Rio de Janeiro, Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas.
This lake is a huge open space in the middle of Rio de Janeiro, offering fantastic views of the Ipanema skyline, Corcovado and the Christ the Redeemer statue. At the weekend, visitors can join the city's residents for a stroll or cycle on the 8km (5-mile) path that surrounds it or enjoy the nearby parks, exercise stations and leisure facilities. Visitors can join families on the lake and hire one of the swan-shaped pedaloes. Nearby is the Jardim Botânico, a landscaped garden containing over 8,000 Brazilian and imported species of flora. In the evening, the lakeside remains lively, as people dine at one of the many kiosks, each serving regional and international food. Some also provide live music for entertainment.
