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.

Best sunrise from behind the hills in the distance. Great to walk around and generally safe. I prefer Ipanema though.

We strolled along the sidewalks at night and on the sand in the daylight. It is just beautiful. We did not feel unsafe at all.

Copacabana

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
