The smart thing in Rio is to avoid the beaches and establish you base in Santa Teresa, which is a sort of latin american combination of Kreutzberg (Berlin) and Montmartre (Paris ). The even smarter thing to do is to choose Casa Aurea to get a relaxed and homely feeling to which you can retire after doing the typical Rio tourist activities. Casa Aureas mix of colonial style and breezy approach epitomises Santa Teresa. Our modus operandi was to take the 'Bonde' tram down in the morning but taking a taxi return later to avoid the queues - its always a good idea to travel against the traffic. We staid in a garden room and had private outdoor space but the pation public space is also a nice place with lot of charming artefacts.
