Home-Cooked Meal with a View in Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro, BrazilCall For Price 1/2 Day

Our Local, Paula, will meet you outside the Marina Palace Hotel in Leblon just across from the beach. Together you will grab a fresh coconut water and (weather permitting) go for a walk along the beach to get acquainted. When you are ready, Paula will take you to her home, where you will enjoy a stunning view of the Christ the Redeemer statue and Sugarloaf Mountain. Since cooking is one of her passions, she will prepare a traditional meal with seafood or vegetarian (according to your preference). Of course, no meal is complete without a beverage, and when in Rio you have to start with a local cachaças and/or caipirinhas, appropriate with any Brazilian dish. Paula loves to share her Brazilian culture and life story over a meal, and it will be a pleasure for her to have you as guests.


After lunch, you’ll take a stroll in a beautiful setting not far from her house ― the Instituto Moreira Salles, an incredible work of architecture in the middle of a luxuriant forest. It’s a masterpiece with Italian influence. Paula will share a few pointers and tips with you on how you can spend the rest of the day and/or evening while in the area. (Note: if you speak some Portuguese, Paula will be delighted to help you practice!)
