In an open-air jeep, venture to Rocinha, Brazil's biggest favela and home to more than 70,000 people. Get a feel for the daily life in the neighborhood as you pass by local homes, visit a samba school, and explore the local market.
Hop in an open-roof jeep with your guide and set off to the famed southern neighborhood of Rocinha, passing through the affluent area of Gávea on the way. Upon your arrival, climb up to the Carlinhos rooftop for an awe-inspiring view of the favela. Take in the impossibly dense array of colorful construction built into a steep hillside and marvel at the contrast of the surrounding trees with the extensive concrete and brick.
Then head down the narrow streets, familiarizing yourself with this unique community, and continue to the public market at Largo do Boiadeiro. Experience the lively and slightly chaotic atmosphere of the plaza, where you can enjoy local delicacies or purchase colorful handicrafts.
Afterward, stop at Rocinha's renowned samba school, where students learn Brazil's classic rhythmic dance. Your memorable visit to Rocinha concludes with a ride back to your hotel via the charmingly scenic Avenida Niemeyer.
