Where is it?


Rio is famous for its landscape, beach culture and carnival. Rio offers natural beauty, history, and the contagious fun of its people. New Years Eve and Carnaval are special times. The period between Christmas and Carnival is festive. However, the city and it's people are vibrant and alive all year. Rio's beaches are enjoyed year round due to its latitude. The forest between city and beaches provides geographical beauty. There’s always something new in Rio: art exhibitions, dance, concerts and events.
To explore further, catch a taxi, bus or subway. Rio has great transportation. To do: modern art museums, Tijuca Forest, historical churches, mountain climbing, hike sugar loaf, hang-gliding and fishing. Enjoy the people; they are friendly. Most visitors make new friends.
The apartment is in a great area of Copacabana. Everything is walking distance: many wonderful restaurants, cafés, fresh juice stands, supermarkets, laundry services, movie theater, internet access, shopping areas, nightclubs and more. The sandy beach is 150m (500feet) walking from our building's entrance.
In Copacabana, our apartment is on the beach side of Rua Domingos Ferreira, near the intersection of Rua Bolivar.
