When my guests request a tour in the night spots of Rio they really want to see the real Brazil in one night. And I gladly accept any request because I know where the culture of my people can be found, in places where no tourist goes. RIO IS FULL OF TOURIST TRAPS, places where a visitor can have a very plastic show of Samba where some guides are just interested to get comissions or they are taken to places where the entrance admission costs a fortune and they do not give anything in return for our guest really experience the best of our daily life!!!
It is sad because the Tourism Industry are not so concerned about providing the real taste of a simple way to have fun in Rio!!! And that is very simple!!!
Just go to where our people love to go...Brazil is a country of endless diversity and Rio de Janeiro is one of the biggest urban centers in the country, so people from other States come to Rio to live and work.
I am a big fan of a region in Brazil called REGIÃO NORDESTE...In the North East of our country, and I know exactly where they go in the weekends to have fun...
FEIRA DO NORDESTE IS ONE OF THE TEMPLE OF REAL JOY IN RIO DE JANEIRO!!!
When you first go there you think it is a Stadium, the parking places are packed with cars and the music you listen from quite a distance.When you get inside you see thousand and thousand of stores selling everything you can imagine, tastes and smells in every corner you go. You can also see clothes and artcrafts to sell and in the Stadium there are two long walkaways with a lot of restaurants. The variety is massive and you can find the best of our Brazilian Food everywhere. But I always go to a restaurant called CHIQUITA where they treat my guests as KINGS and also a place where I know the owners, they are my great friends and I am sure everyone I take there will be very happy with the exquisite quality of the food and perfect service.
In every meal you can be sure that Leonel, one of the owners of the house, come to us and make sure himself if everything is going well. It is like going to a house woith a huge party and the hoster will come direct to you to offer the best of his house!!! LEONEL ALWAYS SALUTES US WITH GREAT ENTHUSIASM AND JOY.
It is a place where you can eat and dance, it is a place where you can see our real people in total happiness!!! Most of my guests had the chance to be there and they really want a second visit!!! :) People from USA, CANADA, ISRAEL and more nationalities had experienced such a great time in Feira do Nordeste!
Once you go to Feira do Nordeste you can be sure that you experienced the best of our culture and the best of our genuine happiness!!!
THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE OPTIONS FOR A NIGHT TOUR. We take anyone there, it is a must go place in the night of Rio.
FEIRA DO NORDESTE OPENS EVERY FRIDAY TO SUNDAYS, 24 HOURS!!!
Be sure that I will always recommend to you one evening in this TEMPLE OF REAL BRAZILIAN CULTURE!!!! Your fun will be absolutely guaranteed!!!
