Barra is like a different city indeed. I am busy during the week, but weekend is ok.
Things to do: beach (I like Posto 6 but there are a lot of good points, including Reserva and Recreio), the bars at *Avenida Olegario Maciel and *Parque das Rosas, or night clubs at *Avenida Armando Lombardi. The malls are typicals in Barra, mainly *BarraShopping-NewYork-Villagemall(opening this week) complex, but... you are from Canada and there it is muuuuuuch cheaper. ;)
If you wish to surf you can rent a board at the beach.
Another good think to do is hiking, mainly the *Pedra da Gávea, the trail begins in Barrinha.
Cheers and Welcome to Barra! ;)
