It was nice on a Sunday afternoon. There was room to move around. I was afraid it would be packed like sardines, but it was not. The Classico bar was fun too. We had the papas Fritas and some caipirinhas. Good times.

The views from up the sugarloaf mountains are breathtaking!! This is by far the best vacation we have been too. It's definitely worth going up there and enjoy the view.

To visit Rio de Janeiro w/o taking in the Vistas atop Sugarloaf Mtn. is leaving a huge hole in fantastic memories. Don't rush, relax & enjoy, take in the beauty of Rio whether day or night. This one I've checked off my "bucket list" with a special twist! I spent most of the day on Sugarloaf Mtn. & noticed a... More

We walked from Copacabana beach over a steep hill to the foot of Sugarloaf then hiked up a forested path to get to the mid point cable car. The views of the city are spectacular and you get to see airplane after airplane below you bank and turn rapidly in order to land at the city airport. Well worth the... More

A must see. Apparently the lines become long at peak tourist times, so plan to go early or out of season (or ensure you're protected form the sun to stand in long lines). All that said, definitely worth the visit.

There is a nice wooded trail at the top. The views are really amazing. I went pretty early in the day, so it was not too crowded.

Great for the views, but not as iconic as Corcovado Christ the Redeemer (The Christ Statue). If you like 360º views of the city, this is the next best thing to a helicopter ride.

Staying in Urca

Neighbourhood Profile
Urca
Urca is one of the oldest areas in Rio. Known for its incredible views of the city, the neighbourhood runs along Guanabara bay, providing visitors with an opportunity to watch the sunset from one of Rio’s greatest natural treasures: Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de Acucar). It is said that the locals in Urca are “bon vivant,” which is one of the reasons the area attracts people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect place to take a stroll and appreciate the area’s beautiful architecture, enjoy a cocktail and some delicious seafood pastries at a bar, or bring a bottle of wine and enjoy it while sitting anywhere along the stone seawall known as the “mureta.”
