This is a must do while in Rio of course! We took a taxi from our Copacabana hotel to the mid level of Corcovado mountain. Our taxi driver waited for us for about 90 minutes. This cost us 120 reals for 4 people. Once at the mid level you can purchase tickets to the Statue (27 reals) and a van takes you up there. All well organized.
We were there around 9am in the morning and the crowds were not so bad. Our view was excellent as we had great weather. However after about an hour the clouds rolled in and we lost all visibility both to the statue (yes, you are in the clouds!) and to the city views. So you really need a clear day or clear moment to enjoy.
