Why Book Your Rio de Janeiro Vacation with NLS – New Lifestyle Secrets?

Doing It On Your Own

  • For one, it takes a lot of research and planning to organize an experience like this.
  • Those of you that have never traveled to this part of the world and do not know the lay of the land, there would be a lot of wasted time trying to figure out where to stay, what to do first and coordinate your excursions.
  • Not speaking the language (Portuguese) and not having trusted insider guides to help with getting you to all the locations without delays or getting lost can be a big time waster.
  • At night, Rio de Janeiro is another animal and it's BIG. By not having insider access with NLS taking you to the best places in Rio, you would just wander, get lost, not be treated as a VIP and miss out.
  • You would not see many off-the-grid locations or make it to Buzios.
  • The best secrets of Rio de Janeiro are only found by living there. Organizing a retreat like the ones we offer on your own are just not possible. It would be a daunting effort, it would take you a bunch of time trying to figure it out and it surely would not be the insider's experience.

That's where we come in.

  • Not only do we arrange your proper flights, the accommodations and excursions throughout your stay with us, we start off by picking you up at your front door with a private driver.

  • As our client, you are a VIP, not just another tourist. Once you arrive to Rio de Janeiro airport, we will have a driver waiting for you. No flagging a taxi or riding the crowded airport bus.

  • You will be given a local cell phone to use during your stay, so you can call us anytime for any reason.

  • We welcome you with an orientation dinner at one of the finest Churrascarias in Rio (Brazilian BBQ restaurant)
  • NLS (New Lifestyle Secrets) will take you to locations that only the locals know about.

  • We will introduce you to some of the warmest, happiest, most beautiful on the planet, Cariocas (people of Rio de Janeiro). We give you an insider's experience at what it's like to live the Carioca life. "A vida boa!" – The good life!

  • You will come back from Rio de Janeiro with an amazing experience and new relationships that you would not have been able to imagine before.

  • You will be refreshed and super motivated to do whatever you have got to do in your business and or personal life to go on another NLS retreat!

Business Retreats

We can also arrange a business group retreat. A great idea for creating a bonding experience with your preferred clients. Reward your associates with a bonus retreat and or schedule a mastermind group getaway with other business professionals.

There is nothing in the world that creates this kind of rapport, taking relationships to the next level. Bridging extraordinary  and unforgettable retreat experiences with like minded business professionals helps manifest elegant ideas, creates partnerships, generates new business and builds life long friendships.

We will show you the best of Rio de Janeiro and Buzios! This retreat has everything you want and it is an "all you can eat" experience, if you know what I mean! 😉 Beaches, bikinis, meeting and hanging with beautiful locals, surfing, hang-gliding, night clubs, samba, restaurants and more! You will have the time of your life!

We do take initial down payments on these trips and can work out a payment plan, contact us to make arrangements. Because we'll be raving in Rio during the peak season, hotels in this area are in greatest demand. Their rates reflect the demand and they sell out quickly. Most have a minimum stay requirement of 3 to 6 nights and enforce stiff payment policies and cancellation penalties. Therefore we need a 50% payment up front and no later than September 30th for this special event. Complete payment is required by November 15th.

In general: hotels in Rio require 100% per person non-refundable payment to confirm space for the peak months. Policy may vary depending on which hotel we get into and when the reservations are confirmed. So the quicker you pay off this trip, the better place we will be able to reserve and book for you.
