A lot of people know about this beach not from geography lessons or their own travel experiences, but because of the popular bossa nova jazz song, “Garota de Ipanema” (“Girl from Ipanema”). Its authors, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes, have made this coast no less famous than Copacabana. Interestingly, in the Tupi language, the toponym translates as “bad, dangerous waters.
