Neyla arrived on time so it was off well before most tourists were even having breakfast, which was good as I had expressed a whole load of places that I wished to visit, yet Neyla found even more. Great. Although the price for this full on day was a bit pricey, as it was just me travelling, it soon became... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
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.
