We came all way up on a journey to explore the west zone of Rio

El día de hoy fuimos a la Pedra do Telégrafo y visitamos las playas de Barra. El camino hacia la piedra fue un poco pesado pero a la vez muy bonito. Nos encontramos con monos, mariposas azules y lo mejor de todo, una vista espectacular. La pasamos muy bien en las playas de Grumari y Prainha. Fue muy interesante encontrar un lugar tan cercano y tan diferente al Rio de Janeiro que conocíamos todos.

That's one of the most searched hikes in the city.

While tourists tend to stick to the touristy areas in the south zone – Copacabana and Ipanema, the west zone of Rio offers a newfound variety of things to explore. The beaches are the most attractive part of the west zone of Rio. The waters of this neighborhood are the most sought after by surfers, windsurfers, body boarders, fishing enthusiasts, cyclists, and hikers looking for adventure. This side of town is known for its many (some still unexplored) lakes, rivers, mountains and hikes. A jewel for those seeking adventure. Join us next time on a journey to explore the west zone of Rio. That’s what we love doing on RioLIVE! Weekends Barra.
