2-hour walk Thru flamengo park
Walk from Marina to Urca, along the coast, passing by Flamengo then Botafogo beach.

Sugar Loaf
Walk or cab to Urca to get there by noon. Catch a cable car to the two peaks. Take your time: on the first mountain, “Urca”, look for a bar called “Abençoado” and buy a bottle of bubbly (R$85). Champagne is never expensive when you have a good reason to open it. Take it to the chaise by the deck and enjoy the height of your trip, soaking it all in.
