Why locals recommend it
A hot spot for good restaurants and bars as well. Have lunch/ dinner at Puro or Jojo's and at night go up the road to the bars on rua Pacheco Leao. Or to have a typical Brazilian meal/ delicious meat, go to Rubayat, the restaurant where you look out over horse races at the inner city jockey club. In the same area you have the beautiful open-for-all art school Parque lage which is worth a visit, they have recently opened a good relaxed restaurant inside.
Tips from locals
This is a place to come when the beaches are crowded and you want to get away from the heat. It's never too busy and it is just a place to come and center yourself.
Get to know the actual Jardim Botanico and the Parque Lage, their both are amazing places to take a full day. For lunch, try Casa Camolese.
One of the world's best botanical gardens. It's an essential part of any visit to Rio and can be reached after walking along the Lagoa. Keep an eye out for the monkeys!
