Arpoador has an strategic view from the transition of Copacabana to Ipanema, it is a must see in the first time at Rio. Go up the rocks (easy) and get some pics.

Most of the days we stayed in Rio, it was cloudy and we really couldn't see the sunset. We walked up there on one early in the morning. There were not too many people. Ipanema beach is pretty clean and nicely kept. But not sure...More

Adjacent to Ipanema, near the Arpoador garden. Nice, but not so attractive as Ipanema. Lots of people.

many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
