4. Ipanema and Leblon
Ipanema and Leblon are two great beaches. They are separated by the Jardim de Alá – the canal that drains the lagoon called Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas. The place is adjusted for tourists. There’re lots of restaurants, cafés and luxurious hotels. Ipanema and Leblon are also two districts with a rich cultural life, cinemas, avant-garde theater and art galleries. Every Sunday locals open an antiques market. Pick any of the crafts sold there, listen to music, observe art and taste local foods – let your vacation be full of new sensations.
