We are due to arrive in Rio International airport at around 10.30pm on 31/12 ahead of our cruise leaving on Jan, 4th. Not a deliberate choice, just how the flights worked out. I had no idea NYE was such a big deal.
However I am now looking for an hotel in a very crowded market and it occurs to me I may have a real problem actually travelling to an hotel. Suggestions please as to what area to look at and what to avoid. I have no particular need to be near a beach but do want to be near public transport. It looks as if I will be lucky to get away with about £250 per night unless I stay at the Ibis Botofogo.
