Overview

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 where fishermen bring their fresh catch ashore.

You can find many nice hotels and restaurants right here. Windsor Excelsior is one I recommend, near the famous Copacabana Palace, if you "have" to stay in this area. 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.

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
