Leblon in Rio de Janeiro, an affluent place.
Ipanema is an affluent place but Leblon in Rio de Janeiro is, without a doubt, considered the most affluent place in the city.
In Rio de Janeiro south zone.
Leblon beach is located in Rio de Janeiro south zone, just beside Ipanema. Once Ipanema beach is over (there's a chanel as a landmark) we have the beginning of Leblon beach.
On the above picture you can see exactly where Leblon beach starts: on the right hand side of the canal we have the beginning of Leblon beach. This canal connects the beach to the Lagon (Rodrigo de Freitas Lagon).
Nightlife in Leblon.
It is not as busy as Ipanema, but the bars, pubs and restaurants are more cozy and have a better atmosphere. I personaly prefer going out in Leblon than in Copacabana or in Ipanema. Same when I go the the beach in Rio: Leblon is the best one in my opinion.
