Great walking along this sea front. Nice sand and beach. Lots of action and you feel very safe here even late at night as good lighting. No recommended to go down onto the unlit areas near the water at night though. It's a very wide...More

This is for the bucket list crew. Nice beach, but not clean. Good for drinking cocktaila and dancing on at Carnival. Good vibes, just heart-breaking about the unkempt environment.

Copacabana is a nice beach, but I would recommend Impenema beach to anyone wanting a more relaxing experience.

I'd recommend walking to Ipanema from Cocacabana to see the sunset. You can also hire a bike if you prefer. After 6pm can be a bit daunting though as some of the street vendors can be a bit pushy and even rude but just smile...More

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
