“shady parks and interesting views”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

beautiful walks along the sea or through the reclaimed land which forms the park . take a massage in the shade, hire a bicycle and use the cycle track, jog , or simply stroll. Don´t think of swimming however as the water is too polluted. Newly installed shower/toilet facilities have helped

“Flamengo”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

A far cry from the popular, though god knows why, Copacabana and Ipanema districts. I live in Flamengo and appreciate it's history, it's mix of old and new, though thankfully there is a lot more old than new. Few tourists visit Flamengo, it is not really on the tourist map but here you can walk about in freedom with no thoughts of being robbed and if you want to risk your life and wealth, you can take the metro to Copacabana and Ipanema. Flamengo is the best district in Rio!

“One of the most recommended places in Rio to stay.”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

I was at sunny sunday for a tour around the wonderful moderm landmark, O Parque do flamengo. My day went throught the night, we find sweets to taste around & surprizingly a ragtime concert & free jazz djs sessions without spending a dime.

I would definitely live there a while. Actually even I should have stayed longer there on my last stay. Just as you can get there in the Flamengo neighborhood quickly, you can also leave it. A variety of bus and metro pass through there, you can walk to foot naturally for kilometers without feeling exhausted, inclaustro in the urban environment, which gives you a false feeling of closeness.

“Flamengo has lots of charm, but”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

Only the beachfront avenue, where you can catch a glimpse of decent early 20th century architecture. The streets and avenues in the middle are best avoided, unless you're looking for a specific place of restaurant. Wait for big improvements though, as major events such as the World Cup and Olympics approach.
