Popular year-round with locals, the bike path, parks, decks and gardens that surround Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas is one of the most relaxed ways to enjoy the glory that is a sunny day in Rio. There are bike and roller-skate rentals for the actively inclined, playgrounds for the kids, observation decks on the water for peaceful contemplation and inexpensive bars and restaurants. (Personal favorites: exotic caipirinhas at trendy Palaphita Kitsch.) On the Leblon part of the lagoon you will find the restaurant complex Lagoon.
