8. It was decided to fly in and out of Sao Paulo. From Sao Paulo, I went to Rio de Janerio, the host city for the Olympics, which has been known world over for its beautiful beaches and party places, apart from the Christ the Redeemer &amp; Sugar Loaf mountain.
Rio was more chilled out because our host took us to the more relaxed blocos whereas Salvador was a bit more hectic as its the biggest street party in the world. They were different in their own ways and I couldn’t advise which is best, but either way stay with a Couchsurfing host to get the best experience.
