| 4 min read

Nestled in the southern side of Rio de Janeiro, Ipanema is a gorgeous neighborhood and a popular go-to destination year-round. Its namesake beach lures watersports enthusiasts and sun-seekers in dire need of a break from the hustle and bustle of the city’s downtown.

Swing by General Osório Square on a Sunday, and you’ll get to score cheap souvenirs at the once-a-week hippie market.
