A Rio de Janeiro guide book designed by young people for young people
This Rio de Janeiro Travel guideis here to take care of you in Rio de Janeiro, which means not only reminding you to get flip flop sandals and after-sun solution, but also "remedio para desarranjo" (anti-diarhea medicine) and "remedio para ressaca" (hangover medicine)....
Lawrance M. Bernabo- - for - Top 10 reviewer-

This Book and 7 days are all you need to live it up in Rio
"Rio for Partiers is not your parents' travel guide; if you thought all travel guides are boring (hey I thought so too), you haven't checked out this amazing guide book, written for young people by young people. Live music, clubbing, street parties, or just plan chilling: it's all right there

- Darkgenius - - for Top 100 reviewer

Young Hearts Run Free
"At a first glance the price seem high for a 148 page pocket-sized book, but ... these discounts will save you far more than the cost of the book."

Peter D. Harris- - for - Top 50 reviewer

For Shallow Interests, But Promises Great Fun
"This book, more than lavishly illustrated with high quality photos, is an enormously attractive travel guide to hedonistic Rio de Janeiro."

Joe Haschka- - for - Top 100 reviewer-

The Real City that never sleeps!
"This guide also includes a number of places that offer price breaks on various services. One section features a crash-course dictionary with the most useful words and phrases. This is a MUST for the average mono-lingual American tourist.

Michael R. Mathena- - for - Top 100 reviewer-

A classy and Very Thorough Guide to Rio de Janeiro
"... with writer/editor/art director Cristiano Nogueira's multiple talents this is a witty, entertaining, very informative, and indispensably useful guide to discovering the myriad delights of Rio de Janeiro ...". " ... it's an excellent and wonderfully readable seduction to a city that promises about everything you'd want. Highly recommended!".

I just wanted to thank you for a fabulous book. My friends and I returned from Rio about 10 days ago and we had a fabulous time--mostly thanks to your guide. We used it to plan pretty much everything we did, and you're suggestions were hits every time. I'm really looking forward to my next trip to Rio, and hope that it will be soon!
- Samantha Mukundu


Thanks for your book. I found it to be incredibly practical, easy to use, and my guide for good eating. Thanks also for having it delivered on short notice to
my hotel.


Your book was a huge help.
We used it everyday!
- Sheila dos Santos


Hey I wanted to let you know that pretty much everything you wrote about in your book was on point. Every advice you gave from trying the different types of food to advice on which nights to go where for nightlife were money!
- Kyoo


I just came back yesterday morning. Just wanted you to know that your book was extremely helpful! At first my friends who came with me were making fun of me because I treated it like it was the Bible, but then when we had such a great and safe time because of it they stopped!
- Kenya Handy


I received my " Rio for Partiers" today which is brilliant!
- Tom Blackden


LOVED IT!! Also bought Salvador for partiers. I have 2 years of Rio For Partiers now. Mostly because I loaned out the first one and you know how that goes.
- Alex Channey


I found Rio for Partiers to be an excellent guide. It was spot on in terms of where to go on what nights, and it was more useful than the typical Lonely Planet type guides.
- Nick Fedorkiw


Books like these are timeless; should be an easy sell. I haven't read a negative review yet, and I cross-checked multiple travel and/or Rio related websites to look for one before purchasing..
- Michael Boone


I received your book in the mail & I love it already! I've traveled a lot, and I don't think I've seen a better book. I can hardly wait to go!
- Dana Jantz


My friends and I used Rio for Partiers quite a bit, especially for nightlife. We went to a lot of the specials that you suggested throughout the week (each day) and most were a great time. We tried to ingore the Copacabana area for nightlife and focus on Leblon and Impanema, which to us had the best scene. Since I have a girlfriend, and my balls were left back in Pennsylvania, my personal favorite part was the food sections. The graphical pictures gave me an idea of what I would try and the descriptions ehnahced it. I love to try different foods and drinks when I travel and Brazil had a lot to offer. Thanks again for providing us with the book; the way it was written made it easy to read and use. I'll reccommend it to those I come across.
- Seth


Both Rio and Rio for Partiers were wonderful....Rio is simply BEAUTIFUL and so RELAXING......I must say Rio for Partiers made my trip to Rio "P" for PERFECT! THANKS!!!!
- Vaughn Gallacher


I purchased the very first edition and since have stuck with your book over any and all other alternatives. It's a perfect travel companion.
- Jake Hefner

Your book is extremely helpful - it's much better than other tour books as it takes us to where Cariocas hang
out for good time.
- Johnson Ho


Thanks so much for the 2005 version! Can't wait to go - your book is awesome :) the rfp partner thing is great, I'm going to try some ofyour recommended activities!
- Esther Marin


Your book is excellent. I think it's the best travel book I've ever seen for someone under the age of 35. So many of the other travel books are geared to the older crowd. Your book is perfect for someone who enjoys making the most of their vacation. From water sports to don't miss local fruits and everything in don't leave anything out.
- Jake Hefner


The book is very helpfull - excellent !!.
- Volker Altstaed


Just returned to the US... Your book and suggestions were extremely helpful throughout the week!!! We had an incredible time. Loved Rio.

A tip from a professional travel writer


"Winging it" in a large city like Rio doesn`t work.

Attractions are a far apart. There is lots of crud amongst the jewels.

If you use the "let`s check it out, if it sucks, we'll go somewhere else" attitude, I am sorry to say, you are bound to spend tons on cabbing your way around town.

Or you might just give up, as showing up to a club on a dead night can trigger conflict with your travel mates, and put people off.

The problem with the free online travel guides

Sure, there are plenty of free travel guides on the web. The problem with most of them are:

  1. They are tend to be short, covering the basics that all the others cover.
  2. They are out-dated.
  3. There are tons of them... who has the time to read and sift through them all?

What a published, robust travel guide like Rio For Partiers offers is a cohesive sequence of tips and suggestions on where to go from the beginning of your trip to the end.

One north, so you won`t get lost.

One clock, so you know what time it is.


Rio For Partiers is what I have focused the last 10 years of my life on.

And more important than making a living as an author, is knowing that my readers are returning home thinking "Best trip EVER!"
