Drink the famous cold mate tea (with or without lemon) and try biscoito Globo (sweet or salty)! They are normally sold by the same person wearing orange clothes and saying 'olha o maaate!' this is the perfect combination and the beach snacks every Carioca loves.
The beach is clean, wide and the weather was perfect in early April. Sundays are great because one side of the avenue is closed for use by pedestrians, cyclists, skateboarders and rollerbladers. Cariocas love to be outdoors and active!
That famous song of the Ipanema girl or boy follow every steps on the beach , just get a place and relax and you soon be amaze with those beautiful bodies walking on the shores of the warms water. It is a place not to miss under any circumstances.
The best beach. Go early on Sundays as beach fills up from around 10.30am. Great place to relax, surf, people watch. One side of the road by the beach is closed to traffic on Sundays so bring your skateboard, skates etc.
I like Ipanema better than Copacabana because the water is nicer. A lot of Seaweed in Copacabana some spots. Also the waves are incredible- so much fun! Strong current. Some people prefer the calm water of Copacabana. Both have Kiosks though Copacabana has more.
We stayed at Leme beach but visited Ipanema, taking a bus for the fraction of the cost of a taxi. We relaxed at Post 8 but heard Post 9 is the best area. The beach is truly amazing although the one downside is the constant solicitation from beach vendors, selling drinks, trinkets, etc. It seemed 10 seconds didn't go by without someone trying to sell you something. Leme was much more chilled and relaxed in that regard.
The location is perfect - minutes from the beautiful Ipanema beach (at which the hostel has an association with a nearby barraca), and minutes from the metro stop, making it easy to access the rest of Rio. There are plenty of options for trips and excursions, and for nightlife too. The staff at the hostel are truly amazing - friendly, helpful, fun, informative and knowledgeable - they really made my stay special and Rio wouldn't have been the same without them. And the caipirinhas... I can't wait to go back.
Super location, half a block to Ipanema beach and half a block to the metro, near a lot of shopping, in a very safe location. The price was good for the location and the room decor is streamlined, spartan but much nicer than a lot of the tacky stuff you see in other local hotels of the same category. All the staff was amazing, helpful, friendly. They immediately changed us to a new room when we had issues in the first one.
The location between Ipanema and Copacabana cannot be beat. The hotel is modern and clean. The front office staff goes out of their way to make sure guests are comfortable and happy. This is my second time at the hotel and I love this place! Even though the hotel is a couple of blocks from the ocean, they provide beach chairs at a concession on Ipanema Beach...
The location was great. Directly across from Ipanema Beach. The breakfast was very good with a lot of options to choose from. They even had hot milk to add to the coffee so the coffee stayed hot. Nice touch. The hotel even had beach chairs, beach towels and an beach umbrella for our use for free. I appreciated that.
Our room was very comfortable and a wonderful view of the beach. It was very nice to sleep listening to the waves. Room was quiet and very clean. Location of the hotel was great near Leblon and Ipanema beach. There are 3 nice restaurants in this resort.
Beautiful view of Ipanema beach - that is if you get one of the high floors. Great location, decent quality and value for money. Would recommend if you are looking for a no-fuzz great place kind of hotel near Copacabana or Ipanema
The atmosphere on Copacabana and Ipanema beach is just so cool. Although you do need to keep an eye on your belongings!
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!
