Our guide told us that in Brazil there is only one size bikini-extra small so that when a man takes a woman home he gets no suprises!
You will see every age shape and size woman on Copacabana in a tiny bikini! Its the first holiday where I have ever worried about revealing to little rather than too much!
It's a beautiful beach with people playing football and volleyball all day and night.
It's a great place to people watch with skaters, cyclists and joggers as well as markets, beach vendors (the sheer quantity of these can be a pain but with a polite no thanks they leave you alone,) musicians and impromtu parties
The beach cafes are a bit pricey but a convenient and fun
There is something going on 24/7
You cannot come to Rio without having a Caipirinha on Copacabana beach!
