😠 Run away from this famous destination trap! Crime is committed day light without police intervention. The beach water a lot times is highly contaminated by fecal bacteria, the city still dumping sewer water into the ocean.

👍👍 Fantastic hike for a breathtaking view of Rio de Janeiro. Aim to arrive early, at 8am, to get a quick parking space in the lot next to the entrance. The trail is beautiful and full of vegetation and animals. Tip: there's no shadow in the top! Bring water and sun protection.
