You will not have difficulty getting a return transport to your hotel, but you need to be very well informed by the information sector. That way, you do not risk making a wrong decision.... More

I visited here in mid November. The centre is close to Copacabana. The shops are relatively basic and more focused on local people and not tourists. I wouldn't rush back.

If you want a break from the heat, then this is the place for you! The shops here range from mid to top tier stuff, it's a good place for brazilian brands I guess.

A very huge shopping center with a great variety of brands. Definitely a very good place for tourists with a lot of shops of Brazilian signature products, crafts, souvenirs...

This mall has many of the "usual" brands that are not necessarily the top exclusive brands. They have a large selection on their 4 floors. Cafeterias and food court available. Climbing wall was available during the Olympics, maintained by Austrian people.
