    Shopping Iguatemi: Not Much Here

    by NedHopkins Updated Mar 3, 2004
    A Street near Shopping Iguatemi

    Virtually the sole advantage of Shopping Iguatemi is its location. Unlike its namesake in Salvador -- or Shopping Center Recife or Shopping Amazonas in Manaus -- Iguatemi is in the center of town.

    But it's much smaller than any of those three (or the big two in Rio de Janeiro).

    The nicest feature is a cybercafe with internet access at only R$2 an hour. It's on the top floor, above the fast food court (and through a video games arcade).

    What to buy: The main reason I went to Shopping Iguatemi was to visit a gallery said to have high-class reproductions of native sculpture. It was, unfortunately, out of business.
