October 8th, 2010 No comments

Of course you have Cristo Corcovado (www.corcovado.com.br) in Rua Cosme Velho, 513, cost like US$ 21 (R/.36) per person and open at 8:30 until 19;00 h you can do it by car or by Corcovado train, well also you can climb it but if you are going to climb do the other ones that I will write you, also you can go to (Sugarloaf Montain) Pão de Açucar (R/.44) US$ 26(http://www.bondinho.com.br/) that open at 8:00am until 21 hours. You can climb part of the Sugarloaf Montain if you want adventure. If you only have time to visit one of them I recommend you to visit the Cristo Corcovado that have a killing panoramic view of Rio. Also you can go to Jardim Botánico(Rio’s Botanical Garden) (http://www.jbrj.gov.br/) it´s really nice if you like plants and trees because it have a lot of species and it´s a very calm and relax place it´s open from 8 till 17 h. cost R/. 5 US$ 3. If you go take a pic in the big palm trees with the water fountain.
You should go to Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas (http://www.lagoarodrigodefreitas.com.br/conheca…) you will have a beautiful view of the lake and the Cristo Corcovado, there you can get something to drink like a caipirinha, agua de coco (coconut juice), etc if you go at night some of the places(kiosks) have bossanova shows. You also have Plaphitas Kitch it´s romantic and the menu is inspired by the cuisine of Amazonia it´s open everyday from 5pm.(http://www.palaphitakitch.com.br/ Av Epitacio Pessoa, s/no. – Quiosque 20 – Parque do Cantagalo)
