Barra da Tijuca
Located a little out of the way, this popular area and beach deserves a visit. Famous for its enormous shopping center Barra Shopping and upper-class residents, Barra has a certain Miami air about it. The visitor can come here to enjoy discotheques, shopping, good restaurants and bars. Probably the best reason to come here, however, is the beach itself. The water is clean, perfect for surfing, windsurfing and body boarding, and it doesn't get quite as crowded as Copacabana or Ipanema.
I loved my staying in Barra - A paradise in Rio - There you might enjoy the beach, the nature, the hills, the forest and at the same time you are surrounded by best restaurants, clubs, bars, theaters, shows and etc... Everything is new,modern and sophisticated over there. Evething is hyper - hypermarkets, hypermalls. Barra looks like Miami but I think Barra is better because there is no best season to go there. You can have a blast all year long. So if you are thinking about putting together nature and all the good things big cities can provide... Barra, Rio de Janeiro City is your destination. Have fun
