My husband and I are going on a South American cruise at the beginning of January, leaving from Rio and ending in Valparaiso (for Santiago).
Going to be in Rio for three nights (J W Marriott) and Santiago (Renaissance) for two and would appreciate any good restaurant suggestions - really want to try churrascaria for one of the nights in Rio.
Also any pertinent tips for getting the best out of both cities. We do have a guide booked for Rio but will have a little free time to go to the Hippie market in Ipanema as we are there on a Sunday plus a free morning before embarkation.
Any suggestions or ideas/tips/opinions will be greatly appreciated.
Also - please does anyone have a current email address for the J W Marriott in Rio?
