Copacabana's equally famous neighbor along the Zona Sul coast is the hip Ipanema area. A strong surfer culture as well as numerous art galleries and street performers make Ipanema a fittingly trendy area for remote workers. Usually bustling with tourists, you'll be able to find all types of restaurants and shops in this area. The neighborhood is safe and easy to navigate with its grid system, and is also tipped as an inclusive zone for the LGBTQ+ community in the city.
