Easter Weekend in Rio

Hi friends!  How was your Easter?  We had a fabulous time visiting Rio de Janeiro.  It was my second time there and it was so much better than the first (when it was rainy and cold)!

We stayed at the Sheraton, which is one of the best Sheratons I have ever stayed at.  It is definitely a resort with a beautiful beach and pool.

Cooper had a blast with his first time in the pool with us!

And of course, we had to check out some of the famous sites.  We went up to see Christ the Redeemer, which was so cool!

We also went up Pao de Acucar (Sugarloaf), which has amazing views of the entire city, including Christ the Redeemer and Copacabana Beach.

One of the best parts of the entire trip was taking my mom up in a helicopter ride over the city.  The views were spectacular!

Of course there was plenty of good food and drink to be had by all!  Like fresh aqua de coco (no alcohol!).

And caipirinhas, the official drink of Brazil (confession–mine was a caiprifruita with no alcohol).

We also visited the famed Copacabana Palace hotel on Copacabana Beach to eat at Ciprianis.

We also ate at this amazing Brazilian restaurant that is set up on the hills like a tree house and serves dishes made with local Brazilian ingredients.  It was incredible!

Luckily we did manage to work off some of our amazing meals with a few rounds of tennis!

Overall it was a perfect Easter weekend!

Readers, have you ever been to Rio?  Have you tried fresh aqua de coco?
