Honeymoon in Rio de Janeiro: Ipanema Beach

24 Nov

Moving along with the honeymoon posts, today I’ll write about my favorite part of Rio de Janeiro: Ipanema.

You may remember we stayed in the Copacabana district, which was lovely, but on the 3rd day of our trip we finally made it to the neighboring beach neighborhood of Ipanema. Once we discovered it, we’d spent hours on the remaining days of our trip just wandering around the streets and beach of Ipanema, just a 20 minute walk from our Copacabana apartment. It has a very cool vibe, with lots of surfers, beautiful views and endless restaurants to choose from. Ipanema is the perfect place to just… be.

If we ever make it back to Rio, we’re definitely staying in Ipanema!

    I really do like the slideshow! I like that you are adding more pictures with it and really sharing the experience more. Ipanema really sounds beautiful and your pictures bring that out.

    A friend texted me that she was on a beach in FL and dolphins had just swum by and I sent her a virtual bitch slap. So jealous. I need a beach.
