SWC Travels: Rio de Janeiro

Stunning beaches, great nightlife, spectacular food, amazing people, Rio de Janeiro is a city that doesn’t need an introduction; just take a look at one of its most spectacular beaches, Copacabana and Ipanema, and you’re hooked. I’ve had the chance to visit Rio de Janeiro twice and it is a city I cannot get enough of; there’s so much to do and it is definitely one of my favorite places to visit! In here, I will be sharing places to see, to eat, and enjoy!

A lot of the questions I get asked when I travel is, how do you know what to do in a city you’ve never been to before? Well ladies and gents, this is where Instagram has become my FAVORITE tool + best friend to scout places to eat, see and do.
