Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro
Still an active fort protecting Rio. It now contains the Army Museum. The museum is fairly interesting and the site gives great views of the beaches and Rio.
Copacabana Beach is the most touristy of the Rio beaches. This place is also where you can find most of Rio's nightlife .
**Beginning the process of arduous upload of photos. Please come back soon as time permits, I will be adding actual information to this tip**
Full of people come from all countries of the world making just one party!!!
Do the same!
See the others pictures!
Sip cocktails, hang around and watch nice brazilians bodies and bums, sip again caipirinhas, engage dialogues with locals, bargain for jewelry, get some tan, look at the beautiful sand castels.
One of the most famous beaches in the world, and rightly so. A beautiful setting and despite all the tourists still one of the main attractions of Rio.
Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro is famous for its sidewalk with the wave pattern. You can walk for miles along the beach walking on these waves...
Copacabana is one of the main residential zones in Rio, and is primarily upper middle class. Most of the nicer zones in Rio look like this: highrises against background of steep black mountains.
This neighborhood of one millio people is one of the most famopus places in the World, and you can have this great view from the famous Sugar Loaf Mountain.
From there is where the most classical postcards photos of Copacabana Beach are taken.
Well.... just to be a little "dark sheep" I preferred focusing not at the beach, but at the mountains :o)
We saw some lovely sculptures done with the sea sand on Copacabana beach. the guy made new ones every day, so you always had something new to look at.
The most famous beach of the world. It sure is beautiful. Here is a pic I took about one week ago. Water seems cleaner at Ipanema beach but Copa was rated as "OK" in the papers.
This was an August morning when we happened to arrive there and the famous Copacabana welcomed us, empty, stormy and with two fishermen. But still, the view was nice.
View of Copacabana from the top of Corcovado. Hint: if the sky is cloudy sit down and wait a few minutes... they will probably go away in half an hour.
Watch the sunrise from Copacobana (after disco....)
Can be seen from any of the 24 h bars along 'Copa'.
