Laid-back meets luxurious, it's no surprise that Leblon demands some of Latin America's highest rents. Want to live the high life? With Leblon vacation rentals you can unlock access to a host of condos and apartments in the heart of the Zona Sul strip.

From the beach to the bar in Leblon

Locals make a beeline for Praia do Leblon, a family-friendly beach lined with lush palms and a mosaic promenade. If sunshine and sand are top priorities, snap up Leblon vacation rentals just steps from the sand. You can also cross the canal and wander down to Ipanema, another of Rio's signature beaches. Held in a sun-dappled plaza, the Hippie Fair is a local market filled with artisan jewelry, handicrafts, clothing and more. It also serves up some of Rio's best street food. For nightlife, head to Cobal do Leblon, an upbeat square flanked by bars and cocktail lounges.

Dance the night away in Leblon

Rio is famous for its colorful street art and there's no better place to discover the movement than Homegrown. The avant-garde gallery sits in the heart of Ipanema and is brimming with original works from local Brazilian artists. For a unique night out, score tickets to the Vinicius Show Bar. The intimate venue has been hosting live bossa nova and samba shows since 1989. No doubt you'll hear a few renditions of The Girl from Ipanema. Teatro do Leblon is another grassroots venue known for its contemporary shows.

December marks the beginning of high season in Rio de Janeiro. You'll enjoy clear skies, sultry temperatures and a fantastic line-up of festivals. Carnival sees the city explode with street parades, samba parties and lavish costumes. Crowds soar in the lead up to Fat Tuesday, so if you're planning to attend the party be sure to secure Leblon vacation rentals well in advance and don't forget your sequins and feather boas.
