    The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
    and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
    is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
    traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
    everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
    chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
    more live side-by-side. There are options for all
    price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
