Nice but uncomfortable to walk along. The rocks ate uneven and the road goes up and down. Do not wear high heels! Very expensive prices...

If you like kitschy souvenirs, cheap quality clothes, overpriced restaurants and thousands of people fresh off the cruise ship with whom to share your genetic tourist experience, this is the place to be. Nothing remotely unique worth seeing here, just somewhere to mail a post card, buy a bottle of water or get some cash.

Shops are repeated over and over, the floor is unstable but walkable. It is good for people watching The prices are higher than that we found in Rio but it was not too expensive

This street is the Búzios soul. Full of bars, restaurants and shops. Nice place to have a walk and enjoy Búzios atmosphere.

This is the main action street in Buzios, all shopping and eateries. Quite a mixed crowd, and it gets really crowded! Of course, being "where it's at" prices are high. Definitely where people go to people watch and to be seen. Everyone goes, young, old and in between.

Come to Búzios and not go through the Rua das Pedras is not coming to Búzios. Address of famous restaurants, such as ChezMichou or ballads, such as Pacha, the city turns from there. A great place to relax after a day at the beach, or go shopping on dozens store, which sells from souvenirs to designer clothes.

Over rated, over crowded and the restaurants are generally overpriced. Be prepared to be accosted by waiters thrusting menus at you to persude you to ear at their restaurants.

I was in Buzios the week before Christmas and it was not crowded at all. Locals have told me that starting Christmas week until the end of Carnaval the area becomes overwhelmingly crowded. We were lucky to be there right before the craziness. There are many restaurants to choose from but the food is basically the same. Priced for tourists,... More
