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.
Aren't you tired of not having a decent photo that shows your beauty and that of Rio at the same time? Does your partner or travel companion take out-of-focus and moved photos? Do you want to make your ex envious by showing him how well you are enjoying Brazil? Let's find a photo worthy of your Instagram by Urca!
My name is Pupi Castro, I am an Argentine designer, musician and comedian who during the pandemic made the decision to start fulfilling dreams, one of them: living in Rio de Janeiro.
More than 5 months ago I started accompanying tourists and it is a job that I enjoy and -based on my reviews- people do too.
Almost hidden under the Sugar Loaf is the most beautiful, quiet neighborhood with the best view of the city: Urca.
First, we will meet Botafogo , where we will walk to Vermelha Beach, a beach that until a few years ago was closed by a large fort and now has a privileged view of the great Sugar Loaf, from there we will walk half of the Cláudio Coutinho promenade bordering the coast and at the foot of the hill.
Later, we will return to General Tibúrcio square and start walking to Urca where we will pass by the abandoned Cassino hotel and then by the Igreja Nossa Senhora do Brasil .
At the end of the tour, the best part: the mureta da Urca where as locals, we can share a beer (or some petiscos), from the prettiest spot in the neighborhood, where you can take a beautiful panoramic image of the entire city of Rio, in front of Christ the Redeemer of Corcovado that embraces the entire city.
We are going to have a great time and I promise you an image with many likes on your social networks!
Meeting point: Open in Google Maps
How to find me: We will meet on Pasteur avenue, in front of the blue building of the military school (see map)
