The final question of the survey: Any recommendations or words of wisdom for future guests?
My Bridesmaid & her Boyfriend: Oh this is simple.....GO TO RIO!
My Mother-in-law: Perhaps to learn a few extra Portuguese words to help with their travels.Thank you so very much, Mr. DRL, DRL, and our grandbaby, for a wonderful holiday!
Engaged Couple Friends: Try to avoid the Citibank bank machines - we paid a fortune there - they convert your withdrawal into USD first and then into Canadian. We did better at HSBC and even at a bank machine we had never heard of before in Buzios. And, buy stronger sunscreen then you would normally use. I don't know if its the closeness to the equator, but we burned way more than we do somewhere like Mexico, on a comparably hot day.
My Dad: Take some time to review the language, simple words/sentences. Bring along a dictionary and sunscreen. Make sure you do your share and more as the parents to be will need the extra sleep. Can you believe how much company they are having???? Crazyyyyyyyyyyy!!
