Food and Drinks in Copacabana on New Years

by Urbanomad

Hi,

I'll be spending New Years in Rio with a group of friends and we wanted to know if during the day (31st of December)... until midnight... if there are usually bars / food stalls open along Copacabana so we can eat and especially drink!

We were thinking of making a reservation at Porc√£o in Ipanema, but if we can get food and drinks along Copacabana we won't need to go to a restaurante.

Thanks!

Michael

thewre will be plenty of food stalls selling food and drink so no need to go to a restaurant unless you want to sit down and get a big meal.

There are many restaurants and bars and stalls. You have to reserve your own seat. And time is finishing to find a good place. Almost places are sold out.
I am pasteing some links you may try to deal:

Travel Tips for Rio de Janeiro

Sunset in Arpoador beach

by hmoitta

Go to Arpoador ( is the rock where Ipanema beach starts) at sunset to see the beautiful view of the mountains ( in the photo Dois Irmaos and Pedra da Gavea ) , drink a coconut milk ( agua de coco) and take a walk on the beach to see people. There is a restaurant in the corner if you want to sit down and have some drinks waiting for the sunset ... When I am away from Rio I miss the wonderful views of the city.

Getting a Brazilian visa

by Dabs

If you are a US citizen, you currently need a visa to get into Brazil. The best resource for information is the Brazilian Embassy webpage that refers to the local consulate offices.

Since I live near Chicago, I took my application in person to the Brazilian Consulate on Michigan Avenue. Each Consulate office may have different requirements so check out their individual websites. Chicago's office only had an email listed, so I emailed them asking what the requirements were and they emailed me back within a very short period of time.

Do be sure to read the instructions carefully, 2 of the 3 people in front of me brought personal checks instead of cash or US Postal Service money order and the 3rd person, who was from a visa service, handed him a pile of applications that were clearly not for tourism and would likely be denied.

It currently costs $100 to get a Brazilian visa, you will also need a passport sized photo, a completed application, an itinerary or something showing that your visit is tourism and your passport needs to have 2 blank pages. If your passport is close to being full, you can get pages added to it for no fee.

Seems they change the length of their visas (perhaps in response to the length of the US visas we give their residents), ours are only good for one year from date of first entry, first entry within 90 days of receiving your visa

RIO IS TOTAL FUN!!!

by marcbrazil

You cannot start any Rio's page without talking about CARNAVAL AND SAMBA...Maybe most of Rio's visitors must think that we just have a samba parade at the famous and very good Sambodromo...It is an awful mistake, all over the city are in TOTAL PARTY...It is parties everywhere!!! And there are many many street bands which performs such a unique party, and suddenly you are dancing with more than 10 thousand people and all the streets specially in the OLD RIO are crowded.

It is party till the morning lightwhich for sure you will not be back home earlier!!!

So once you come to Rio in february just try to be part of the SOUL OF THE CITY!!!!

And always remember that famous saying: IN ROME DO LIKE THE ROMANS...

IN BRAZIL DO LIKE THE BRAZILIAN and my people do love parties!!!!

Carnaval: Street bands/processions or Bloco Partie

by Willettsworld

If you want to taste the Carnaval atmosphere but can't afford the ticket prices of the Samba Parade, then there's this free option. Street bands move through the streets and thousands of people join in, many in their self-made costumes, jumping, dancing and boozing away as much as they can stomach. Sometimes there'll be a truck blasting out loud samba music with young girls dancing on the top. For full details of where they'll be for Carnaval 2006, check out the website below.

ONE VERY SMALL LOCAL

by RafaelTheSecond

Romenia loves children and so do I, and wehn we were having lunch in the fishermen village of Itaipu on the lagoon we met that very cute little baby having fun with her mother, her shining eyes really impressed us, and she conquered our heart!;)

It is a beautiful picture of our local scene and the way for you to show that it is possible to be in touch with the locals in Rio.
