Brazil has a great diversity of people, nature and the culture, you can easliy feel it while walking to restaurants with comfortable dress and passing by all the local places in Rio. People are positive and super friendly regardless of their differences.
People are running, biking, surfing, doing yoga or work out on the beach early mornings. There are a lot of way to start a great day here.
Hotel Arpoador offers a great #yoga at the terrace on mondays, wednesdays and fridays, where you can enjoy the panoramic view of Ipanema.
If you prefer to stay in an alternative area like Santa Teresa, Chez Georges is the fantastic stay with a beautiful house. You can feel like in a jungle in the middle of a big city. Santa Teresa is surrounded with great tropical nature and birds, you can see parrots, monkeys, maybe even toucans between the banana, mango, avocado trees...
