Bring your student ID to Brazil! It will save you soooo much money. The gondola up to Pao de Acucar is about $30 without student ID but only $15 with!

We went in noontime expecting a long queue but was surprised that there was no queue at all. The cable car ride is 62R Per person (return trip). View from sugar Loqf was amazing! There are dean toilets, snack bars and souvenir shops. Thought that the deck chairs were a lovely touch!

Your average tourist site with lots of shops, restaurants etc. be sure to get there early (before 10am) to avoid ginormous queues!

Great attraction! Great for all ages! Try to avoid the weekends. Go very early or in the late afternoon for a day and night views of the city with the sunset time.
