Go with us on a jeep tour through the Favela and the Tijuca Rainforest.

We'll pass by Gavea Road and make our way towards Rocinha Slum. Rocinha has around 150,000 inhabitants, making it the largest slum area in South America. During our stay, we will be watching the routine of this community, visiting local houses, day nurseries and schools. We'll walk through the small streets up to the Boiadeiro Square, where there is a free market with food and hand made goods from the North and Northwest regions. Next, we'll proceed for a visit at the gym of Samba School Academicos da Rocinha.

We'll move on to the dense rainforest, in an area of environmental preservation, just ten minutes away from Rio's touristic area, in the Tijuca Rainforest, which is the biggest urban forest in the world, to enjoy a small hike to a waterfall and a few other things along the way.
