La Cucaracha in Ipanema is a shop full of interesting collections and is definitely worth a visit for example they have Limited edition Nike trainers in the window and a selection of t-shirts from hemp leaf-covered bowling shirts to fresh and unique designs. There is a box of CDs containing local sound system DigitalDubs rubbing and DJ Kiros mixtapes.
The comic and book shelves have books like 'Disposable: A history of Skateboard Art' and 'Art & Sole: Trainer Design' which are unusual and not found anywhere else nearby. The shop has a constant lure of limited edition new arrivals, posters and flyers to check out before hitting the beach!
