Outdoor exercising in
Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas13
Why locals love it
We go for a walk, for running or for riding a bike around the lake. It’s a great place for outdoor fitness. Unfortunately swimming is impossible – take a look at the water and you’ll see it’s far polluted. Well, it’s hard to meet a Carioca who doesn’t exercise, or at least, that assumes it.
Why you should visit it
Rio has so many places for practicing sports. Lagoa has a beautiful view, you can easily rent a bike or just walk around. If you are not in the mood, go for a picnic on its gardens or try some caipirinha in one of the restaurants around.
You definitely should go for the sunset.
