Luxury in Copacabana: Colourful people, fun in the sun

Copacabana is a neighbourhood in the southern zone of the city of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. It is world famous for its beaches. Visions of samba, carnival, speedos and alegria come to mind at the mention of Copacabana. It is every tourist’s favourite stopping point. Visitors to Brazil’s grandiose former capital often ponder whether to stay in Ipanema or Copacabana on a tour of Rio de Janeiro. These two beach communities are both great options, however first time visitors are best served in Copacabana, lined with dozens of diverse restaurants and kiosks on both side of the Avenida Atlantica. If you want to branch out from Copacabana vacations to other parts of beautiful Rio de Janeiro, you will find an extensive bus transportation network. Whatever Copacabana activities beckon you, you will be glad to explore more of this great city.

Located in Zona Sul, Copacabana Beach is one of the most celebrated beaches in the world. The atmosphere is very lively and the people are fun loving. Get to the beach by taking the subway on Line 1 or take one of the public buses. The view to the left of Copacabana beach is the towering mountain of Sugar Loaf and Fort Duque de Caxias built in 1779. On the other side is Copacabana Fort, which dates back to 1914. It houses the Army Historical Museum. The beach runs for 4 km in an east west direction. Stop by one of the several beach bars, enjoy a gold cup of draft beer with herbed meat and fried onions. Take a walk along the beach to enjoy some of the most unbelievable sand sculptures and when you get thirsty try some of the aqua de coco or coconut water straight from the coconut.
