Gay Map of Rio
Most of Rips gay bars are located in Ipanema and Copacabana. Ipanema’s gayest nightspot is on the beach block of Rua Teixeira de Melo, next to Farme.
Along Copacabana beach there is a traditionally gay-friendly area known as Bolsa, near Lido. Hustlers are pretty much part of the scene, and you should keep a good hold on your wallet

Recommended Hotels in Rio
We recommend that you try and grab a beachfront room if your budget will stretch that far! 4 star hotels offer great value but book fast. The newer 5 star hotels in Rio are some of the most opulent in the Latin America.
