Anyone have a place they liked in Rio - the Ipanema Area specifically- doesn't have to be the cheapest, but realitvley inexpensive...$30 us a night or so?

Guess while I am here, same with Trancoso & Bahia..Obrigada!

first of all, i'm sure you're not a nannie..... your words and approach to requesting information (and other things), from others suggests a more youthful age, maybe late 20's or early 30's.

with regard to your wish for places to stay in rio i would by all means take in whatever information is given by other kind folk, but bear in mind that the world is a small place when so many welcoming people are around and i'm sure you'll find a suitable lovely place. and also always remember, you might just have to share your time and your space with a certain cute (can be discussed), english boy!

see you in a couple of weeks honey! x

Hello Nannie,
Im a 28 yold brazilian and Im from rio. I have no specific suggestions in Ipanema, but with us$ 30 in hands it'll be quite easy to find a nice place being here. I think in Trancoso and Salvador, as well. If I were you I'd try to contact some English courses here that host english speakers... u can make new friends and maybe some money too. Try "Callan" in the WWW.
Just take care about hanging around alone with expensive objects, ok?
People from rio are really friendly and helpfull. Enjoy your Trip!!
