Want to build some muscle outside your gym? Go to Rio de Janeiro Shanty Town and help professional home builders build real homes for families that live in plywood shelters with no running water. This will make you sweat and pant by lifting bricks and mixing cement, building homes with bathrooms and kitchens, and not only by lifting weights in your air-conditioned gym. What a great way to enjoy the views and culture of Rio de Janeiro during a fit travel, right?
Don’t worry about lack of relaxation, though, as you will definitely have ample time to enjoy the scrumptious food served in eateries around the neighborhood. You will also get to enjoy a good glass of wine or a big mug of cold beer at bars around the area.
