Rio De Janeiro Hotels by Style



Rio De Janeiro

Brazils’ second largest city, Rio de Janeiro has it all! It is a cosmopolitan city, combining the buzz of an international capital with the laidback vibe of a beach resort town and a nonstop gay night life scene.

Rio is the perfect vacation spot for anyone looking for an escape from daily routine. Of course it helps that this tropical South American jewel boasts one of the world's most open attitudes toward homosexuality--making it a gay destination par excellence.

Rios beaches are among its greatest attraction. The best-known is Copacabana, bordered by trendy Avenida Atlantica . The area in front of the Copacabana Palace hotel known as Bolsa is the gay zone. Next to Copacabana is the renowned Ipanema Beach, which is divided into a few sub-beaches: Arpoador beach is popular among surfers, while Posto 9 and Posto 10 draw a younger bohemian crowd. The gays are concentrated around Farme de Amoedo, also called Farme Gay.

As one of South America’s most gay friendly cities, Rio offers a myriad of restaurants, bars and clubs catering to a wide range of tastes. Rios gay life is centered around the Ipanema suburb and the neighboring Leblon district where visitors enjoy the city’s concentration of gay venues mixed among major art galleries, universities, theaters and lots of shopping. While samba and bossa nova music can be mainstays for many of the clubs in town, those who prefer to dance the night away to house, techno, hip hop and even rock music won’t have any trouble finding the party scene they seek.
