Overall I preferred vertical Rio and sugarloaf... but the views were amazing and will never forget this experience even if a little sketchy. You get a taxi to take you to the main square of the favela (which is basically off the main road). We...More

This is definitely worth hiking up to, although if you are not used to the heat it can be challenging. It's easy to find the start of the hike, if you are on Ipanema beach look right and you will see a Sheraton hotel. Follow...More
