The beaches of Rio de Janeiro are where all city life takes place and the ideal place to watch the Cariocas, those charming Rio residents, at play. On a sunny day at the weekend, the sand becomes a hive of activity as girls preen and boys pose, friends reunite to recount the events of the night before, families play ‘frescobol’ and vendors weave their way in and out of the chaos, hollering the names of their wares. It may all seem a little confusing to the uninitiated: should you be donning swimwear in the local style? ; How exactly to play in those waves without losing said swimwear or being knocked down into the sand face first? ; Is it safe to eat the prawns? ; Why does everyone seem to have left their towels at home? For answers to these questions and many more, contact locally based luxury travel specialists Dehouche who have all the answers.
Dehouche have been based in Rio for the last seven years and know all too well how easy it is to fall into the trap we all want to avoid: looking like a gringo. Dehouche’s years of experience however, mean that they are well placed to help you avoid making such embarrassing mistakes as asking for a ‘cocô’ instead of ‘coco’ (beware the syllable stress!)
Book a tailor made trip to Brazil with Dehouche and they will provide you with a whole host of up to date recommendations, from where to buy your swimwear, to where to lay your ‘Canga’ (or sarong) down, to what’s actually inside the ‘Matte’ that seems to be so popular down at ‘Posto 9’ (then you decide if you still want to drink it)
However, Dehouche are by no means complacent and their research is ongoing, continually testing out new bars and restaurants and visiting the beach as often as possible, all so that they can tell you about the latest bikini styles and the local mayor’s latest beach ruling in order to instil ‘order’ in this sometimes crazy city. This is why Dehouche are the market leader when it comes to luxury tailor made family vacations and fabulous Brazil Honeymoon itineraries for the discerning traveller.
The guidebook your cousin lent you may have been published three years ago, and written by someone on a tight budget and deadline but Dehouche are in Brazil today and everyday and spend ruthlessly in the name of research! Let the expert team take care of your travel arrangements and instead of searching the streets for a restaurant which closed down six months ago and wasn’t up to much anyway, be mistaken for a local as you relax on the beach, safe in the knowledge that you have a reservation at the city’s hottest new or consistently perfect venue that night.
Let Dehouche arrange your luxury boutique hotel and enjoy a whole host of insider tips on where to truly escape from it all on your honeymoon.
