Real Estate in Rio - Barra and Recreio
Al throughout history, Rio has been moving southwards, with the elite moving to the newest areas every 20 years or so.
Today, Barra and Recreio are at the foreground of this movement; a modern, Miami-like beach area with about 30 km of beach south of Rio.
Highrise beachfront condo's with large garden, pool and leisure areas and complete security are the newest hit.
While some think it has lost the charm of the old Rio, others adore the quality lifestyle of having a beachfront condo (in front of great, quiet beaches) with restaurants, entertainment and large shopping malls just behind it on the endless 'Avenida das Americas'.
Most projects closer to the city are more middle class, but as one moves away from the city (10, 15 km from Ipanema) projects become more exclusive.
This area stands a very good chance of becoming the next top area in Rio and is interesting for off-plan investors.
