Two days in Rio...need advice

Jump to last reply

I'll be arriving Rio on Sat 1am and leaving on Monday early morning the last week of August. Given that I only have two days (on a weekend), what is the best way to tour the city (this is my first time in Rio)? I'll be staying in Leblon area.

I am also planning to have one nice meal at a churrascaria (probably Porcao Rio??) and another seafood dinner near the beach if possible. What would be some good restaurant recommendation?

Also, since I'll be arriving at GIG at around 12:30am, is it easy to get a taxi without being ripped off? Thanks!
