Geared for Tourism

This small district is geared for tourism. It's set up perfectly for pedestrians, and there are many shops and restaurants to visit. The ocean is right there.

Buzios is my passion, maybe because the style remember French Riviera and Amalfi Coast, the price is similar between 2 cities but the warm water and colour are excellent. There are cops but it´s necessary take care with personal objects.

This is a very cozy spot. It's best in the weekend at night. There is lots of restaurants and the beaches are nearby. This fits for both families and party people! Buzios also generally fells very safe.

We wandered up this quaint little street at Carnavale time and the streets were busy with tourists. There are plenty of examples of old Portuguese architecture

This cobblestone street is the main avenue in Buzios for shopping (high-class jewellery and gemstones seem to be a specialty) but every other shop is actauly a restaurant, although there is also an Assembly of God church on one corner!

Walking by this street you will be close to the beach, in some places you can see the blue ocean, buty also nice to see some fashion stores (mainly for swimming, of course) and very good restaurants where you can taste local sea food.

I always love strolling through the shops here, there is always something to buy! Of course, a bit pricey given that it is a tourist area, but worth seeing.

This street has several stores and restaurants that you will love to know. I just loved to walk through them. Makes you feel safe and confortable. It's the best place for meeting friends during the night hours.

A MUST, when in Búzios. Lots of interesting shops, restaurants, and people watching - where you hear many foreign languages, and the sound of music from local musicians - there's always something happening on Rua das Pedras!
