAJES. Anyone been?
3) Surf Bus Beach Tour. Really, really want to do this! We don't want to bring our $200 bodyboards down there in fear they will get ripped off and because its a burden while traveling. Any advice on this or information would be much appreciated. They have a website (surfbus.com.br) but I don't speak Portugese :( I could only pick out little words (not a big help, haha) and look at the pictures.
4) Rio Water Planet. I don't know if its just typical advertising or if its as great as they play off. Is it worth R49 for the day when I live 15 minutes from a water park?
Also, if anyone has been to Best Western Sol Ipanema lately, I'd love to hear what you thought of it after the remodel!
Thanks in Advance.
