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. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Rio de Janeiro holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Flamengo district and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The neighborhood of Flamengo is one of the best of Rio de Janeiro. We have the Flamengo Park and the Flamengo beach that has many places to do outdoor sports activities. Note only in relation to night, where one must have special attention for not being robbed.

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.
