A família Hereda é sensacional, e aqui foi uma das minhas melhores experiencias sem duvidas, o trabalho é leve e os horários são flexíveis, pude aprender um pouco sobre o surf, e pude desfrutar de momentos maravilhosos no mar andando de stand up ou aprendendo a surfar. Esta localizada a alguns passos da praia da macumba, lugar tranquilo e seguro. Gostei muito, indico a todos worldpackers. :)

Excelent people, Angelo y Simone have two beautiful kids who are always around and all the family is so nice!. They always give you a hand, support and total confidence in your job.
Recreio is safer and more local than the popular rio center, the best for who is looking for tranquility , peace and beautiful beaches to walk around and ride so many kilometers . Not so many backpackers , but full of surf people.

Thanks!! And wish u the best

I would recommend it !

Leaving the gate, the bus stop is across the street to take us to any place in Rio de Janeiro and, very close, i...
