A quiet life, good prices and an amazing view of Rio. The sunset is wonderful, and in the afternoon, people meet at the bars on the sidewalk to the rhythm of local samba bands. Icarai beach is beautiful but polluted (though splendid beaches can be found on the Atlantic side of Niteroi). Yet, every Sunday morning, Icarai is full of people walking, running, dancing and drinking Agua de Coco (or coconut milk). [photos by Jessica Parra Nowajewski]
