How Connection Rio saves you over R$260/week on ONE important thing

Something you haven’t budgeted for can seriously impact your trip, and unfortunately almost everybody who comes to Rio has a nasty surprise.

Laundry costs in Rio de Janeiro are sky high. Like, incredibly crazy.

If you stay at a hotel or rent an apartment it will be necessary to use a lavandaria (a laundromat) to wash your clothes and training gear, as you won’t have access to a washer. Few rental apartments in Rio come equipped with this expensive (yet essential) household appliance, and hotels only really cater for short-term guests who will just pack up all their dirty clothes and go home.

The lavandarias in Brazil charge you based on how much your clothes weigh. And we all know, a wet gi can weigh up to 3kgs. The average cost of doing ONE load of washing (gi + towel) at a lavandaria is R$30.

Fresh, clean gis are a must. If you turn up to training in a dirty gi, you won’t be allowed to train.

Guys have been asked to step off the mat because their gi was smelly, which is embarrassing for everyone. Nobody wants to be the smelly gi guy.

If you’re training twice a day, you’re looking at spending R$30-60 EVERY DAY just on washing your clothes. Ouch. That’s R$300 a week! You could buy a lot of acai for that much money.

We’ve said it before, but Connection Rio keeps prices as low as possible so that you can make the most out of your time training BJJ in Rio de Janeiro.

That’s why all of the Connection Rio houses have got coin-operated washing machines. Our commercial-grade washers can take two gis at the same time, and we sell 5 tokens for R$35, meaning one wash costs only R$7, 76% cheaper than at a lavandaria!

When you combine these savings with the low price of our accommodation, it makes sense to stay with Connection Rio!

From training and accommodation to academy visits and special tours, and even small group classes with the best teachers Rio has to offer, Connection Rio offers everything you need for the perfect jiu-jitsu holiday!
