RentaLocalFriend's City Tips

  • The colorful, summery clothes are the best, and most unique, items to be found here.
  • You will have ample opportunity to buy Brazilian bikinis and beachwear.
  • You may prefer to explore the shopping areas by bike or motorcycle as there is often a shortage of parking spaces.

    The charming Orlat Bardot is the high-end part of Buzios, where many sophisticated shops can be found. Besides its great views of the ocean, this boardwalk is the perfect place to window shop — as most of the shops here are pretty pricey!

    Away from the trendsetting or luxury shopping areas, this neat square is where local artists, hippies, and laid-back tourists come to gather local handicrafts and souvenirs.
