The Girl From Ipanema…

Welcome to this week’s episode of Low Season Traveller Insider Guides.

This week we’re in Rio de Janeiro to learn more about the city, the cariocas and the low season experience.

In this episode, I caught up with the charming Juliana Girao, who works at the Sol Ipanema Hotel which is superbly located right in the heart of Ipanema Beach.   

Juliana was born and raised in Ipanema and we think you’ll agree that she is the perfect guest to help us to learn more about this amazing city by the beach.

This episode was recorded at the Sol Ipanema, overlooking Ipanema Beach just as the sun was setting…oh how I would love to be back there…

Huge thanks to Juliana for joining us for this episode and please do take a look at her fabulously located property at

The rooftop pool and bar provide possibly some of the finest views of Rio you will ever see!

Do join us next week where we’ll be bringing you to the famous Copacabana Beach for our roundup of low season Rio.

But until then, please do check out our live broadcasts on Facebook and Instagram so you can see for yourself what the low season experience is like in Rio.

That’s our show for this week. thanks as always, for your company, Have a great week wherever you are, stay healthy, stay safe, keep your travel dreams alive and don’t forget to share this podcast with your friends, family and social networks.
