Copacabana Classics
Photo by Silviano for ipanema.com. All rights reserved. Todos os direitos reservados. When we say there's room for everyone in Copacabana we are not kidding. Before you start thinking you are in Disneyland, a view of the popular community of Pavão and Pavãozinho. The masonry houses have electricity, running water, and a view to the beach that will never quit (more details here).
A fortune was spent in the renovation of wide Av. Princesa Isabel, the border of Copacabana and Leme. The controversial expenses included overpriced granite walls on both sides of the center aisle, and street lights quoted over US$1,000 a piece. The tunnel at the end of the street connects Copacabana to Botafogo, and the historical and financial districts from Flamengo to Downtown. There is also a bicycle lane.

It is an amazing concept that fishermen actually make a living in one of Rio's most urbanized areas. Wake up early to watch them come back with the fresh catch of the day. If you help pull the net you may get a free fish...
One of the facts about Copacabana that you mayh not be aware of is that this is the area with the greatest concentration of senior citizens in Rio. Make friends at Bairro Peixoto Square, in a landmark art-deco district. It is hard to believe you are just a few blocks away from Copacabana's delicious urban chaos.
