Day 4 of our trip was when we were done with work. Initially we planned to extend our trip in the same hotel, but due to unavailability of rooms at the last moment, we had to check out. This turned out to be good for us as we then checked into Windsor Martinique at Copa Cabana.
Windsor Martinique is a 2.5/3 star hotel located at the heart of Copa Cabana. The per room per night cost at this hotel would still be around 6,000 INR. Though not as good a property as Windsor Marapendi, there is a minor difference in rates due to the location. Windsor Marinique is situated right in the heart of one of the most famous beaches in the world. This hotel is a 2 min walk from the beach. It is in one of the lanes near the beach and therefore does not have any ocean facing view. There are a lot of 5 star properties in Copa cabana beach lined one after the other. Being a major tourist destination, there must be more than 100 hotels in and around Copa Cabana. A normal google search will give you all the options.
Day 4 was completely dedicated to sight seeing. Rio is a classic example of 'A tale of two cities'. A mix of development and underdevelopment, rich and poor, expensive and cheap - Rio has it all.
We pre booked a tour which covered all the major touristy attractions in Rio - The main attractions included sugar loaf mountains, statue of Christ the redeemer, Selaron Steps and Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Sebastian.
