Stay in an Apartment 2 blocks from Barra beach & and Train Jiu-Jitsu in Rio: BJJ accommodation with Connection Rio

Did you know about our new apartment only two blocks from Barra beach? It’s on a lively street with a wide range of cafes, bars and restaurants, close to travel links that serve the whole city, and a 30-second walk from the original Gracie Barra jiu-jitsu gym.

The apartment, which is one floor up from street level on a leafy, tree-lined street, comprises a dorm room that sleeps up to 4 people, a private room that doubles as a twin, and a large en-suite private room that is perfect for a couple or someone who prefers to have their own space.

Barra beach is a beautiful 18km-long swathe of golden-white sand, which is a hotspot for surfing and kite surfing. The famous Praia do Pepe is only a 300m walk along the each, which is lined with kiosks perfect for stopping and enjoying a cool drink or a snack.
The beach is a great place to relax between training sessions, or to hang out at after a hard week in the gym. It’s perfect for meeting new friends, socialising, topping up on the tan and enjoying the many water sports on offer.
And for you acai fans, the best places to get your fix are only metres away! Choose from the famous Bibi Sucos, with signed photos of Rickson and Renzo Gracie on the walls and a favourite among BJJ competitors and MMA fighters, to the smaller independant suco stands.
