“Lacking in charm but ok to find activities such as diving or regatta”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Not the sort of the place you and hang out because there are nice restaurants and bards to go to. There is one decent restaurant called Barracuda and it is completely overpriced. If you are looking for diving lessons or which to pass your license or get going with some regatta courses then this is the place to go to.

“Wait for improvements”

The place could be wonderfull. But it seems that the city left it behind. Hard to park, bad restaurants, no good attractions... I hope it be renovated. Rio deserves...

“Free park and free acess”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

If you want to take a ship tour in Rio, you can go direct to Marina da Gloria and buy a tickt cheaper than the travels agencies. It's easy to call to check the schedules. In Marina there isn't much to see. It's a place to keep the privates boats. But one of the best restaurant in Rio is located over there (Barracuda Restaurant). They also have sailing classes. Very expensive but cool.

“The picture on the left is of Copacabana beach, not Marina”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

Strangely, Rio is not a place for boat owners, maybe because it is expensive. But from this Marina you can catch a sightseeing tour. Only for those who are into boats.
