The most well known neighborhoods are located in Zona Sul, consisting of the famous Copacabana, Ipanema, and Leblon. The wealthy Brazilians and tourists live in Ipanema and Leblon (more wealthy).
I prefer Ipanema between the three for its proximity to the best beaches and cafes.
Lapa, famous for Samba dance clubs is located in Centro. As previously discussed, you should rent an apartment in Copacabana, Ipanema or Leblon.
The extremely poor slums, Favelas are located on the mountain slopes, sharing boarders with middle-class neighborhoods. Botafogo and Flamengo, are middle class, less touristy sections of Rio, and also solid choices.

Carnaval boasts the biggest party on earth, with Cariocos partying wildly in the streets for almost 2 weeks.

Rio is the city that exudes sexuality and conjures up thoughts of exotic beaches, sensuality, and skimpy bikinis.
It will open doors to girls that you would not otherwise have opportunities with I recommend the Pimsleur Learning Program for learning Portuguese Cariocas exude sexuality.
Their sexuality is a natural expression of themselves.
