  • The trail is fairly easy, we went with the kids, we stayed at the πão of sugar to watch the sunset and came down to cable car. Too beautiful! I highly recommend!!

  • Beautiful place at the foot of pão de açucar, beautiful for photos and for a walk. Breathtaking scenery. Very quiet and, if you want, you can still make a trail to the cable car.

  • The Claudio Coutinho Trail, named after a famous Brazilian National Soccer Team coach, is a nice place to jog or simply strecht your legs. Enjoy the landscape, the nice view and fresher air.  more »

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
