Samba classes

31 Mar

Part of living in a community in Rio is that you also have the chance to mingle into the local culture. The community organizes every week different classes going from samba & Forro (dance from the North of Brazil) to Kickbox classes. Its a nice opportunity to have a free workout, learn and meet new people.

When staying in the Safetyinnrio, we’ll gladly inform you about the events taking place.


Rainforest as your garden

31 Mar
Safetyinnrio is located on the Morro da Babilônia. The views from the hill are truly breathtaking. The deep blue ocean and the beauty of the forest, interspersed with landmarks such as Sugarloaf Mountain truly do justice to Rio’s nickname “The Marvelous City”.The trail follows an easy 2-km route in an environmental protected area. The walk through the Atlantic Rainforest offers a wonderful introduction to Rio’s vegetation and mountain views. The hike takes about 1-2 hours, depending on the time taken to make pictures of some of the best views over Rio. 

More than a house

Safetyinnrio is more then just a house or a place to sleep. We hosted already many people from over the whole world. In many cases friendships where build with not only the house’ residents but also with the locals of the community. For sure a lifetime experience never to forget !
