Must do when in Rio. Kids loved it. You get food and drinks at the beach, however we had a hard time finding bodyboards to rent at the beach. Finally found them in surf shops between Copacabana and Ipaema. You can rent there: kids surfed...More

The Arporador Beach is close and not crowded. Nor are there many pesky vendors or thieves. It is cleaner. The only thing it does not have are the sand carvings.

It’s an historic beach, you’ll hum a tune the whole time you’re there. Clean, safe, it’s a popular tourist attraction. Visit in the evening for the flea market and great deals. Beautiful sand, but the water’s cold.

Crowded, backed by a noisy main road with an unhealthy surfeit of car emissions, with constant interference from hawkers and deckchair renters. Backed by bars and the constant presence of thieves and pickpockets, what’s not to like? Rio is a lively and interesting city but...More

Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional

traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of

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
