NileGuide Expert tip:
Don't miss the fruit and vegetable market that takes place here every Sunday from 9am-1pm
Most visitors to Rio overlook it, but bobbing boats, grassy verges, terrific views and plenty of places to enjoy an ice cold beer or coconut water make Marina da Gloria worthy of a few hours of your time. Easily the best day to visit is Sunday, when the road facing the marina is closed to traffic and runners, dog walkers and joggers take over the asphalt.
