Located in the west part of the city, affluent Barra is visually stunning. With panoramic mountain views, aquamarine beaches, and acres of greenspace, Barra’s natural beauty will provide a spectacular backdrop for the 2016 Summer Games.
Hosting 20 different disciplines and showcasing half of the games’ athletes, the Barra Zone will be the center of the action in 2016. Barra is home to both Rio Olympic Park and the Olympic Village and will feature some of the most popular events, including basketball, diving, and swimming, just to name a few.
World-famous Copacabana is what many people envision of when they think of Rio; the long stretch of beach, friendly, fun-loving locals (known as Cariocas), open-air cafes, and lively dance halls ensure there is always something to do at any time of the day (or night)!
Copacabana Zone venues include Copacabana Stadium, which in the summer of 2016 will be filled with enthusiastic beach volleyball fans, Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas for rowing and cayak/canoe sprint, and Fort Copacabana, where thousands of fans will cheer on their hometown heroes in the rowing competitions. Other notable sports in Copacabana include triathlon, swimming (open water), and cycling.
Just North of Copacabana is the Maracanã Zone. Close to the city’s downtown core and Rio de Janeiro State University, the area has a promenade and bicycle path, attracting people to the area for both work and play.
Site of the opening and closing ceremonies, Maracanã Stadium will also play host to the World Cup Final in 2014. This area also boasts João Havelange Stadium and Maracanãzinho Arena. Fans of athletics, volleyball, and of course football, can look forward to spending time the popular Maracanã Zone.
Also in western Rio, and north of the Barra Zone, rests Deodoro. The most rural of all four zones, it offers a more suburban feel, with plenty of green space surrounding the venues, and is popular with younger Cariocas.
Among the many venues in Deodoro are the National Equestrian Center and X Park, which will house Olympic Mountain Bike Park, Olympic Whitewater Stadium, and Olympic BMX Center. As a result, the summer of 2016 will see Deodoro filled with an interesting blend of equine fans and extreme sports enthusiasts.
