It took 2 large cable cars to reach Sugarloaf Mountain. The view of Copacobana was amazing! From the top there is an option to ride a helicopter which takes you around tourist spots with style and for a fee

Go at sunset. Plentiful parking if you have a car. No idea about public transport, sorry! Food and drinks available on the mountain, as well as gifts!
