Tourist make sure you stay near Ipanema Beach, one can also look alternative to stay at Coppacabana. Beaches safe // walkers delight. Kids/ even adults can cycle for rent as low as 10 real a month.

Ipanema is smaller than Copacabana and has slightly higher class shopping opportunities. Getting there can be maddening depending on the traffic conditions, but still you gotta see it when in Rio. The Girl from Ipanema is there, she's just aged a few decades! Beautiful beach...More
