Enjoy a cultural and anthropological experience with this jeep tour to Rocinha Favela. Embrace the diversity of Rio de Janeiro, the lifestyle of the favela’s inhabitants and experience the different cultures in Brazil.

Rocinha, which dates back to 1932, takes its name from the custom of its first inhabitants who used to say that the vegetables they cultivated came from their own "shacks" (rocinhas in Portuguese). The term was popularized then given to this large settlement that has grown to form a great community.

With this tour you will visit Rocinha, the largest favela in South America, with approximately 150 thousand inhabitants. You’ll learn about the daily life of the community and visit homes, hospitals and schools. Together with the guide, you’ll walk through small streets and witness local commerces. As well as this, you will visit the School of Samba Acadêmicos da Rocinha and browse the Boiadeiro block, where there is a market selling food and crafts from the northern and northeastern parts of Brazil.

Do not miss the opportunity to experience the dynamics of a favela first-hand. With this tour, you will learn all about Brazil’s large and diverse culture. Book now!
