Rochina is thought to be the biggest slum in Latin America, with a population of around 180,000 and where the contrast between the magnificent view and the extreme poverty conditions is tremendous. This jeep tour will show you the living conditions of the community and the most important social places, including the nursery, some schools, the local samba school and the commercial areas of the favela.
