Avenida Atlantica, with the iconic wavy sidewalk mosaic of Roberto Burle Marx, is ideal for strolling along Copacabana Beach. It is lined with beachside kiosks offering refreshments such as a chilled coconut, and at the far end is a quaint area...more
We actually stayed right on the Avenida, at the Hilton, and really liked all the fuss going on all up and down the street. So many great local shops and restaurants. We absolutely loved that part of Rio!
WE stayed in a Copacabana hotel on Avenue Atlantica near post 5. Avenue Atlantica is a busy two-way dual carriageway which separates shops, hotels and restaurants from Copacabana Beach. There are numerous safe crossing points to get from one side to the other and we...More
This is the heart of Copacabana and I would even say of Rio de Janeiro: for the new year December 31, 3 million people gather in this place, all the world dressed in white to receive the new year with new limpid purity in body...More
With half of the duel carriageway closed to traffic on Sunday we chose the right day to arrive in Rio and explore Copacabana Beach. The beach was really busy with sun worshippers and the street lined with bars and restaurants, with beach side sellers interspersed...More

Stop by the iconic Copacabana palace for a drink at their bar and visit...More

Nowadays you need to be careful as you walk the Avenida Atlantica. Unfortunately things have changed...More
this is the Avenue opposite Copacabana. Many outdoor restaurants and the walkway for its rich (and mainly older) residents. Half of it is closed on Sundays, a welcome move by city planners. Safe and to be enjoyed.
This is a lovely place to walk and take in the the sights and sounds of Copacabana Beach. It also a good place for biking or jogging as there’s a separate double lane between the avenue and beach for this purpose. Many people are along...More
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, 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
draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
