Favela do Vidi­gal.

LUXE City Guides - Rio de Janeiro - - Activities -

The vast ma­jor­ity of Rio’s shanties are not safe to visit, but a few of the ‘paci­fied’ fave­las are open to out­side vis­i­tors with­out much fuss – Vidi­gal is the city’s most ac­ces­si­ble, and best ex­plored with a lo­cal. Felipe Paiva from In­side Out­ings / in­sid­e­out­ings.com / is a cluedin, English-speak­ing res­i­dent and pho­tog­ra­pher, and will whisk you up the ser­pen­tine streets by foot or van. On a nice day, opt to com­bine with a hike up Dois Ir­mãos hill for a mil­lion-dol­lar Ipanema panorama (and no tourists). Call Felipe on 97425 0660 or email paivafo­tografias@gmail.com / have your taxi drop you at the Vidi­gal en­trance / leave bling at home
