About Ipanema
More Resources

The most fashionable, yet bohemian neighborhood in Rio is of course Ipanema, where upscale jewelry houses stand in harmony alongside surfer juice bars. It is here where you will find Rio's most fashionable shops, restaurants and bars within the most down to earth and relaxed atmosphere.

From the apartments on Nascimento Silva Street, where famous musician Tom Jobim of "Girl From Ipanema" fame lived most of his life, the guest has easy access to all of these shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
