Profile: Copacabana

Profile: Copacabana

Copacabana’s beach is 2.5 miles long and as smooth as can be, but what makes it so much more alluring than other beaches around the world? Try world-class theater, shopping, restaurants, nightclubs, and seaside champagne bars to name just five things. Add tropical weather and five-star hotels to this Rio South Zone region, and you’ve got yourself a tourist destination.

Don’t leave Brazil without trying restaurants such as Churrascaria Palace, which opened in 1951 and serves tender cuts of meat, a variety of seafood, fresh vegetables, and even a selection of olive oil and honey.
