“Workation”: Rio de Janeiro is among the 10 best cities in the world to combine remote work and leisure

Rio de Janeiro is among the 10 best cities in the world for “workation”, a trend that combines work with leisure travel. The capital of Rio de Janeiro ranked 6th on the list and stands out for its climate, accommodation, transport and subsistence.

The data is part of the survey prepared by IWG – a company focused on flexible work spaces, such as coworking.

According to the research, 88% of hybrid workers worked from locations far from their headquarters in 2022, while 57% extended their vacations by working directly from the destinations to which they were traveling.

The study also highlights the benefits most cited by interviewees. The balance between personal life and work is mentioned by 76%, while the possibility of spending more time with friends and family was mentioned by 52%, while 47% highlighted saving money by traveling on less busy days and 30% enjoying longer vacations.

In addition to the good performance due to gastronomic diversity, with more than 15 thousand bars and restaurants, the IWG highlights biodiversity, made up of the Atlantic Forest, beaches and mobility, with a transport system that includes buses, subways, BRT, VLT and train.

The first place in the ranking was Barcelona for its cultural scene, architecture and abundant sunlight. Secondly, Toronto, with more than eight thousand restaurants, achieved high scores for its accommodations.
