Arrive for your 3 night stay at JW Marriott Hotel in Rio de Janeiro opposite Copacabana Beach – where all the action is. By day, the 4.5 km sweeping arc of the boardwalk, white sandy beach and blue ocean is a hive of activity – fitness freaks and wanna-bes walking, jogging, roller-blading and cycling; the bold and the beautiful soaking up the sun; energetic lads playing futevôlei (an amazing combination of soccer and volleyball); people sipping the head-spinning local rum and lime cocktail – caipirinha; and graceful surfers catching the break. By night, opposite the beach, the avenue is an eclectic mix of art-nouveau and neoclassical buildings housing the rich and famous (and infamous), bustling open-air bars (botecos), fabulous restaurants and some rather seedy strip joints – something for every taste!
