My house is in a good neighborhood (safe, well located and quiet), where you can walk to Icaraí beach in 20 minutes.
It's a bay beach, so it doesn't have clean water, but you can play sports there.
Just 5 minutes away, you will find supermarkets, drugstores and bars.
If you want to go to Rio, just walk 10 minutes to the bus stop. By uber it will be less than 40 minutes outside peak hours to Lapa, for approximately R$ 40 (reais).
Worldpackers will have a private room, good internet connection and plenty of free time to enjoy the city.
I am willing to accompany you on some outings and if you also love nature, maybe we can take small trips together.
