To truly appreciate Rio de Janeiro's geographical blessings one must visit the famous Christ the Redeemer statue on the top of Corcovado Mountain. The view of Rio's many bays,beaches, mountains and hills from far above was to me quite surreal almost like a giant postcard...More

Imagine you're climbing to the top of a traffic cone. It starts off nice and wide and then it's really tiny at the top - that's what it's like to get to the top of Corocvado to get to Christ Statue. Go first thing in...More

In Rio we have Uber and other sites and also many taxis in the streets. It is possible to visit both in one day, but tou have to begin early in the morning because of the crowds only in the weekends and holidays.
