Corcovado mountain has the best view of Rio. There can be a long wait for the tram ride to the top though. A van ride may be a faster but not as scenic way to the top

You can either trek, take a cab, or hop on the tram service to go up the Corcovado mountain. We took a cab which was the fastest. You can stop in between for good views of the wilderness. Catch glimpses of the little animals that look like skunks which are found in abundance on the route.

Another must visit destination. Cost 62Reais from the mini bus station on Copacabana beach. This is the BEST way to get up there, early in the morning to avoid ridiculous queues. Find out where this place is on Copacacaba beach and you will arrive in the most fast and efficient way to the steps next to Christ the Redeemer also... More

definitely worth a visit while in Rio but go as early as possible as it gets very busy and overcrowded. There are 240 steps to climb too

This is an iconic Rio site and it's like visiting the Statue of Liberty in New York. It's something you do especially if it's your first time. The statue is impressive and great views, but prepare yourself for long waits and big crowds. Even on a weekday in the off season, we were there 3 hours and we were only... More

Great views, and should really be done on the first or second day in Rio (for new visitors) to add to the appreciation of where everything is!

Use the Corcovado tram and travel through the forest to the entry point to the Christ redeemer sight. The trip is 55 real per adult and includes entrance to the mountain top.
