Tips from locals
Lovely restaurants on Rua Dias Ferreira. Leblon has a very family quieter vibe in Rio. Have a beer at Jobi or Bracarense, and watch the Cariocas enjoy life.
The safest neighborhood in Rio. It has the best beach, more calm, and the best restaurants.
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.
