It has a special energy. We were there during the Carnival, so it was a bit crowded but still amazing. You can find a spot near one of many bars on the beach so you can hear their music. Water is nice. Most definitely worth visiting.

There is no way to avoid the crowded streets of Rio. except maybe after midnight
I took one and half hour to get back to the airport in a cab . it is only a 27km distance which tells you that we were going at a speed of 18 km / hour !! it was nerve wrecking.
there are public bicycles for rent if you want to enjoy beach cruising or shopping
Buses are always available and also cheap as Taxis .
Be careful of the taxi drivers, they ave tendency to take you in round trips before getting you to your destination so if you have a navigator on your phone turn it on and let the driver listen to it and realize that you are studying the road as he drives.

The landscape and vegetation is very nice to watch; the green environment, the hilly undulations and the beaches. I was impressed with the way the people have preserved their natural resources and merge architecture into the natuaral landscape.

Try to agree a price with a taxi driver before getting in, otherwise they will take you all around the world. Avoid walking where possible, especially in areas like Lapa as they're very dangerous at night.

There is a great spot on the rocks at the end of Ipanema beach (at the Copacabana end). Grab a coconut or a beer from one of the many vendors wandering around and enjoy!
