RIO DE JANEIRO
ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CITIES SERVING ALSO AS THE HOOK UP CAPITAL OF THE WORLD
Lately Rio de Janeiro is becoming a synonym for the perfect gay getaway, especially for Americans. Depending on what are your needs are you can find your hedonistic paradise here.
Firstly, it’s an amazingly beautiful city. Going up the Sugar Loaf and looking back to the city makes you inhale the beauty. Make sure you go there in the late afternoon so you can enjoy the day and night breathtaking views.
Rio has rather safe and very dangerous districts - most of the tourists stay in Copacabana or Ipanema - which is highly recommended. They say even crossing from one to another on foot at night is not safe. But I did it being wasted, saw the police with automatic weapons, said “hi" and everything was fine. Still - I’m not sure if I would do that sober.
Even though Copacabana beach is nicer I would recommend gays to stay in Ipanema - that’s where the gay beach and most of the bars, clubs are located. Every single day in Rio you must spend on the beach and night in the bars and clubs in Ipanema, also visit Lapa some night too.
My best experience was not while clubbing or at beach - it was hang gliding. After I booked it 3 days in advance I literally thought I was gonna die! However, it turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life!
For the gay world - if you’re into steroid muscles and f#cking everything that moves this is your heaven. You can also find nice and amazingly friendly cariocas, but it’s much harder to spot these.
