    I will be in Rio during the entire month of April, training. Flights booked. I have sent numerous messages to ConnectionRio, inquiring about housing and so forth. I have noticed that there does not seem to be any confirmation message/notice upon submission of a message on their website. As all 3 of my emails over the last 3 weeks were ignored, I assume that there is some issue with their website. Do any of you know of a contact email which I could use for a direct inquiry?

    Any other tips would also be suggested. Thank you.

    Also, could any of you can suggest another place where I could search for a condo to rent? I'm basically looking for a one month furnished rental in Barra da Tijuca, within reasonable walking distance of Gordo's academy.

    Their facebook. If you're looking to train at Gordo's, honestly don't try to find your own place. Especially if you don't speak Portuguese. The group at CR is fun (I stole their internet all the time and made friends in the process) and many have been there multiple times and can teach you how to get around/ride buses/go out with (something I never had and figured out on my own--almost got me in some dangerous situations). Definitely a good spot for your first trip to Brazil.
