I am a tour guide and usually go there all the time. The renovation was done perfectly well. It is now more comfortable for guests. It was really a great improvement. I do recommend this tour.

Amazing landscape, but don't go if it's cloudy. Awesome!! Go up to the top, it might be kinda scary but it is worth every second.

This is probably the best view of the gorgeous Rio! If you get there around 4 or 5pm you're guaranteed to see the sunset and best view of the day. I advise everyone to spend a little more money and get the fast pass up the mountain, worth the money than sitting in the heat in line!

Great place ! You can't miss it if you come to Rio. Have lunch in Urca beach and around 3;30pm take the cable car visit the sites and wait for the sunset. Especially if you have a great company ! Enjoy !

I made trip to Sugarloaf because of the very positive comments in Trip Advisers. Thanks to all contributors. The view was indeed awesome. It was a Sunday morning, and an aerobics event was ongoing. The energy from the group coupled with the majestic feel was fantastic!

I thought i better look at this tourist attraction as everyone was ragging on about how good it was. I joined a shuttle bus tour which was quite good but the thing was over too quickly. Good views of the city and worth a visit.

I'm glad we did this trip but it is very crowded and expect to spend a lot of time in a queue. The views are amazing and the ride in the cable car is nice. It can be very hot standing in the line.

Staying in Urca

Neighborhood Profile
Urca is one of the oldest areas in Rio. Known for its incredible views of the city, the neighbourhood runs along Guanabara bay, providing visitors with an opportunity to watch the sunset from one of Rio’s greatest natural treasures: Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de Acucar). It is said that the locals in Urca are “bon vivant,” which is one of the reasons the area attracts people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect place to take a stroll and appreciate the area’s beautiful architecture, enjoy a cocktail and some delicious seafood pastries at a bar, or bring a bottle of wine and enjoy it while sitting anywhere along the stone seawall known as the “mureta.”
