About Cristo Redentor On Corcovado, Rio De Janeiro

Cristo Redentor On Corcovado, Rio De Janeiro Reviews

  • An absolute must see when visiting Rio de Janeiro. Take the train to the top, enjoy the ride and views. Have a snack, full meal or a cold beer at one of the many small cafes at the top. Fabulous views and photo opportunities. ALWAYS busy, so plan to spend some time. Lots of tours available, but we always go by ourselves to get extra time and work on our own schedule. The electric cog railway up the mountain and back is well worth it. Great scenery, and fabulous views from the top. *** Plan your trip for a clear day***. The best time is late morning to early afternoon when any fog is usually burned off.

  • One of our best experiences in South America. We hiked up (2.5 hours) from the Botonic Gardens to the top which was worth the views. Only downside was that it was sunny at the top when we started the trek but it was cloudy when we arrived. The clouds cleared a bit and we got some amazing pictures.

  • It's a must see attraction. Lots of tourists, as always. Great view. You have the option to get a van or the train to Corcovado. I'd recommend getting the train for a better experience. Go early so you don't need to wait too long in the queue, or buy online, if possible.

  • It's very beautiful surrounded by nature but is very crowded, meaning by squishy. The place seems very poor, but it's beauty seems rich. Watch out for pocket pickers there are quite a few there and be safe! Hiking to the top is the most tiring but more empty. The statue is barely at sight because of the people on the top.

  • A definite must visit if you are in Rio! The views are amazing specially on a clear day! Taking the tram up the mountain is an experience of its own with nice forest views. The statute is breathtaking! Expect to see a lot of tourist up there! Nice souvenir gift shops up there as well!
