Photographer's Note

Here a photo I took from Tijuca rain forest National Park showing the Rio de Janeiro South zone.

The South Zone of Rio de Janeiro is where most tourists usually stay. Lots of hotels, from the fancy 5-stars like Copacabana Palace to hostels, are to be found in the neighborhoods of Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon, which also have three famous beaches, the latter two just being separated by the canal that drains the Lagoa into the sea. A little closer to downtown, the Gloria, Catete, Botafogo, and Flamengo neighborhoods are pleasant and full of Carioca character.

larger format, right click on the photo and open in a new tab.

In this photo we can see: Ipanema, Leblon and Arpoador beachs. The Cantagalo mountain, The Sugar Loaf and The Rodrigo de Freitas Laggon.
