Copacabana is a well known area of Rio . I personally don't like much the area as it's gettin more and more unsafe, specially if you go to the interior zone. The beachfront though is still safe. Here is where the famous hotel Copacabana Palace is situated.

A center of activity both night and day, its beach is lined with kiosks, a bicycle path and racks, lifeguard posts, public showers and bathrooms, hotels, bars and open-air restaurants.

There are two separate beaches here: Leme and Copacabana. Copacabana remains one of the favourite beaches for tourists who travel to Rio.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
