Hola! I am Pupi (or Gonzalo). I am a musician and comedian from Argentina, I was working in a very serious company in Buenos Aires as a multimedia designer and teacher, until one day I decided to leave everything and go to live in Rio de Janeiro, I believe that (in my case) 32 years is enough to stop procrastinating dreams and living in this city is one of them. I visited Rio for the first time in 2014 and I fell in love with its streets, its people and everything about its beaches. Today I continue working as a freelancer because I love being able to have my free rats to go to this beautiful city.

Tour description

Are you ready for the adventure?

We will visit the fantastic Pedra do Telegrafo and one of the virgin beaches of Guaratiba.

Guaratiba is a city in the western part of Rio de Janeiro, almost 60 km from Ipanema, hidden in the hills and is an atypical walk for international tourism.


  • The description of the tour says that it is 6 hours but from the beginning of the tour in Guaratiba.
  • Bring a bottle of water (or two), fruit and something to eat. Please note that we will be in the jungle for almost 5 hours.

We will start by taking the metro to Barra da Tijuca, where we will make 3 short bus trips to reach Barra da Guaratiba.

This is where we will begin our walk of almost 1.5 hours through the jungle, until we reach the Pedra do Telégrafo.
There I will help you take as many photos as you want so that your instagram explodes with likes and your mom gets scared!

After being here for a few minutes, we will go down and stop at Perigoso beach, the first virgin beach in Guaratiba. At sunset, I recommend watching the sunset from Barra de Guaratiba and heading back to the city.


  • If you're willing to pay for an Uber, we can too.
  • The description of the tour says that it is 6 hours but from the beginning of the tour in Guaratiba.
  • We are talking about a quasi-private tour, which means that the groups will be up to 5 people and in some cases we will not reach that number.

The suggested payment is + R $ 150

We had an amazing day with Pupi! He was so kind and funny and did entertain us through the whole trip. We did a hike with an amazing view at the top and went to a beautiful beach afterwards. We would definitely recommend this trip!!
