Rio is home to two of the most famous beaches in the world: Ipanema and Copacabana, both of which have inspired internationally-acclaimed hit songs, “The Girl from Ipanema,” performed by various artists, and then there’s Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana.” At Leblon beach, you will visit a viewpoint with good views of Morro Dois Irmãos (Two Brothers Mountain) and Ipanema.


Brazilian steakhouse is a cross between an all-you-can-eat buffet and a fine-dining experience. The focus is on the dizzying array of grilled meats, and you can expect anywhere from 10 to more than 15 different cuts of meat offered when you go, including salad bar and appetizers.
