I recommend that anyone that comes to Rio must experience the Big Nectar. It is a great place to get a snack and juice. Very reasonable in price.

If you don't wanna pay much for a fair meal, that's the place. You will find one of them almost every corner in ipanema and copacabana. That's a pretty simple place to eat a meal. For non-brazilians, it's an experience of eating what brazilians eat...More

Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the
best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is
inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from

high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
