    Awesome place and view! Try and arrive as early as possible to avoid big crowds in the cable cars and get the best shots at the top. A tip for foreign visitors: everything is way costy up there.

    While in Rio you must go to Sugarloaf Mountain. It has beautiful views of the entire city. It was so beautiful that we ended up being happy it wasn't a crystal clear day. Read more

    To reach the top, there's a cable car (arrives after every 20 minutes or so) to give you amazing panoramic views of the city.

    Vá sem pressa. Pegue um banco, estique as pernas e tome uma cervejinha apreciando a vista. // Take your time. Grab a seat, stretch your legs and drink a beer enjoying the view.

    great spot for photos - especially around dusk. the mountain Urca, next to it, is where you should get a helicopter ride around Açúcar and the beaches and around Cristo. well worth it.

    Go in the late afternoon to watch the sun set behind Christ the Redeemer Statue. The lines aren't too bad to go up around that time either.

    Try to visit on both a sunny and a rainy day. Clouds and rain leave their own signature on the pretty Rio landscape (watching Cristo Redentor float into and out of sight behind the clouds is surreal).

    The Sugarloaf Mountain is Rio de Janeiro’s trademark, and without a doubt, one of the most visited tourist spots in Brazil. Avenida. Pasteur, 520

    It is one of only a few mountains in the world that rises so quickly straight up from the water.
