Flamengo district, Rio de Janeiro

3.2
#8 of 12 in Neighborhoods in Rio de Janeiro
An area of reclaimed land near the beach makes up the Flamengo district, where you'll find massage therapists working on clients in the shade, or cyclists enjoying the trails that snake through the park. You'll also find shopping and bars throughout the area that will help you pass time before you attend an event in the park. The beach is pleasant for strolls, but the water is too polluted for swimming, so stick to the reclaimed land for the best experience.

    Stroll through Flamengo, with its incredible Park Aterro, is one thing that every tourist should do. In the Aterro breathes sport. Also tends to have prices much more accessible than the rest, and a view of the Sugar Loaf

    The neighborhood of Flamengo is an excellent neighborhood! Accessibility, trade and security are facilitators for those who want to live in Flamengo.

    Neighborhood full of shops, quiet, near Metro! A nice neighborhood to stay! The beach is dirty!

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.
