For the Runner – Copacabana Beach

It’s a wonderful run along the beach of Copacabana. In the early morning (7am), hundreds of people run/walk along the beach. There is a paved running area separate from Avenue Atlantica that runs the entire length of the beach. It is marked off on each end and it is 4000m end to end. The views of the mountains on one side and the ocean/islands on the other are truly inspiring as you are perspiring. There are many more walkers than runners, but they tend to walk on the sidewalk and respect the runners. Be sure to get our run in before 9am in the summer as it gets very hot very fast. If you are not used to the humidity, it does tend to drain you energy more quickly than usual.

We rented a bike and I can quite remember, but I swear it was only about $11-$13 US to rent it for he whole day...and we had to rent the kick stand extra!
