Rio’s sparkling waterfront attracts hordes of visitors to Brazil each year.

Relax on scenic drive to see Botafogo Beach, Flamengo Park and the remarkable Aterro -- a park on the edge of Guanabarra Bay featuring monuments, playgrounds, museums and a marina, all on reclaimed land. Tons of earth were dumped into the bay and the park was built on top.

The next stop is at Praia Vermelha in the Urca District.

A cable car will transport you in two stages to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain. Descending the mountain, you’ll re-board the coach and enjoy a relaxing ride past some of Rio’s fabulous sweeping beaches: Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon.


Tour is available to guests with flights departing after 8pm. If you have already purchased an airport transfer with your cruise booking, you will be refunded onboard, as this excursion already includes a transfer. Expect heavy traffic congestion and delays. Expect long lines at the cable car.

To fully participate may require leisurely walking over primarily even surfaces. Not advisable for guests using a wheelchair as the sites are not wheelchair accessible.
