You will be staying at Mango Tree Hostel for three nights and at Rio Surf N Stay for four nights. All of the accommodations will be a six-bed dorm. Both places are located near the beach (Ipanema Beach near the city center and Macumba Beach which is more isolated).

Mango Tree Hostel

Located in one of the best spots in Rio de Janeiro where is just a block away from the world-famous Ipanema Beach, the Mango Tree Hostel offers a relaxing place to sleep, meeting other travelers, and tasting a chilled caipirinha. At the hostel, you will find the comforts of a guest house (sprung mattresses, 100% cotton sheets, towels, a real Brazilian style breakfast, and the famous gas heated power showers) coupled with the warm welcome and atmosphere of a backpacker hostel. The Mango Tree Hostel is based in a newly renovated 1930s colonial style house in a quiet residential area. It has 13 private rooms (two triple rooms, two twin rooms, 10 with en-suite, and all are air-conditioned), 30 dorm beds, and all the facilities to make your stay with Mango Tree Hostel the most memorable of your trip.

Program

During this surf camp, you will have three group surfing lessons and two tours (Big Dude and Favela). Due to its abundance of beautiful beaches, surfing is a favorite pastime in Rio de Janeiro.

Big Dude tour

In the Big Dude tour, you will head out for a jam-packed day to see all of Rio de Janeiro’s best sights. This tour is the most comfortable and convenient way to check out the must-see attractions of Rio de Janeiro such as Christ the Redeemer statue, Lapa Selaron steps, Tijuca Forest National Park, and others.

Favela walking tour

You will enjoy a day tour of the Rocinha favela (shantytown) that is the largest favela in South America. Most visitors to Rio de Janeiro have probably heard about or seen the "City of God" movie. To be honest, Local 55 feels that the movie creates an unfortunate stereotype of this marvelous city and many favelas in Rio. In order to correct this stereotype and show people the true modern Rio de Janeiro, Local 55 teams have developed a special favela tour. The tours are organized by the local English-speaking tour guide, Bruno, who comes from Rocinha.
