At the Club in Rio de Janeiro we're guests of the bowls section, but have full use of all the facilities. This includes; swimming pool, sauna, gymnasium, billiard room, restaurants and bars, tennis courts, cards room, TV room, and family gardens. It's an oasis in the centre of Rio, and located in one of the most upmarket districts of the city. We will play bowls at the weekends and there is an opportunity to play on Thursday mornings and maybe some evenings under floodlights. But Rio is such a great holiday destination, you won't want to spend all your time on the green. So, we'll take a city tour to include Christ Statue and Sugar Loaf mountain, and we'll also make time to visit world famous beaches at Copacabana and Ipanema. Optional tours are likely to include a football

 



game at the Maracana stadium, or racing at the Jockey Club. We'll use a variety of different restaurants including magnificent barbecues, and 'pay-by-weight' buffets.
You can samba the night away with the locals or relax in the bar at the club til it closes at 2am. We can also take a trip to Petropolis (imperial city of Brazil), a boat trip around Guanabara Bay, or out to the tropical islands from Itacuruca, or the beaches of Buzios, and since Rio is home to the world's largest urban forest (Tijuca), we're only a short ride away from mountains, and trees and tamarind monkeys.
