The Rio Times is an English language publication dedicated to the English speaking foreign community in Rio de Janeiro and Brazil.

While there is no shortage of world, national, and local news sources in Portuguese language in Rio and Brazil, before 2009 there has not been a weekly or daily local news source available in English since The Brazil Herald and Latin American Daily Post (which closed in 1986).

We feel that whether you are in Brazil or Rio de Janeiro for ten days or ten years, it is important to understand the happenings around us. The Rio Times provides news covering politics, business, real estate, sports, entertainment, travel and a nightlife guide.

Beyond keeping up with local events, The Rio Times will also cover issues of specific interest to foreign nationals here. Our mission is to provide the community with local information, and improve their understanding of the Cidade Maravilhosa and Brazil.

We offer the news to our readers for free for three articles per week (or twelve per month) before asking for a small US$5 monthly payment, but mainly survive by advertiser support. Please make sure to give our advertisers the attention they deserve by supporting this service and making it possible.
