Homestay in Rio de Janeiro

Our Homestay accommodation option offers you the opportunity to live with local Brazilian families. ‘Homestay’ enables you to practise your Portuguese in an authentic Brazilian environment and fully experience the life and culture in Rio de Janeiro.

We started our homestay programme in 2009 as we noticed that students hardly interacted with local Brazilians - or "Cariocas", as they are known in Rio - and therefore did not practise Portuguese outside the Caminhos Language Centre. Over the years, Caminhos has carefully selected Brazilian hosts who like to receive a foreign student in their home and who enjoy speaking with their homestay student in Portuguese, answering any questions the student may have about life in Rio de Janeiro. Brazilian homestay families range from a single person to an entire family with up to three children. With all homestay families you will be offered a private bedroom, towels, sheets and breakfast. It goes without saying that this accommodation option requires homestay students to respect their host’s home and to adjust to Brazilian culture and customs. If you are looking for the real Brazilian experience, want to practise your Portuguese every day and are open to experiencing a different culture in a home/family setting we highly recommend you to choose our Homestay accommodation option.

Homestay Beach or Suburb?

Caminhos offers you the option to choose between living near the beach or living in a suburb. We believe that the location does not affect your Brazilian homestay experience: the only differences are price and the distance to the school. Homestay Beach accommodations are located in the richer beach areas of Ipanema and Copacabana, close to the school. Our Homestay Suburb accommodations are cheaper, but somewhat further away. However, they are no more than 30 minutes by Metro from the school.

 

How does Homestay work?

Once you have booked your course and chosen your preferred Homestay option (‘Beach’ or ‘Suburb’) our Caminhos team will start searching for a suitable Brazilian family that matches your profile. Our team will then make the reservation with the homestay family for the period you have specified. You will be informed by e-mail when the Homestay reservation has been confirmed, and you will be provided with all the details you need.
