Copacabana Beach
Photo by Silviano for www.ipanema.com. All rights reserved. Todos os direitos reservados. The mosaic sidewalks of Copacabana Beach were designed by Burle Marx, Brazil's most famous landscape planner. White, black and red stones are arranged in bold designs that are a feast to the eyes. A walk along under the shade of the coconut trees watching the gentle surf break is guaranteed to bring your stress level down in 15 minutes. Ask any local...
The sidewalk opposite the beach is very wide. It is especially beautiful when seen from above. There are different patterns on each block. Of course the trademark black and white wave is always part of the game. This avenue is lined up with cafes, nightclubs, restaurants, hotels and posh residential buildings. Only two houses remain - one is private-owned, and the other is a consulate. Photo by Silviano for www.ipanema.com. All rights reserved. Todos os direitos reservados.

At weekends evenings there is a popular handcrafts fair in the Posto 5 area. It's a good chance to find original souvenirs and Rio memorabilia such as naïf paintings of famous city sights. Some aisles have gas stations that remain open around the clock.
No walking tour in Copacabana is complete without the mandatory stop at the Riotur office. This branch of Rio de Janeiro's Travel and Tourism Bureau is conveniently located on the Lido side of Av. Princesa Isabel, at the border with Leme. Ask for your Rio Guide, a booklet with listings of things to do, places to go, emergency phones and useful information. The photos on the cover change according to the season, and they make a great souvenir to take back home. They also have free maps, brochures and other literature you may want to go through.
