What an amazing experience to be able to live with locals, and be surrounded by locals in Brazils largest favela. We felt totally safe! Obi and his mom are awesome, definiatly take Obi's favela walking tour, and the two brothers hike!! The views are some of the best in the world!


Loved it!!! I wish we stayed longer. Once inside it honestly felt homey. Obi and his mom were amazing! Mama felt like our own mom taking care of us The view from the balcony was phenomenal! Obi actually works as a tour guide but we missed his tour since we had to go to the sugarloaf that day. he offered a small private tour for us instead. He was so knowledgeable and humble. Only downside was the shower, hot water for 4 mins. other than that it was fantastic!!
