Celebrating 2010 in Rio de Janeiro
Ok ya’ll… Where in the world would you rather be than RIO to celebrate the New Year?! Right…. Rio is THE place to be! With Copacabana & Ipanema beaches, the opportunity to admire the sunset in Arpoador, visit the statue of Christ the Redeemer, have lunch in Santa Teresa and party in Lapa, how can you NOT want to be in Rio ?!
If everything goes well, meaning that I do hop on a plane in Manaus and not get stranded there, I will be in Rio de Janeiro for New Year’s Eve this year! With a hostel only a few blocks away for Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, I’m super excited! Here are the top 5 places to party for New Year’s Eve in Rio… let’s welcome 2010!
Note that 1 Canadian Dollar is equal to 1.6 Brazilian Real.
1. Museu de Arte Moderna- http://www.reveilloncidademaravilhosa.com.br/: Oh yes, this is a New Year’s Eve party in the Museum of Modern Arts in Rio! As most other South American parties, it’s always cheaper for women than men. The cost of this party is R$290 for women and R$340 for men. That price includes all you can eat buffet and all you can drink bar.
2. IATE Club- http://www.reveillondoiate.com.br/: Seems to be a cool loungy ambiance by a pool deck. It’s also an all you can eat and drink concept. It’s R$390 for women and men.
3. Reveillon Carioca- http://www.reveilloncarioca.com.br/: Another great place to party to welcome to New Year. It’s R$450 for women and R$500 for men. It includes a buffet and open bar in the lovely city of Rio.
4.Reveillon da Hipica- http://www.reveillondahipica.com.br/: This club located near one the new 7 wonder’s of the world, has a hall, a restaurant, a balcony and patio! Again, with an all you can eat menu and open bar, women pay R$330 and men pay R$390.
5. Reveillon Planeta Rio- http://www.planetario2010.com.br/: With a countdown to the New Year, this party will take place on a premise in downtown Rio. Women payR$130 and men pay $R150. This one also offers buffet and open bar although it doesn’t seem to be as glamorous as the previous ones. That would probably explain to lower entrance price!
