Like they say, you haven't been to Rio if you haven't met Cristo! Go get a guide to get the full experience. Because of the information from our guide we truly enjoyed our trip.

The view is absolutely amazing. Take the train, it's a very nice ride inside the Atlantic forest. Try going in the early morning, otherwise it will be crowded.

Go early to cope with the heat and the crowds and the selfie sticks. We took the train up to the top and it was all part of the exciting experience.

The site is pretty well managed and you avoid super long lines generally. The platform around the monument only has limited space where you can actually photograph the entire statue. That space, naturally, becomes very crowded. But overall I felt like there was room to...More

Of course, this is a site to be seen. We visited through a tour that went into the rainforest as well. It is a very magical place. The views from Corcovado are spectacular. Check the weather beforehand! Clouds will put a damper on your photo...More

Corcovado is definitely a must visit regardless of ones region. It is simply awesome! I would suggest that you visit early before the crowds and the long lines. Take the train up it is a beautiful ride.

Hi. We are planning a visit to Rio next March/April. Does it make a big difference in crowds if you avoid Easter. We can either come middle March or Easter weekend. I am thinking the crowds will be crazy on Easter weekend but much less two weeks before - is that right? Thank you Jill

Hi, I have no experience of Easter visit, because we visit Cristo Retendor on November. But I agree that middle of March would be better.
Hi! I'm hoping to hit both Corcovado and Sugarloaf in the same day (a long day, I know, but our time in Rio will be limited). Are there taxi stands at Corcovado or maybe near Pargue Lage that we could use to get to Praia Vermelha?

In Rio we have Uber and other sites and also many taxis in the streets. It is possible to visit both in one day, but tou have to begin early in the morning because of the crowds only in the weekends and holidays.
