Gávea is one of the best neighborhoods in Rio de Janeiro. Close to the forest and botanical Gardens, it is in the middle of South Zone Rio. It is near the Beaches and at the same time near the waterfalls of the city. Good restaurants for all kinds of tastes in one of the safest areas of Rio.
The family neighborhood, near schools and the university. A place to relax, very close to the beach and to the bothanical garden. Baixo Gávea, at night, is a great place to have a beer.
