I find the 2.5-mile long Copacabana Beach to have larger crowds than Ipanema Beach. I also get more hassled by vendors walking the beach. When vendors approach me, they generally speak to me in English, and I respond in a foreign language that they can’t...More

Visited for business, although I'd say there is a lot to get to know and do at Río. Take a couple of days for yourself and visit Copacabana. It's iconic, beautiful, historical and convenient. Make sure to visit Ipanema as well, it's right there.

We stayed in a hotel on the beach front with great views. Nit much going on on the rainy days but when the sun came out the beach came alive. So much to see and do but take care of your belongings.

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

U recommended you go to breakfast @ Copacabana Palace if you book in advance is very busy there! New year go to Barra da Tijuca is more safe and less busy there!!! Enjoy your holiday! 🙏😘☀️
