I was very well impressed with the Brazilian roads which is not usual in Latin America. The Avenida Atlantica runs along the Copacabana beach, It has good sidewalk, a lane for bikers, and even small gas stations in the middle. You have the ocean view.

It is an avenue beside the Copacabana beach. At Leme region you can find nice restaurants for dinner, parks to sit and at the end at Leme forte area to sit a nice cafe and see all the copacabana beach.

The beach has a very historic Copacabana Hotel down the road. There are many choices of eateries along the beach. We could see painters painting and selling their art work.

Leme is the beginning of the Copa beach, which you should walk end-to-end, including the base of the mountain where the fishermen are. There is a sign that warns of danger, but people walk out there on calm days.

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
