Rio de Janeiro is famous for it’s beautiful cost full of gorgeous beaches and amazing nature. This is what I found out about Saquarema, Arraial do Cabo e Armação dos Búzios

This is the cost of Rio de Janeiro, popularly called by Região dos Lagos.

Saquarema

I started my trip in the small village of Saquarema. Because of it’s strong waves, Saquarema is one of the most searched beaches for surfers. Here are some photos of the local church, Saquarema’s most famous postal card.

Although Saquarema is not one of Rio’s most famous postal cards, it’s probably one of the coziest cities I ever visited. People are incredibly nice and the food is delicious (and best of all, it’s not expensive!).

Armação dos Búzios

Armação dos Búzios is probably the most famous city in the Região dos Lagos. It’s way more expensive than Saquarema due to the fact that Búzios is considered an internacional city. There’s a lot of night clubs, resorts, tourists, expensive mansions and famous restaurants.

Búzios began famous on the mid 60s because Brigitte Bardot fell in love with the city and spent a lot os vacations here.

If you are looking for that summer energy that Rio is famous for, you just might find it in Búzios. The city gets really crowded in the summer and there are countless party’s.

Here are some photos of the Praia Brava. It has clear blue water and crowded with mountains, I completely fell in love with it.

Arraial do Cabo

Although the city of Arraial do Cabo is not very famous and doesn’t have the same attractions as Búzios, the beaches of Arraial are the most famous in the cost of Rio de Janeiro.

The water is very still and the beach really feels like a big swimming pool. A lot of kids like to dive and swim with the turtles.

It’s so beautiful it almost seems like it’s fake. Because the beaches are crowded with nature, you have to do a little track to get to most of them, but it’s really easy and the view totally compensates.
