Barra da Tijuca
Away from center
This increasingly popular suburb of Rio is located beyond Leblon and the National Park of Tijuca and is dominated by the popular Barra Beach which is lined with upscale high-rises. The suburban location of Barra da Tijuca gives expats and remote workers the opportunity to live in larger homes with pools and more complete amenities, closer to giant malls and cinemas. Although the area is home to a number of multinational companies. it is not so well-served by public transportation, making it a less desirable location among remote workers and short-term visitors as a place to live.
