  • It's a little clue, has 2,500 meters long, round trip, with distance marking every 50 metres on level ground and asphalt, with Urca Hill on one side and the Red Beach on the other, with one of the most breathtaking views of the river : Urca Hill, Sugarloaf and a huge sea! It's a safe place, cool to see that there mingling and birds and I've seen a big iguana! But this only in the days of little movement. Worth the visit and then go get a caipirinha or beer on wall of Urca or even in the Military circle of Red beach. I think a tour not to be missed, for beauty and tourist attraction. And enough to say that all you see is violence in Rio. You can see a spectacular beauty sung in verse and prose. I live here.

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.
