NileGuide Expert Says:
Take advantage of the incredibly cheap rates for hiring bicycles, and cycle around this pretty little island. Alternatively, take to the waters by hiring a peddle boat at the beachfront. The best time to come is on weekdays, when the island is quiet and prices drop even further.
- Immortalized by Tom Jobim and Vinícius de Moraes in the song "Garota de Ipanema", this is a more fashionable alternative to Copacabana. Besides enjoying the wonderful stretch of beach with great surf and umbrellas to camp under, you can wander through the streets to discover chic boutiques, trendy restaurants and hip cafés. On Sundays, there is a hippie market in Praça General Osório where handcrafts, clothes and souvenirs from Rio can be found.
