Very nice little trail on the side of the Urca/Sugarloaf. If you feel good enough you can even climb the Urca Hill in 20 mns. The entrance of the climbing trail is about half way of the Claudio Coutinho trail itself, it really worth it....More

Nice place for a walk with a great view to Baia de Guanabara. Unfortunely you have to keep your eyes opned because of burglars. That's the only reason any open space in Rio can't have 5 stars.

if you like nature, catch a glimpse of the sea and the mountains in just on place. You have an interesting view of Sugarloaf from a diffrent perspective and u can even climb the light track to the fist level of the mountain.

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together
harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where
all major companies house their offices. However, the

Response from Alexandre W | Reviewed this property |
