  • It's a very familiar, very important to strengthen the local crafts. You can find since things in leather, hippie accessories and even wonderful frames. Worth knowing.

  • Some time would not at the fair, but it's still an option for distraction despite not having much new

  • I bought my girlfriend a nice bracelet here, made by a couple that owns their own small business. You don't need to spend a lot of time here, but it's fun to look around.  more »

  • Not much to see. You have to pay entrance fee 5R$ just to enter the market. On the other hand it's ok because you can find all you can eat buffe restaurants with reasonable prices if you negotiate...
  • Great local artists. We found a wonderful carved artpiece and got it at a great price. Never take the first price. Check with airline about carryon on larger pieces as I had to check the item into baggage at the airport.
  • The Hippie fair is quite close to Ipanema beach, so if you are so lucky, that you can be in Rio on Sunday, do not miss it. Although the market is the treasure of the local art crafts, but the best of the bests is the Acaraja with shrimp. As tasty as it looks like. Try it!
  • Nice local shops with products from around brazil
  • Open Sundays, a fun place to get a Brazilian souvenir, I found a tarp hat for 30 reals which was super fortuitous because I wanted to bring one back and this was literally the one place I came across one. As flea markets go this one was pretty big with all kinds of neat stuff, local art, trinkets, accessories, clothes. Bring a lot of smaller bills, it helps with the bargaining.

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.
