Discover Rio de Janeiro

BELMOND COPACABANA PALACE
Avenida Atlântica 1702, Rio de Janeiro, CEP 22021 001, Brazil

Copacabana Beach is the beating heart of a city that thrums with an endless rhythm. Golden sands curve around a 4km stretch of Rio de Janeiro’s coastline. Towering jungle-coated mountains roll into the sea. Relentless waves curl over the sands and from every view, you’re met with a burst of color.

When you arrive in the neighborhood of Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, the first thing that hits you is the unmistakable pulse of Latin America—a great melting pot of Indigenous, European and African cultures. Our grand art deco jewel, Belmond Copacabana Palace takes center stage on the beach. From here, you are perfectly placed to delve into the rhythm of Rio and discover there’s so much more to the music.

Dancing in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro

Experience the Nightlife

Music means the world to the city where bossa nova was born. Head out after dark to nearby dancing spots Bip Bip and Mariuzinn Disco club. Often, the cariocas (locals) don’t turn-up until midnight, so be prepared to party until the small hours of dawn.
