We went up early in the morning to avoid waiting queues and a too crowded experience. We felt this was the right decision; you will have an absolutely spectacular view overlooking the mesmerizing landscapes surrounding Pao de Acucar as long as the weather is clear. I recommend this over other "touristy" places in Rio. /L

Stunning view. Friendly staffs. The shops up there are a bit expensive. My kids age 2 and 3 loved to ride up in the cable car. This is a must to do half day trip in Rio.

This would have been amazing if it wasn't so foggy outside when we went. The fog took away all the amazing the views but I still appreciate what Sugarloaf had to offer nonetheless. This stop was part of the tour we booked from the hotel. They have restaurants (snacks) and restrooms at the top for refreshment. The cable car up... More

I am glad we visit the Sugarloaf Mountain. What a great views up there and it was amazing they built the cable car to take people to the top of the rock.

Patience re the wait for a cable car and the ascent to Sugarloaf leads to a heavenly reward, whether you believe in such a celestial place or not! This and Corcovado have cemented a vision of a beautiful Rio in our minds forever!

Amazing city view, but arrive early or you will be caught in lines that are HOURS long. There are two cable car rides to get to the top. A restaurant is at the first stop, and from all I have heard, it is good.

As a tour guide in Rio, I can only recommend that you do all the touring that you want during the day, and save the Sugar Loaf mountain for the last of the day. Yes, lines tend to be long from end of december to march, but don't you also stay in line for hours at Disney to see an... More

Staying in Urca

Neighborhood Profile
Urca
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.”
