Everything went smoothly

Everything went smoothly. We were very pleased with Cecil, our guide in Rio, and India, our guide in Iguazu. Also in Iguazu, the driver, Aloisio(?), was a delightful guy. The day trip to Petropolis was very pleasant. We had a truly outstanding meal, one of the best in Brazil (and we ate at DOM in Sao Paulo and other top restaurants there), at the Leopoldina in the lovely Solar do Imperio Hotel. The best thing about the Porto Bay, by far, was the Copacabana location and the roof deck with spectacular views. Otherwise, the rooms were very plain and the Internet was costly and the connection was quite poor. We liked the Santa Teresa neighborhood and the hotel was great. Unfortunately, there were a couple of holidays and some closings of good spots with the best views. We can recommend a little seafood place near the hotel, Sobre Natural.Iguazu was stunning. Das Cataratas a super place. We liked being able to walk to the Falls just outside the hotel. The day trek and zodiac on the river was a fun adventure. Happy to answer any questions happy to recommend our itinerary and Yampu.
