Rio's version of South Beach Miami

Many wonderful hotels and eating establishments line the seaside avenue. Great for walking and enjoying the sights identified with Rio.

Our hotel was located here and the street offers a variety of swimming areas, cafes and shops. Street is very crowded most days and be wary at night for street peddlers and drunks.

I stayed at this beach for three days and found it more safer and peaceful than Copacabana. I was out at wee hours of the night and still did not feel unsafe. The main traffic makes a detour before the start of this beach. So, this makes the place calmer. There atleast three good brazilian restaurants here like Marius, La... More

This avenue runs the length of Copacobana and Leme beaches. We stayed four nights at the Windsor Atlantica which is at the intersection of the two beaches. The area is a little more run down than I hsd imagined, the fact that we had grey skies for the entire visit probsbly did not help. Anyway lots to do on the... More

Take a nice walk down the street with which one side hotels on the other hand Copacabana beach. You will have a chance to have dinner in one of the many restaurants and enjoy the view.

This is a natural attraction point for all tourists. It goes along the iconic Copacabana beach and filled with activities day or night. There is shopping, people watching, food, drinks, and of course, the beach. It may get hot during the day, so it's better to go there in the afternoon, later the better.

AV. Atlantica is the street around Copacabana beach. It is a very nice walk to have at the sunset, however bear in mind that this is the most touristic place in Rio.

If you like to run, or even walk, this is heaven. Probably one of the best places WW to do it, this 2 miles avenue, along the beach of Copacabana and Leme is amazing due to the views, conditions, and even the exercise stations along it. Several beach bars to drink water or agua de coco (recommended), it worth that... More

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood 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.
