This is where we go to for all our ice cream / gelato needs! Their Leblon branch is located two blocks from the beach and close by the shopping area on the Ataulfo de Paiva and Afranio de Melo Franco intersection. It is not a café with a proper sitting area, but rather a gelato counter. But do not fool... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
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 draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
