It has some really nice parks, and really nice views, but any where you walk smells like pee. Near the beach it is very nice, two blocks back it is not so pretty, it feels like very local. Not many places to go out at...More

Flamengo is a seaside district in Rio. The Flamengo beach is decent, quiet and more peaceful than the popular destinations. There is a nice park (Aterro de Flamengo) that offers good outdoor activities & a nice jogging track. Worth a visit.

A far cry from the popular, though god knows why, Copacabana and Ipanema districts. I live in Flamengo and appreciate it's history, it's mix of old and new, though thankfully there is a lot more old than new. Few tourists visit Flamengo, it is not...More

Hola, mi inquietud es saber si la zona de Flamengo en Río, es segura, ya que estoy por ir para año nuevo con mis hermanos y ellos decidieron parar allí. He escuchado comentarios de que es una zona bastante insegura, la verdad que no tengo idea. Muchas gracias a los posibles respondedores, jaja. Saludos.
