Richard, not sure if you've left yet but there's some good advice on www.tripadvisor.com.

On our way, day 6 in the Atlantic, but will have another look. The best news is that we are in port till 22.00 so will be able to hit at least one Tango club in Ipanema. Thank you most kindly.

We join the ship in Ft Lauderdale so the waiting time at the moment is being spent trawling the web or re-packing the packing! I think we'll try and make our own way round during the day in Rio so maybe able to fit in a Tango club if all goes well. Who knows we may meet up All the best John.

There are so many fabulous places to visit in Rio that you would need some time to see them all. In addition, if you really want to see something very special you can fly form Rio (or Montevideo) to see the Iguazu Falls. They are something any traveller should visit when in that part of South America for they are awe inspiring. as Mr. Okill says you must do your homework before you visit.

Hello Richard. I hope that whatever you choose to do in Rio that the cloud clears so you can enjoy the glorious views of the city. We were fortunate to choose an afternoon tour to Christ the Redeemer statue, having avoided the early cloud cover other tours had been subjected to. Whatever, you'll have a brilliant time. Regards, Patricia.
