Headed to Rio in March. Where should we stay, and what should we do?

Have any friends that can help guide us around Rio and Salvador?

Message: Oneil, I usually stay in Copacabana, I know many people on this board prefer Ipanema but I find that Im usaully at Copa in the evening and I would prefer to walk to my hotel. The 3 hotels I stay at I will list below. The hotels I will list are all in Copacabana within 2 blocks of each other on the beach. The debret is 3 star the other 2 are 4 star. The Debret is about $60 a day while the other 2 are about $100 a day for a standard room. Everybody's tatses are different, I prefer the lively scene in Copacabana, including the outdoor cafes on ave atlantica. It is true that Ipanema is more higher class and reserved but it's not far from Copa when you need a break.

Message: Oniel, depending on what your idea of fun/sun/relaxation is, keep in mind most 5 star hotels including the Rio Othon Palace will not even allow you to bring your Grandmother into your room for tea (unless she is a registered guest).
