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.
