Rio De Janeiro
by: Jade Moyano
Me & my man.
Cloudy but HOT. 105 degrees in Rio, normal.
Rio isn’t all palm trees and pretty people. The hotel is situated right near a favela. This one is occupied by the police and deemed safe. A total trip to go up there and hang with locals.
Unexpected surprise, rooftop to ourselves.
Cute, private garden area.
Cozy lobby/common living room. Lovely design pieces throughout.
If you choose to dine here you can, but the staff will bring your meal to wherever you are in the property.
Proper beach day in Ipanema. Footie included.
The 10 minutes of sun we got that day! The plants were happy.
Highs + Lows
The views and location. Casa Mosquito is a refurbished 1940s home, so its feels very authentic and homey.
Roof deck pool area can't be beat. Its elevated position puts it high above the chaos of the city streets.
Multiple common areas throughout the property. Lots of hidden nooks and crannies for lounging and relaxing.
Lush greenery and jungle-like feel.
Rooms have porches overlooking the city, perfect for soaking up the Rio vibe.
Standard rooms are small, NY style.

Tropical, cool, and sophisticated.
Great, located on a quiet residential street on top of Ipanema near the Cantagalo community. The house is just up the hill from the main streets. Amazing views!
The sounds of nature!
