Flamengo district, Rio de Janeiro
(3.1/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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. To visit Flamengo district and get the most from your holiday in Rio de Janeiro, create itinerary details personal to you using our Rio de Janeiro holiday planner.

  • Neighborhood less trendy than Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon, Flamengo has more economic options in terms of hotels than the other 3. There are subway, several lines dde bus all over town and even to neighboring towns (Niterói) and is closer to the Santos Dumont Airport, the most central of the city. There are cinemas of street/gallery, theatres and great restaurants. The beach occasionally, is getting safe for bathing. And has the landfill, which is great. For those coming on business or for leisure with little money, would recommend.

  • Well other than the stretch of Copacabana to Lebron, always packed with tourists, the neighborhood of Flamengo looks familiar. In bars and restaurants if you realize that almost all visitors are residents of the surroundings. So is another climate, seems to another city.

  • Great place for a walk day, with many green area next to the beach. It is a safe place and not so expensive in comparison to the area south of the city.
