Let's say you arrived to the cable car booth. Don't enter. Follow in the direction of the sea and before you reach the sand turn left. Pass the school and follow the path that runs close to the sea, called Pista Claudio Coutinho. If you...More

The tram is two parts and has great views at the top. Our day was cloudy, but the position is great and enjoyable regardless. Watch for the tiny monkeys which are hanging out everywhere.

greatest natural treasures: Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de
Acucar). It is said that the locals in Urca are “bon

people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect

No - there was no construction when I was there 3 weeks ago. Everything is clean and well maintained at the top! A highlight of the trip!

You can walk to Morro da Urca, the first Hill. About half an hour to reach the summit. It's safe and absolutely free. The view from Morro da Urca is amazing, meaning that you don't need to go to the Sugar Loaf to enjoy the... More

As far as I got it the price is reduced then. Unfortunately, I don't remember the difference, because we booked both sections for 80 reales. I am sure, you will enjoy the walk there and see many monkeys on your way.
