If you are looking for stunning views, this is where you want to go, but plan well ahead. From the heart of Copacobana it took about 45 minutes to get to the train via metro and bus. By the time we got there at 12:30 the next available train was not until 5:30pm when the sun was down. We had... More

Our tour guide convinced us we had to go very early in order to catch the first train at 7:30. He was correct. At first we had the entire site to ourselves, but then it started to get very crowded. We also saw that there could be a significant wait for subsequent trains.

The went with a tour group during the Olympics. We arrived at 9:40 am. We were supposed to be in the line for a 10:20 am van up to the Cristo. We were delayed until 10:40 am. During that time, I looked at a museum connected to the souvenir shop. It is upstairs. It has the history of biodiversity in... More

If you go to Rio you have to visit Christ The Redeemer. Be sure to visit on a clear day as the view of the Lagao (considered the "heart of Rio") is just unbelievable. When you take the train up sit on the side with two seats as you travel backwards up the mountain, you will have a great view.

We would definitely recommend hiking up to the top if you feel fit enough. It took about 1 hour 40 through the forest on an easy to follow route from Parque large. The route was quiet, a little challenging at times with clamps and chains to get up rocky parts but easy enough for most people who enjoy a hike.... More

Views are breathtaking, but if crowded it loses all its sense. Of course is a must, but nit as expected. Too much time invested for just 10' stay.

One of the best touristic points in Rio you cant miss it together with the Sugar Loaf. You cant miss Copacabana beach too

Of course being the month the Olympics were on and a nice day it was mental. We took the train up and that was a bit of a mission to be honest there are so many different ways to go up and it's not as well signposted as Sugarloaf.. Do recommend it but try aim for quiet season

Probably the one and only must see location in Rio. An amazing view and a spectacular statue. You just have to visit it. But it's a drag to get there, and it is packed with people. So much so, we could barely walk around it. Granted, it was during the Olympics, so maybe packed more than usual. it took us... More
