Tips from locals
Sugarloaf Mountain is a peak situated in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, at the mouth of Guanabara Bay on a peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean. Rising 396 m above the harbor, its name is said to refer to its resemblance to the traditional shape of concentrated refined loaf sugar.
Take a fascinating cable car ride to see stunning views over Rio from this incredible mountain.
The view of this place is amazing. You don't need a tour guide to visit it but try to go earlier as you can because the whole year is a lot of people visiting this place.

“A hot spot for good restaurants and bars as well. Have lunch/ dinner at Puro or Jojo's and at night go up the road to the bars on rua Pacheco Leao. Or to have a typical Brazilian meal/ delicious meat, go to Rubayat, the restaurant where you look out over horse races at the inner city jockey club. In the same area you have the beautiful open-for-all art school Parque lage which is worth a visit, they have recently opened a good relaxed restaurant inside. ”
