"Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas" Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas Tip by besbel

  Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas-Ipanema
by besbel

When I arrived in Rio, very late at night, a taxi took me from the airport to the San Marco Hotel in Ipanema. Shortly before reaching the hotel, we went near this lagoon. It was a full-moon night and that, together with the lightening of the lagoon, made the view simply magical. I was so impressed I even found it more charming than Geneva's Lake Léman at night.
But the magical view is not the only thing you could find in this place. The Lagoa area is full of restaurants, discos, sport areas (especially for cycling) and other for leisure activities. It is also very close to the Ipanema beach, just eight blocks away. Besides the beach, this is another great spot to hang out, either alone or with friends.
