Sugar Loaf Trip

Jump to last reply

Hello!

I am planning to take two taxis from Ipanema to Sugar Loaf with a group of 6. We are planning to arrive around 4:00pm and take the cable cars to the top for the sunset. Is 4 oclock on a Thursday a good time to make it up to the top for the sunset in time.

After going to the top of sugar loaf we plan to come back down and then take a taxi to Bar Urca. We will probably eat and drink there and then maybe head to another destination, bar, restaurant, beach...

Can anyone recommend another location that is close to Sugar Loaf & Bar Urca?

Are there a lot of taxis that pass Bar Urca? Will it be safe to travel around the area by taxi after sunset?

Thanks for the advice!
