Things to do in Rio de Janeiro during the weekends


What do you usually do on your weekends in Rio de Janeiro?

Are there any places to visit, any activities, any events or festivals regularly organized you would like to recommend?

What are your top tips for the weekend in Rio de Janeiro?

Thank you in advance for sharing your experience, ;)



FYI.  I am tentatively planning to go to some of the "CHEAP" Olympic games.  If anyone wants to go to the same games, please let me know.

I am interested in the volleyball in Copacabana, the basketball and gymnastic.  The cheap teickets for the opening and closing ceremony are NOT available at this time.

PLEASE if anyone has a negative comment about the Olympics, PLEASE do not tell me about it.  I know how to buy OFF to keep the mosquitos away and wear proper clothes.  I know how to go with little money, wear a cheap watch and go with other people to be safe.  I have been to New Orleans many times and know all about crime and hate.  I have had my ex-wife robbed at 2:00 PM in the afternoon walking down the sidewalk with our daughter in a very nice neighborhood in HOUSTON, TEXAS.  So Again, PLEASE take your negative comments and do NOT respond to my comment.  Many young people have worked for years to prepare for these games.  These young people come from all over to the world.  It may their first or only time to see Brasil.   I wish them well. I will go to support them and have a good time.

If you are interested, please contact me directly.  I prefer to do a Skype video.  This cost is zero!!!!!!!

Crash into your friend's pool house with beers and picanha for a churrasco, that's one of the most popular things to do on weekends

One good thing I like doing in the weekends is traveling to the city of Petropolis, located in the mountains. It takes around 1 hour by car. You find good restaurants, nice climate, and the view is very nice, especially in the surroundings of Petropolis (ARARAS, ITAIPAVA, SECRETÁRIO, FAZENDA INGLESA).
