Ipanema vacation rentals

Surf and sand in Ipanema

Under the twin-peaked silhouette of the Morro Dois Irmaos, Ipanema continues to tick over to the sounds of samba and Brazilian jazz. A muse for artists and leftie politicos, the place still hums with the energy of a real subculture hotspot. Favela dwellers come here to kick footballs away from the fashionistas of Copacabana. Surfers come to ride to the frothing Atlantic tubes. Cariocas head down to soak up the rays on the weekend. It's a vibrant, buzzing sector of Rio's Zona Sul, packed with excellent bars and swish Ipanema vacation rentals aplenty.

Living like a Carioca in Ipanema

Ipanema vacation rentals are your ticket to one of Rio's most happening beach quarters. You can spend whole holidays kicking soccer balls and playing volleyball with the tanned Cariocas who are regulars of the Zona Sul. You can rent out boards and hit the frothing Atlantic beach breaks with the wave riders. Or, you can hop between the feijoada joints and bossa nova houses on the oceanside avenue, learning how to craft spicy Latin fare or listening to the bumping jazz that's still the backing track of the beach.

Culture and coastal treats in Ipanema

The long stretch of sand that is Ipanema Beach is the most obvious attraction in this neighborhood. Seek out the coveted Ipanema vacation rentals with views down to the beachside posts and volleyball courts and you'll find yourself staying in one of the most vibrant spots in all of Brazil. It's not just about the coast though. You can discover ad hoc art galleries on the Praca General Osorio and can see resplendent jewel collections in Diamond Row. The Galeria de Ipanema is home to acclaimed Latin American art works, which are well worth spying out.

A warming jaunt to Ipanema

Eager to escape the chillier months of North America? Pining for some sun around Christmas? Need a bout of tropical warmth to get you through the winter? Ipanema vacation rentals could just be the perfect thing. This sun-splashed, seaside neighborhood on the edge of Rio's salt-washed Zona Sul is at its best between December and March. That's when the tanned bodies hit the beach for sunbathing, while February brings on the wild nights and jazz blowouts of the Rio Carnival.

Salt wash and soaring peaks in Ipanema

Ipanema's little cut out of the Rio coast is nothing short of breathtaking. The twin-topped mountains of the Morro Dois Irmaos _ the Two Brothers _ crash over the sands to the west, creating a striking topography and offering soaring lookouts with some of the best sunrise and sunset viewing in the metropolis. Down below, the strip runs from Leblon to the end of Copacabana Beach, washed by roaring surf at some points and dotted with soft sunbathing sections at others. Nearby, the Tijuca Forest also beckons, a land of tabletop mountains and misty tropical groves.
