Take a local taxi to the train station and then take the train up. It is scenic and also cost effective. You can spend as much time as you need up there and the views are brilliant.

Check the live streaming camera at the Corcovado official web site to confirm weather and visibility conditions. Took the official van from the Copacabana beach. Great attraction! Must see the view from the top.

The Cristo is, of course, amazing to see and worth the trip up Corcovado to do so. However, try to go as early in the morning as possible (it opens around 8/8:30am, I think) and on a weekday to avoid the crowds. Also worth it to buy your ticket the day of so that you can make sure you have... More

It was amazing to finally see Cristo Redentor! We got the train up the mountain after getting the metro and then the bus from Centro. You can only pay with debit or credit card, they do not accept cash! We were given a time slot to board, so we waited around 45min for our time. It was really windy up... More

For a clear and no clouds days is one of the best things to do in Rio. The view of this wonderful city is astonishing. You can find people from every part of the world looking for the same view as yours. But it's amazing. The view and the statue it's really impressive.

I stop and pray for a moment and thanking GOD, that my dream come true. I pray for the health of my family and safe journey with my friends,... More

We had an excellent afternoon visiting Cristo Redentor. We chose to go on the train which was a great experience in itself and not much more than the van but with a lot more charm. It takes you through the Tijuana forest which was beautiful. The statue is awesome and actually quite imposing, almost intimidating! It is huge and looking... More
