Rhubarb liks a cooler climate but plenty of sun. If your climate is warmer, I'd be looking at somewhere with morning sun only but lots of it and waya from bricks walls and other surfaces that reflect heat. And protected from coastal salt and wind.
As it also likes water, a flat garden bed enriched with organic matter would help the water soak in.
