Welcome to Barra da Tijuca & West of Rio

West of Leblon you'll find great hiking amid the rainforest of Floresta da Tijuca. Nearby, hang gliders make their soaring descent. Further out, Barra da Tijuca is a sprawling suburb with a long, pretty beach, but you'll need a car to get around. Other beaches dot the coast, and get wilder and less populated the further west you go
