Tips from locals
One of the best beaches in Rio. Try beach volleyball here. You may see one or two famous Brazilian television artists!
Leblon is more family friendly and the restaurants are better than its counterpart Ipanema. The difference between Leblon and Ipanema is Leblon is more upscale and sheeky.
This is the chic area of Rio and we are right in the heart of it, close to beach and lagoon. 3 supermarkets and 2 banks within 3 mins walk, loads of bars & restaurants plus cinemas & Shopping Leblon.
