We went at sunset and weren't disappointed!! What a view, get there 45min before sunset to get an unobstructed view, and bring a jacket as the wind makes it wuite chilly as the sun sets. Worth every cent!

it sure is a must-see on a trip to Rio de Janeiro. It is great to go up there and have this amazing view of the city. you have to pay attention though to see if the day you are going is not a very busy day. Beacuse when that place is too full, it could totally backfire and be... More

If you are in Rio, must visit the Sugarloaf Mountain... and if it's a sunny day... on the way down, should try going down through the trails!! Enjoy the nature around. Great view, great vibes!

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

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.”
