We are a small, but growing group of Couch Surfers. Renan is the group lead and best person to ask questions. Adriano no longer lives in Barra, but his family still does, and is currently living in the US, with plans of returning in the near future with some good social projects to be implemented in the poorest communities in Rio.
As the World Cup and Olympics quickly approach, we will start getting bigger and bigger. We hope we can make a difference in the lives of many traveling to the area, and hopefully aid in finding hosts before, during, and forever after the games.
About the area:
Located in the west side of the city of Rio de Janeiro, Barra da Tijuca is one of the best and safest places to stay in Rio de Janeiro. With the best beaches in Rio for world class surfing, "Pepe" beach with the most beautiful people per square meter in the world (no joke!!), secured/gated condominiums, great shopping at "Barra Shopping", the best Jiu Jitsu school in the world "Barra Gracie", amazing night life, the 2014 World Cup, and 2016 Olympics makes Barra a great spot to be in Rio.
Find yourself a couch in a condominium and feel Barra da Tijuca!!
SORRIA, VOCE ESTA NA BARRA!!!
