Want to be part of the “in” crowd? Head to Ipanema located in the South of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. This place is so fly they even wrote a song about it.
Going back to the swanky days of the 1960’s, Ipanema Beach is said to be where the very first “wedgy” or thong bikini was worn, making its mark in men’s minds all over the world. African-Americans who are used to bringing everything with them to the beach will like the amenities Ipanema offers. You can get everything from bathing suits to food to even jewelry right on the beach itself.
