SUGAR LOAF MOUNTAIN COMPLEX RIO DE JANEIRO BRAZIL:

The Sugar Loaf Mountain complex, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, also offers the posibility of doing some trekking. There are two official trekking lanes open -at the top and at the base of the hills.

At the base of Morro da Urca, or Urca hill, you will find a very enjoyable trekking path called “Pista Cláudio Coutinho”, or Claudio Coutinho’s Lane. It’s a lane that goes along the base of the Urca Mountain. As you go along you will be able to appreciate some small monkeys and typicall Brazilian flora.

About one million people visit the Sugar loaf Mountain, Rio de Janeiro, every year. You reach it by Av. Pasteur, it’s just 10 minute away from Copacabana, and a half hour ride from the rest of the southern neighobourhoods of Rio de Janeiro: Botafogo, Flamengo, Leblon and Ipanema.

SUGAR LOAF MOUNTAIN URCA NEIGHBOURHOOD RIO DE JANEIRO BRAZIL:

The Sugar Loaf mountain is located at Urca neighbourhood, one of Rio’s most pintoresc neighborhoods. With six squares and only 16 streets, it is home to one of Rio’s most famous postcards, the Sugarloaf (Pão de Açúcar).

In this neighoburhood there are some fine attractions like the art-deco houses from the early 20th century and the old Casino on the beach, all of these surrounded by the beautyfull Guanabara Bay. A few artists live here, including singer Roberto Carlos (known as the King in Brazil, like Elvis in the U.S.).

In Urca, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, we also find three beaches of Rio de Janeiro, these are: Praia Vermelha at the base of the Sugar Loaf Mountain, an ideal stop after the cable car tour, Praia de Fora and Praia da Urca.

Urca has an important historical role, this is where Estácio de Sá founded Rio de Janeiro in 1565. The oldest construction still standing is the São João Fortress, dating of 1618. It was renovated in 1872, in order to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Brazil’s independence. It’s 15 cannons were installed for the ocation.

IPANEMA BEACH COASTLINE 2,5 KM OF SAND AND WATER

IPANEMA BEACH COASTLINE 2,5 KM OF SAND AND WATER

The area of what is Ipanema today belonged to José Antonio Moreira Filho, the Barão de Ipanema.

Ipanema means “bad water” in Indian dialect, but since the name derived from the baron, it has nothing to do with the clear blue sea and white sands of this beach.

At Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, you will find a legendary beach with a surfspot included, a bustling nightlife and restaurants to write home about.

IPANEMA BOSSA NOVA:

Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro, is the birthplace of Bossa Nova. The whole world learned about it with hit song “The Girl from Ipanema” by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinícius de Morais, both Ipanema residents.

The Garota the Ipanema Restaurant is located at Rua Vinícius de Moraes street, 49 (Ipanema). Telephone: (21) 2523-3787

IPANEMA TRENDS AND NIGHTLIFE:

Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is always setting new trends, and what happens here reverberates throughout the country. Take Banda de Ipanema, for instance. What started as a celebration among a few dozen friends ended up bringing a new life to Rio de Janeiro’s Street Carnival festivities. Today the parades attract as many as fifteen thousand, and many other neighborhoods have street bands of their own.

When the sun sets, the fun does not end at Ipanema. With an assortment of cafes, bars, and clubs there’s always something happening at night. Stroll around Praça da Paz, Baixo Farme and Baixo Quitéria. Watch a live music performance, crash a circuit party, sip a beer or fresh coconut under the stars at a beach kiosk.

Anyways, for the locals it has always been “Estadio Maracana”, (Maracana Stadium), and most probably will remain the same. The name Maracana comes from a bird of the region and also because thats the name of the neighobourhood where the stadium is located.

The world’s largest football stadium, Maracana, was built for World Cup IV, that was held in Rio in 1950. Brazil unfortunately lost to Uruguay that year, but today it’s the only nation in the world to hold 5 titles.

MARACANA STADIUM ACCESS:

The Maracana Stadium is located in the northern part of Rio de Janeiro. It’s access is very easy due to the metro and bus stations that are right in front of the building.
