What people are saying:

A night at one of Rio de Janeiro’s infamous favelas, will unquestionably be a new experience you're unlikely to forget in a hurry. Whist the prospect of dancing the night away in one of the city's most dangerous neighbourhoods sounds daunting, the reality is completely the opposite. Brazilians are renowned for knowing how to have a good time, and the nightlife in the favelas epitomises this, as the locals forget about their daily routines and let their hair down for a night of Favela madness! Just make sure you book it through a tour guide, rather than braving it by yourself.

    Don't visit with a tour agency

    The only advice for visiting Rocinha would be to not go with one of the government-funded tour agencies. They are essentially propaganda machines set up to make a profit for the authorities at the exp...

    Colorful stacks (& a "complete favela" tour) :)

    It was just a "somewhat unconventional" tour of riding the metro with my tour guide from Cardeal Arcoverde Station (near where I stayed) to Sao Conrado Station (right near the bottom of this favela) f...

    Very nice tour

    I took a tour with a friend in the Favela, it was nice and very interesting. I do recommend the longer tour, because it felt like it went by very fast. Our guide had a lot of knowledge about the place...

Additional Information

Introduction

The Rosinian slums are located on the mountainside of Mount Jesus, facing the beautiful Ipanema Beach, and you can see the Christ Jesus statue of the New Seven Wonders when looking out from the window. Not far from here are high-rise apartments and luxury commercial buildings. Just a stone's throw away from the bustling scene, the view is completely different, constructing a unique style of Rio de Janeiro. It is the archetype of the ghetto in the movie City of God.
