Rio de Janeiro - Copacabana & Leme (Chapter)
This is the Copacabana & Leme chapter from Lonely Planet’s Rio de Janiero guidebook.
Humming Copacabana, once seedy and in decline, today seems poised on the edge of a renaissance. Its glassy kiosks have brought class to the neighborhood, while Baixo Copa has become a nightlife destination. The small neighborhood of Leme, just northeast, has a more peaceful vibe.
