    Ipanema and Leblon are the places to be in Rio. The rest of the city ranges from run-down to scary.

    Best place to stay while in Rio. Beautiful beach and beautiful people. Fasano Hotel or Marina All Suites further down in Leblon! Great restaurants and boutiques just a block off the beach. Wonderful juice bars on Rua Visconde de Piraja for after beach refreshment. Shop for Jewelry at H. Stern or Amsterdam Sauer or go to the "Hippie Fair" for uncut stones on Sunday on Praca General Osorio. Stop by "The Girl from Ipanema" Bar for a "Chopp" and watch the people go by just as Antonio Jobim and Vinicious de Moraes did 50 years ago when they penned the famous song.

    I was on Ipanema Beach nearly every day for a month. Here I found beauty, love, kindness, passion, friends, & waves!

    This is such a stunning place! The hotspot is traditionally Posto 9, where all the beautiful people congregate. Bring your pareo and a little cash, and enjoy the parade of bikinis, rent a chair from a "barraca", and watch the unending bustle of vendors, hawking everything from jewelry to the famous globo biscuits, made from tapioca.

    Great beach, almost always busy

    Every spot (posto) has it's own crowd, Teenagers, Families, Gay, etc. At Arpoador they put on the lights when the sun is down so the surfers still can surf ) Arpoador rock formation is a beautiful place to overlook the sea and is a romantic destination for the young & older crowd )

    By the way great news: There is Free Wifi on all beaches (Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon) it's called "Orla Digital" no password needed though once and a while the signal drops (even when you drive in a cab near the beach you often can log in )))

    One cannot ask for more, Ipanema Beach is adorned with golden sand, lukewarm waters, palm trees, beautiful people, fresh coconut water huts, and a perfect for strolling/jogging path walk (Calçadão) beautifully built in a wave pattern with black and white cobble stone. And, of course, an amazing vibe!

Description

In the Southern region of Rio de Janeiro lies Ipanema Beach, a stretch of sand known for its beautiful people and idyllic setting. The beach is broken up by "postos" (lifeguard towers), with each section catering to a different crowd: families, LGBT, surfers and more. The surrounding area is lively and often crowded, with juice bars, restaurants and vendors selling their wares every few meters. Bring a towel, some money for a smoothie, and don't forget the sunscreen.
