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!

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
