Beach
“Copacabana Beach. Prefer the beaches in Ipanema and Leblon, next posts. Although I recommend you to visit Copacabana once and drink a Brahma Chopp (local Brazilian draught beer - although it is not a draft beer, technically, as it is made in different local unpasteurized procedure) in the sidewalk kiosks, you should prefer the beaches in Ipanema and Leblon. Copacabana is too much touristic, there will be a lot of people interrupting you and trying to sell you all kind of stuffs, and sadly, there may be some opportunistic steelers. Avoid the restaurants in Copacana also, except for the bars in the Rua Bolívar, which usually have good appetizers and cold beers/chopps. ”
