About the neighbourhood
The Penthouse is located at the 11th floor in the best point of Ipanema Beach, Rio de Janeiro. It is 5 minutes walk from the beach and close to the best restaurants of Ipanema. Easy access to all public transportation, taxis and parking. It is 500m from Copacabana beach, 5km from Sugar Loaf cable car, 8km from the Christ statue train, 12 km from historic center, 15km from Maracanã stadium, 26km from the International Airport. The beauty and the charm of Rio de Janeiro internationally known. From this penthouse you may see most the major points from its terrace at once.
Getting around
Transportation from the International Airport to the apartment is very easy. Leaving customs you will see in your right side some counters selling Taxi vouchers. They speak English and you may pay with credit card (approx. US$35). Regular taxi cue is a little ahead, but normally they speak a little or no English and you need to pay in local currency (aprox. US$25). Make sure that the driver turns on the taximeter. Depending on the traffic, it may take about one hour. For everyday use, Uber is the best solution. However I will be easly accessible for any information or hint that you may need.
