We are gonna be in Rio de Janeiro for the carnival, and then go west to Bolivia and Paraguay for 2 months before heading back to Rio to catch our flight back home to Europe.
Question: does anybody know anything about luggage storage facilities in Rio? What would it cost to store a small backpack (or similar) for two months? Where can we do it? Hostels? And how much should we expect to pay for it?
Any help would be highly appreciated!
Check out Mellow Yellow Hostel in Copacobana. I dont know if they will store luggage for you, but they are extremely helpful and could probably point you in the right direction. It's run by an English guy and they have great facilities there for travellers.
I bet they could give you some advice.
You're going back to South America!
No, unfortunately, I'm not going back, not this year at least... I posted this question last year but didn't get any answers, but it all turned out just fine, we found a really good hostel where we stayed during carnival 2006. They let us store our luggage for free for two months, while travelling Paraguay and Bolivia. But thanks for the advice, Evelyn! How is NZ treating you?
