Welcome to Real Man Travel Guides!

This site is for guys looking to hook up with the girls in other countries. In each city I've been to I rate your chance of hooking up along with what to do during the day, where to sleep, and what spots to hit at night. In each country's overview page I also give a description on the girls. For advice on how to pick girls up, take a look at my game tips newsletter, which complements my book Bang.

So You’re Going To Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)


I’ve received a lot of questions from guys going to Rio who want to have sex with a Brazilian girl. Keeping that in mind, here are some tips to achieve that goal:

1. Where to stay? The two main popular beaches are Ipanema and Copacabana. During the day Ipanema’s beach will be packed with beautiful people while Copa’s will be sparsely filled with families and random backpackers. During the night Ipanema’s expensive restaurants will be bustling with patrons while Copa’s shady streets will be more or less dead with the occasional vendor. Ipanema is rich and flashy while Copa is more rugged with a working class character.

If you are going for a short time, lodge in Ipanema, but if you are lucky enough to stay for more than a couple weeks then split your time up. Since most clubs won’t be within walking distance from wherever you stay, it’s hard to make a regretful choice. Personally I liked Copa more because it was gentler on my budget. I took a cheap bus when I wanted to go to Ipanema’s beach.

2. Hostel, hotel, or apartment? If you have the money stay in an apartment. Many hotels are cracking down on bringing back late-night guests, and you’ll be disappointed to find out your expensive hotel won’t let you bring a girl back when she’s begging for sex at 3am in the morning. Here are some sites for apartment rentals:

If you stay at a hostel, all you need is a piece of paper in your jean pocket with the address of an hourly hotel (there’s one in my Rio guide). If you meet a girl who wants your sex, simply show a cab driver the address and take her to the hotel. Since hourly hotels are common in Rio and the practice of going to one is ingrained in the culture, a girl won’t think of it as cheesy or low-class. Hostel links:

3. How much to bring? Brazil’s currency, the real (pronounced hey-ow, believe it or not), is getting quite strong thanks to the weakening dollar. I wouldn’t plan on spending less than $100 a day to sight-see, eat occasionally at decent restaurants, go out drinking at clubs, sleep in a hostel, and buy souvenirs at markets instead of boutiques. Spending can get really out of hand if you don’t watch it, moreso than other South American countries. Yet if you tell a Brazilian that their country is twice as expensive as their neighbor Argentina, they will counter that their life is twice as good. Touché.

4. What to study? After you study what I write about Brazilian girls on my blog, pick up a copy of How To Be A Carioca, a fun book that exposes you to the culture and also acts as a phrase book and dictionary to teach you slang words that will amuse the locals.

If you’re going to stay for a while and have money to blow, get Rio For Partiers. It’s an alternative, expensive guide book that is a more current and edgy version of How To Be A Carioca that zeroes in on the nightlife. It’s a pretty short read but the information is helpful.

The last book I recommend is my book Bang (duh). The Western game I teach translates very well for the many Brazilian girls who speak English (you will notice English schools on every other block). I wish I could say the same for Argentine girls.

5. How to mentally prepare? They key to success and happiness in Rio is approaching during the daytime on the beach and on the street. Girls will be very receptive if you open with an angle asking for some sort of help like directions or the best place to get açaí. Then you can easily transition to normal game after that by asking if she’s going out later.

The reason approaching during the daytime is so important is that Rio’s nightlife is surprisingly not very good. For a population of it’s size there is a limited amount of nightclubs and bars, unlike a city like Buenos Aires which has a club for every 20 people. You can’t sit on your ass all day and then say you’ll do something at night because you may not be able to find a good selection of girls at night. Catch them during the day and be a man about it and strike up conversation. In Ipanema the place to be during the day is by Posto 9 next to the tall coconut tree. You can’t miss it.

6. What if you fail? When all else falls and you can’t get laid to save your life and it’s your last night in Rio, head on over to Help nightclub in Copa (any self-respecting taxi driver knows where it is), pay the $20 or so cover charge to get in and bask in a sea of beautiful Brazilian prostitutes. I’m afraid I cannot give you an estimate since I did not indulge in their services. I also hear there are happy ending massage parlors but I did not notice them while I was there. Good luck!

If you liked this post then I think you'll like Roosh's Brazil Compendium, a 98-page strategy guide designed to help you sleep with Brazilian women in Brazil without paying for it. It contains dozens of moves, lines, tips, and city guides learned after seven months of research in the country, where I dedicated my existence to cracking the code of Brazilian women.

Do they like it? They hardly want anything else! So the key to happiness is to find a girl who is fragrant down there, rather than one who smells like a pissoir.

Most girl enjoy anal sex much more than girls from other countries. They told me it is part of the culture they are brought up in. One thing I found help full when selecting a girl is that during the conversation I state that I never pay for sex so if she is a prostitute she will soon walk away! I found sex with these girls to be highly active and creative with no limits what they do!

actually, hey- ow is right. i speak portuguese, and we pronounce it hey-ow as in portuguese the letter r, depending on the letters in front of it or preceding it, is pronounced like a breathy H. And the letter e, is pronounced more like saying a or ay, rather than ee. so hay-ow is correct pronounciation. Obrigado

Hang out in Copa and that’s what you get; sleezy skanks and prostitutes…. If you think that Rio’s nightlife is bad, it’s because you never left the beach. The last thing I want is my favorite nightclubs flooded with greasy American sex-tourists, so I’ll leave it at this: if you don’t know the places to go, then you don’t need to know the places to go. Stick with your hookers and desperate skanks in Copa, because that’s what you deserve.

Mc21701 – No. Of course, if you’re willing to pay, then sure…. anybody can. But if you expect to be taking home anything other than prostitutes or faveladas hoping to hit the lottery, you’ll be disappointed. Rio women (of any decent class) are very picky. If you are a good looking professional with some culture and charm, then you could do very well in Rio (better than the US, where every 6 thinks she’s a 10. rsrsrs). If you are average looking, out of shape, and not terribly charming, you will be in trouble.

If you are looking for women more easily impressed in Brasil, look farther north, like Fortaleza or Recife. Your chances are better there. Still not good, but better.

When I went to Brazil, I spent one day in Fortaleza. I had lunch at a bar, and the waitress was really beautiful and friendly. She was maybe 22 years old. We got along right away. She agreed to meet me in the lobby of my hotel after she got off work. Then, we went upstairs to my hotel room and I gave her a glass of rum. We had sex for two hours, including anal sex and deepthroat fucking, I managed to cum four times, she coughed up a ton of saliva during the DTF, and she did not charge me anything.

These stupid fucking english guys are funny….saying how its easy to get laid “unless youre a yank.” Brazilians love American….they love all foreigners. They dont discriminate. I have been around the world twice, and the only discrimination that I have seen strongly against Americans is from English and Canadian folk. And that is mostly because they are boring motherfuckers who are jealous. Most English and Canadians are self loathing doushbags.

29 Bill takes it up the Butt
5 years, 11 months ago

Sorry Bill, but outside of Brazil and maybe a couple of other countries, Yanks are indeed very unpopular. It isn’t just the UK and Canada, about 75-80% of the planet absolutely HATES yanks. But just to state some examples; the entire European continent, Mexico, Canada, the Middle East, Northern Africa and most of Central Africa, Australia and half of South-East Asia. I left out some areas I wasn’t shure of, but there’s probaply even more.

Yeah, the planet hates the US, it’s citizens and everything about it. Still though, as long as you don’t overly act like your stereotypical american, you still have a chance. That means don’t go talking very loudly, wearing a fanny pack, shorts a baseball cap and sandals with a moneypouch around your neck, obnoxiously asking do you speak american? (it’s English btw, but I’ve actually heard americans ask this…) and acting like you can do whatever you want just buy waving a couple of your de-valued dollars in the air or your credit card that’s unlikely to be accepted. If you follow these instructions, you still have a somewhat better chance than your fellow mericans.

i’d say in brazil you either gotta have 2 things 2 get laid, charm or money, and thats just the way it is. know how to talk or know how to spend a pretty penny. but unlike north america, if you spend your cash or charm a brazilian girl up she’ll please you to the full extent and will do it willingly and confidently.

I’m in brazil now and am an american of Portuguese decent, so I speak the language. It is as Yaz said, don’t be a jerkoff and you’ll do fine. as for the comments by “bill takes it up the butt” I too have been to many countries and am not met with this “hate” you speak of. You’re just an idiot looking for attention. Mostly I’m met with curiosity about our culture, questions about “is this true, or is that true”. To my fellow “yanks” out there, don’t be the ugly American. Be humble and don’t act like a bigshot. You’re the same as everyone else.

And last, “Bill takes it up the Butt” is showing his true colors, green with envy because he’s jealous that he’s not an American. Probably a bitter Brit with teeth that look loike baked beans…

I’m well travelled myself. I haven’t been to brazil yet. But will mostly likely be there for 2014 FIFA world cup. I’ve been a big fan of their football team and I love their diversity, albeit at a distance.
What I’ve learned from my journeys is that it’s important to learn other peoples’ cultures and respect them. Also life happens only once, make the most of it.

This is pretty funny to read how stupid the average male is – this coming from a male who has been around the world by first backpacking in my early days to living the 5 star lifestyle. Women are women around the world and if you have respect for them, you will get somewhere. If you are a dickhead thinking that flashing your money or wearing your favorite US or UK sports gear will give you the edge just shows you still drag your knuckles on the ground. Women around the world like “gentle-men” and those that carry themselves with confidence rather than arrogance are miles ahead. Judging by some comments here, I would like to thank those that drag their knuckles, for making it very easy for me to meet those beautiful non-working women and get laid. If you need tips you are a loser to begin with and belong in a cave. Treat women like your mother, you idiots.

I have been to 60+ countries so far in this life. My next place to see is the most beautiful country of Brazil.

I am an American as well, and have never, not even once had a problem in any of the places I have been to. The “Yank” haters you see here, well they live in very small bubbles, just like their minds really.

Treat people with respect and you always get it right back. Be an ass, and you will get that ass handed back to you in a bag.

I also have seen with my own eyes some of these “Yank” hating people. Always Male, alone, and the girls they think they own, due to some national pride thing, in the arms of “Yanks”. So when you hear these guys remember to understand their minds are as limited as their abilities. Always willing to enter mental combat unarmed. Sad really, they don’t even know the match has ended before they open their mouths. But as always, very fun to watch. I do worry for them when I see them online and such. Using such technical devices could harm them for life. Choices I guess.

I am not going to Brazil to see girls, my God people, there are girls where ever you go. I want to see Brazil, but yes I must agree the ladies from Brazil are so amazingly beautiful.

The people of Brazil are just fun. Enjoy life, joke around, much like the Portuguese, which of course they have very strong ties too, historically. I loved Portugal, even bought a house there, good people the Portuguese.

Roosh, you site is very good, thank you for the information within.

And yes, I had to look at post 67,”Rayane’s” site, and my goodness she is a Goddess. Her undressed photos were not needed to see this. But that didn’t stop me from looking…:)
