That's a great place that you can keep in form like riding a bike, running and even walking by a beatiful view. Take care of your belongings because there are many burglars around there. Today is better because there are a lot of police but...More

Fab place for spending a Sunday because it becomes full of bustle and life. Some would say it is too busy, but I think it is exactly the heart of Carioca life. Dogs, picnics, swan boat pedalos, popcorn carts and restaurant/bars on the shore of...More

Hire Bruno with Bike in Rio Tours to take you on a ride along the beaches and lake in the later afternoon. One of the best things we did in Rio!!!

In my opinion having such a big (salt-water) lake in the middle of such a beautiful city is a miracle. It really perfects the city.

As everything here in Rio De Janeiro, don't walk like a Teletubbie exposing your camera or cellphone around the lagoon to don't become another victim of robbery. The lagoon is beautiful but it is not appropriate for shower.

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of copacabana the this place will fit the bill nicely. You can either walk to it or take the metro. Hiring a bike is well recommended
