  • We went to shopping and lunch, only has like any streets bauble. Is only good for buying meat, cheese ... as a public market. The rest are Northeastern food, and expensive. Not recommended to lose time to meet, no.

  • With the strong in the Northeast, is the best option in Rio to articles and cooking in this region. With closed parking and security, worth eating and walk there.

  • It's a little piece of Brazil's Northeast Culture in the middle of Rio de Janeiro. It's possible to eat, drink, dance and buy all sort of things people from Northeast States use to. There is parking area with fixed price so you can enjoy the place all the time you want to. You can get there by bus too. It's a little messy but in some way it feels fine. Relax, get in the mood and have fun.
  • Local indoor market.. Live music.. Nice food for good prices..
  • A wonderful market where you can find a very nice handmade clothes and articles for the house. The prices are cheap and the food just delicious.
  • Great: Food, karaoke, theme photos, vibe. Watch out for the guy charging R$2.00 for a photo with the wooden donkey, looked dodgy to me.
  • A big place where you can eat and drink. I was there in the weekend and there was live music.

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.
