Our family trip started off in Santiago, Chile, where we ventured off into some beautiful places.

Sky Costanera:
The tallest building in Latin America at 300 meters tall. At the very top of the tower you can get the most impressive 360 degree view of Santiago.

Ending off our Chile trip with some delicious Chilean Empanadas, and then heading off to Sao Paulo, Brazil to see some family and friends.

Paulista Street in Sao Paulo is closed on a Sunday for a few hours. It’s a great place to go hang out, eat some street food, and browse all of the street vendors.

Nuestra Paleta, Santo Andre
A dessert cafe that my cousin took us to that specialize in popsicle sticks of all different flavors. The dessert we had was delicious, I highly recommend going if you’re ever in the area.

The family and I made a pit stop in Rio de Janeiro for a couple of days.

Copacabana beach was just as incredible as everyone says it is, although the weather was just a little too cold for me to go in. Our hotel was right in between Copabana beach and Ipanema beach, we didn’t however make it to Ipanema beach.

Christ The Redeemer was one of the first tourist stop we went to, and it was amazing! It is a statue of Jesus Christ overlooking Rio de Janeiro. It’s located at the peak of the 700 meters Corcovado moutain in the Tijuca forest national park. Also listed as one of the New 7 Wonders of the World.

Sugar Loaf Mountain
Another peak in Rio at the mouth of Guanabara Bay on a peninsula that extends out to the Atlantic Ocean, at 396 meters above the harbor. The view of Rio from the Sugar Loaf Mountain is unreal. There is also a little restaurant at the top that has some great food and a view to die for.

Telegraph Rock, Rio
A very famous hiking trail because of one of the rocks at the top. The hike itself takes about an hour. My family and I however took about 2hrs because my little sister decided that wearing flip flops to a hike would be a good idea. The view is stunning and a great place to relax and take it all in.

Garota de Ipanema Restaurant
The pub where Tom and Vinicius wrote the famous jazz song Garota de Ipanema. A nice bar/restaurant with lots of memorabilia of the event. Amazing picanha and great atmosphere.
