Flea Market Shopping
Handmade goods and souvenirs abound at Copacabana Fair, the best place to buy gifts for family and friends. The vendors are willing to bargain with you so you can really get away with paying much less than at other shops. Very close to the beach itself, it is the perfect place to experience a little more of the neighborhood spirit and its people. Chat with the vendors themselves and even learn to play instruments typical to the samba. To visit Copacabana Fair on your trip to Rio de Janeiro, use our Rio de Janeiro holiday planner.

  • From Monday to Sunday you can visit the handicraft market in the central promenade of Copacabana in posto 5 height with their tents full of souvenirs and other products at reasonable prices. The fair begins to be mounted before falling in the afternoon and stay till the wee hours. It's good to go through the stalls before buying, prices vary. Haggle!

  • The cheapest place to buy souvenirs that's fair, I rode a lot of shops on rua Nossa Senhora de Copacabana and the same souvenir almost 3 x more, only open from 18:00. TB can find the same items that the peddlers sell on the beaches as sarongs, Bikini, etc.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
