#GetOutThere Guide: Rio de Janeiro


August 05, 2017

Sun, Samba, surf, Caipirinhas, Carnival, Copacabana, bikinis, beach, football, Havaianas, sophisticated beach city, amazing landscapes, and a massive urban forest are just a few of the wonderful things that come to mind when you think about Rio de Janiero.  This city is amazing to visit anytime.  And now- starting today - it's hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics.

MI OLA Brand Ambassador Ashley Averill(@theviewfrom6ft), visited Brazil for Carnival earlier this year.  Here is her scoop on Rio and its outdoor adventures  just in time for the opening ceremony of the 2016 summer games. If you are in Rio for the Olympics, or just planning a trip anytime, check out our #GetOutThere Guide to Rio de Janeiro.

#GetOutThere Guide: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Ashley grew up in the beach town of Clearwater, Florida with a love of all things water-related and shopping. She now lives in Texas working as an engineer and takes every opportunity she gets to travel, with her most recent adventure to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Rio de Janeiro sits on the Atlantic coast of Brazil and is the country’s second-largest city. The city is home to over 6 million locals, known as "Cariocas". The year-round temperature averages  70-80 Fahrenheit, which means you can grab an Uber (equipped with a surfboard rack) and head the beach, hike from the city streets up to rain forest covered mountains, or if you dare, get a running start and jump off these same mountains to hang glide.

Hike:

While New York has Central Park, Rio has Tijuca National Park. Framing the city opposite of the Atlantic Ocean, this urban rain forest is home to miles of trails, waterfalls, monkeys, and most famously, the Christ the Redeemer statue. Most visitors get to Christ the Redeemer by train or bus, but MI OLA girls believe hiking beats hours spent waiting on transportation.

To find the trail head, enter the forest behind the old mansion at Parque Lage, a property owned by the city’s botanical gardens, and follow signs to Corcovado, the name of the mountain the famous statue sits on (translates to “Hunchback”). Most of the 6km uphill hike is a natural staircase formed from tree roots. There is one scramble up a rock face, and the final stretch of hike is along the road. There are many online blog posts and guides for the hike, but it definitely is worth a Google search and a read to ensure you know where you are going.

As always, please go with friends, and let others know of your planned hike.

Paraglide and Hang Glide:

Farther south in the park, the lush peak of Pedro Bonita (literally “beatific rock”) offers year round paragliding and hang gliding! Both involve trustfully running off a cliff strapped to a tandem master.  Paragliding uses a soft parasail with the flyers in a seated position, while hang gliding uses a triangle-shaped wing supported by a rigid frame with the flyers in a horizontal position. Paragliding can offer longer flight times for heavier passengers, but doesn’t get as close to the “I’m a bird” feeling as hang gliding.

To take part in either, head to Voo Livre in the Sao Conrado neighborhood. At the end of the road on the right-hand side there is a small hut that’s crowded with people early in the day. You’ll know it’s the right place if the sky above is speckled with the small multicolored silhouettes of the other flyers. In the small hut a demo video plays on loop to get future flyer’s adrenaline going and their hands reaching for their Brazilian Reals (currency in Brazil) - cash payments will get a better deal.

Before each flight there’s some quick paperwork to fill out. It helps to have your passport number and an introduction to your tandem master. Before ever getting to the beach hut in Sao Conrado, most tourists are offered a hang gliding or paragliding excursion from hotels or friendly Cariocas on the street. It is advised to avoid these offers, booking through these middle-men takes more time, costs more money, and most aren’t official tourist bookers, but rather locals who leverage speaking English and Portuguese to earn a profit.

Go early in the day. Each tandem master has a limited number of flights they are permitted to do a day. After lunch many of the guides will have already exhausted their flights.

Hop in the car with your tandem master behind the wheel and the wings or parasail in the back.  You'll get a quick briefing during the drive into the forest. Once on top of Pedro Bonita, you’ll meet the other flyers and tandem masters. Each flyer/tandem master pair practices running in sync for take-off a few times, making sure to maintain speed and not look down. Once confident with your running off a cliff skills it’s time to get strapped into the paraglider/hang glider and wait for the right wind.



While you might be nervous, rest assured.  The tandem masters do this a few times a day, every day.  Many of them compete or hold records in the sport.  So trust them. For instance, my tandem master held the South American record for longest flight time- 8.5 hrs! Our flight was breathtaking, but much shorter at around 5 minutes.  (Flight time can vary a lot depending on weight and wind conditions.) The flight offered bird’s-eye views of Christ the Redeemer in the distance, the clear teal ocean, and Rio’s many neighborhoods below. The flights land at Pepino Beach, not far from the hut where flyers fill out paperwork.

The key to landing is the same as take-off: run as fast possible and look straight ahead. Try to avoid tripping and face planting into to the sand as I did!

Beach:

Once you're back at the beach, swim or paddle out to cool off and then dry off on the sand! To blend in don’t bring a towel to the beach as Cariocas either sit on sarongs, rent chairs along the beach, or just enjoy sandy cheeks. In Rio, the less bikini the better - pack your MI OLA Casita Boythong or Thong Tha Thong and you will fit right in!

Drink:

As you sit on the beach, a wandering Caipirinha salesman will pass. Buy one! The Caipirinha is made out of Cachaça (similar to rum), limes and sugar. It is the national cocktail of Brazil and a perfect anytime drink, but is especially good freshly muddled under the hot sun. All sorts of flavors of Cachaça and Caipirinhas can be found all around Rio, with the most memorable flavor being Cachaça de Jambu. Jambu is a Brazilian leafy green herb that causes the tongue and throat to tingle and go numb. Taking a shot Cachaça de Jambu had my life flashing before my eyes way more than hang-gliding did.

Eat:

Most mornings in Brazil begin with an acai smoothie from a local juice shop. (Acai is a small red-purple berry from a palm which is high in antioxidants and is said to boost energy- beyond being flat out delicious.) Almost every street has a small open aired juice shop, with a few stools along the counter and pile of fresh fruit behind the counter. Common tropical fruits such as mango, papaya, guava are offered, as well as amazonian fruits such as cashew fruit, guarana, pitanga and the most famous, acai. Grab and go pasteis (fried meat and cheese-filled pockets) and Pao de Queijo (cheese bread) will also tempt you from the glass display boxes at the juice shops. For more sustainable food to fuel adventures, look for flavorful stews, hearty rice and beans (black beans and rice, or Feijao, is a Brazilian staple), and authentic sushi (Brazil has more Japanese immigrants than any other country).

Where to Stay:

The best places to stay in town are along the beach. In particular, Ipanema blends tourists, trendy locals, and the LGTB party crowd. It offers options from hostels to luxury hotels. Bonus points to any lodging in the east side of Ipanema that is positioned walking distance to the General Osório subway station.

Copacabana is a good plan B, although it has become more commercially touristy. While in town check out the slightly inland neighborhoods of Botafogo for brunch, Santa Teresa for an art gallery walk, and Lapa for nightlife.

The business focused Centero, the true downtown of Rio, doesn’t offer much for tourists. It is best to avoid on weekends and nights when it is empty and possibly seedy.

Transportation:

The best tip for getting around Rio de Janerio is Uber. Uber is great because the same app that works at home in the US will work in Rio. The digital interface allows users to enter the destination and have confidence that the driver is going to the right place without putting their Portuguese skills to a test.

Rio even has UberEnglish and UberSurf for those willing to pay a few extra Reals for an English speaking driver or a surfboard rack. When out of Wi-fi range, the city also offers taxis (though not too many taxi drivers speak English so be prepared with a written address), two subway lines and buses (the most cost effective option).

For transportation to Rio the city has two airports: Santos Dumont for domestic connections and Galeao-Antonio Carlos (GRU) for international flights.

Tchau and enjoy your travels MI OLA babes!

“You can’t pour from an empty cup, take care of yourself first.”

As kids, we are taught to be kind to one another, treat each other with respect, have compassion for each other and of course the “golden” rule, but we're not usually taught to show the same kindness to ourselves.  It's important.  Here are some tips to being kinder and caring for yourself.

The Mi Ola Difference

Swimwear for Adventure

Fit Guide | Garment Care | Shipping | Return Policy

Put on any Mi Ola swimsuit and you immediately notice the difference. Each style features slight modifications from a traditional bikini, which result in an impeccable fit that grips your curves and keeps you looking smokin’ hot. Every component has been engineered to enhance, last, and keep you covered:

Fabric

All colors and patterns are fade-resistant and UPF 50+ to protect you from the sun. And this fabric won’t stretch out after hard use, so you don’t have to worry about your swimsuit being unable to keep up with you.

Seams

When we design a suit, we put it through rigorous testing on a variety of people to ensure it’s comfortable and stays on. Every seam has been constructed to withstand wear and to prevent chafing or discomfort.

Cup

Our tops don’t have padding, because padding acts like a sail when you’re in the water – it moves with the water instead of with your body. Instead, we line our tops with the same high quality lycra that’s used on the outside, making them more substantial and less flimsy than other brands.

Labels

We hate labels… and we don’t just mean that in an alternative, anti-establishment way. We know that labels can irritate sensitive skin, so we’ve made it easy for you to remove ours without damaging your suit. Really!

Embellishments

We only use hardware and embellishment in ways that won’t get in your way. If a bottom style has rings, we place them on the side so you won’t bruise your hip bones while surfing. Our metal rings are made out of brass (with no coating or paint that might chip off after you’ve worn it a few times) and are molded to fit your curves for a look and comfort you can’t find anywhere else.

Lining

Every suit is fully lined to ensure that where you’re covered, you’re really covered. With Mi Ola, you don’t just look great in your bikini – you feel secure, too.

Our goal is to make swimwear that fits your life and body so perfectly you’ll never want to go anywhere else. Have feedback? Let us know!



Fit Guide

We’ve designed each suit to hug your curves and give you the freedom you need to move, run, swim, surf, dive, sail...whatever your heart desires. To find your best fitting suit ever, follow these sizing tips:

Tops
Bust Size Mi Ola Size

A S
B M
C / D L

Bottoms
Size           Mi Ola Size

Notes
  • As surfers, we often size down for suits that we’ll be surfing in for the most secure fit
  • Many of our tops have adjustable straps, while all bottoms have adjustable drawstrings, or a grippy elastic in the waistband to keep you secure
  • Check the Fit Notes for each product for specific style guidelines

Tops for a Fuller Bust

Our Selva and BB Pin-Up Tops are designed specifically with D, DD/E, and F cups in mind, featuring more support and coverage for larger busts. Here’s what we recommend:

Bust Size Mi Ola Size
32D / 34C / 36B XS
32E / 32DD / 34D / 36C S
32F / 34DDD / 34E / 36D / 38C M
32G / 34F / 32E / 32DD L
32H / 34G / 32F XL

*The Selva has adjustable straps to fit many rib cage diameters.
*The BB Pin-Up top has a tighter band and larger cups to support larger busts.



Garment Care

Take care of your swimsuit ... so it’s ready for adventure whenever you are

Life’s tough for a swimsuit — sunscreen, salt, oils, chlorine, and heat can all eat away at even the highest quality fabrics. But your Mi Ola bikini was made to keep up with you and designed for long-lasting mermaid perfection. With a little love, it can look smokin’ for years to come. Here's what to do:

Hand-wash after wear

Always wash your suit in cold water after you wear it, even if you didn’t swim. If you’ve got better things to do at the moment than laundry (who doesn’t?), be sure to at least rinse your bikini to get out any body oils, lotion, sunscreen, or other substances that might damage the fabric.

Use gentle detergent made for delicates

Baby shampoo will work, too.

Never machine wash or dry

The agitation and heat can stretch fabric and wear out fibers, changing the fit of your suit.

Lay flat to dry

Don’t wring out your swimsuit and don’t hang it by the straps or ties – this can cause stretching.

Keep it out of the sun when you're not wearing it

UV rays can cause fading.

Put on your sunscreen first

Keep sunscreen, oils, self tanner, and lotions as "away" from the suit as you can. That means putting on your sunscreen and letting it dry before putting on your suit. Re-apply with care!

Put something between your suit and rough surfaces

Cement and stone can snag your suit, pulling threads and wearing fabric. Use a towel or sarong as a layer of protection.

Give your swimsuit time to rest

Mi Ola swimsuits are 17% Spandex, a memory fabric that can snap back given time to dry and recover. If you’re wearing your swimsuit regularly, alternate between suits to give each one a break and avoid stretching them out.

Be wary of hot tubs

Hot tubs have both high chlorine levels and high temps, a lethal combo for swimsuits. It’s best to reserve hot tubs for suits you don’t mind fading or wearing down.

We want you to have your Mi Ola suit until you’re tired of it. The best way for that to happen is to take good care of it before and after you #getoutthere. Happy adventuring!

The Mi Ola Difference

Swimwear for Adventure

Fit Guide | Garment Care | Shipping | Return Policy

Put on any Mi Ola swimsuit and you immediately notice the difference. Each style features slight modifications from a traditional bikini, which result in an impeccable fit that grips your curves and keeps you looking smokin’ hot. Every component has been engineered to enhance, last, and keep you covered:

Fabric

All colors and patterns are fade-resistant and UPF 50+ to protect you from the sun. And this fabric won’t stretch out after hard use, so you don’t have to worry about your swimsuit being unable to keep up with you.

Seams

When we design a suit, we put it through rigorous testing on a variety of people to ensure it’s comfortable and stays on. Every seam has been constructed to withstand wear and to prevent chafing or discomfort.

Cup

Our tops don’t have padding, because padding acts like a sail when you’re in the water – it moves with the water instead of with your body. Instead, we line our tops with the same high quality lycra that’s used on the outside, making them more substantial and less flimsy than other brands.

Labels

We hate labels… and we don’t just mean that in an alternative, anti-establishment way. We know that labels can irritate sensitive skin, so we’ve made it easy for you to remove ours without damaging your suit. Really!

Embellishments

We only use hardware and embellishment in ways that won’t get in your way. If a bottom style has rings, we place them on the side so you won’t bruise your hip bones while surfing. Our metal rings are made out of brass (with no coating or paint that might chip off after you’ve worn it a few times) and are molded to fit your curves for a look and comfort you can’t find anywhere else.

Lining

Every suit is fully lined to ensure that where you’re covered, you’re really covered. With Mi Ola, you don’t just look great in your bikini – you feel secure, too.

Our goal is to make swimwear that fits your life and body so perfectly you’ll never want to go anywhere else. Have feedback? Let us know!



Fit Guide

We’ve designed each suit to hug your curves and give you the freedom you need to move, run, swim, surf, dive, sail...whatever your heart desires. To find your best fitting suit ever, follow these sizing tips:

Tops
Bust Size Mi Ola Size
AA XS
A S
B M
C / D L

Bottoms
Size           Mi Ola Size
0 / 2 XS
2 / 4 S
6 / 8 M
10 / 12 L
Notes
  • As surfers, we often size down for suits that we’ll be surfing in for the most secure fit
  • Many of our tops have adjustable straps, while all bottoms have adjustable drawstrings, or a grippy elastic in the waistband to keep you secure
  • Check the Fit Notes for each product for specific style guidelines

Tops for a Fuller Bust

Our Selva and BB Pin-Up Tops are designed specifically with D, DD/E, and F cups in mind, featuring more support and coverage for larger busts. Here’s what we recommend:

Bust Size Mi Ola Size
32D / 34C / 36B XS
32E / 32DD / 34D / 36C S
32F / 34DDD / 34E / 36D / 38C M
32G / 34F / 32E / 32DD L
32H / 34G / 32F XL

*The Selva has adjustable straps to fit many rib cage diameters.
*The BB Pin-Up top has a tighter band and larger cups to support larger busts.



Garment Care

Take care of your swimsuit ... so it’s ready for adventure whenever you are

Life’s tough for a swimsuit — sunscreen, salt, oils, chlorine, and heat can all eat away at even the highest quality fabrics. But your Mi Ola bikini was made to keep up with you and designed for long-lasting mermaid perfection. With a little love, it can look smokin’ for years to come. Here's what to do:

Hand-wash after wear

Always wash your suit in cold water after you wear it, even if you didn’t swim. If you’ve got better things to do at the moment than laundry (who doesn’t?), be sure to at least rinse your bikini to get out any body oils, lotion, sunscreen, or other substances that might damage the fabric.

Use gentle detergent made for delicates

Baby shampoo will work, too.

Never machine wash or dry

The agitation and heat can stretch fabric and wear out fibers, changing the fit of your suit.

Lay flat to dry

Don’t wring out your swimsuit and don’t hang it by the straps or ties – this can cause stretching.

Keep it out of the sun when you're not wearing it

UV rays can cause fading.

Put on your sunscreen first

Keep sunscreen, oils, self tanner, and lotions as "away" from the suit as you can. That means putting on your sunscreen and letting it dry before putting on your suit. Re-apply with care!

Put something between your suit and rough surfaces

Cement and stone can snag your suit, pulling threads and wearing fabric. Use a towel or sarong as a layer of protection.

Give your swimsuit time to rest

Mi Ola swimsuits are 17% Spandex, a memory fabric that can snap back given time to dry and recover. If you’re wearing your swimsuit regularly, alternate between suits to give each one a break and avoid stretching them out.

Be wary of hot tubs

Hot tubs have both high chlorine levels and high temps, a lethal combo for swimsuits. It’s best to reserve hot tubs for suits you don’t mind fading or wearing down.

We want you to have your Mi Ola suit until you’re tired of it. The best way for that to happen is to take good care of it before and after you #getoutthere. Happy adventuring!
