Photographer's Note

Po de Acar is a mountain located in the southeastern part of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro, right on the peninsula of Guanabara Bay
It is reached in only 3 minutes by taking 2 different cable cars, one that stops at Morro da Urca and the second takes you all the way up to Po de Acar or Sugarloaf as it is known to most.
The view from the top is more than spectacular and rewarding. The beach with the emerald waters that you see on the left hand side is the Praia Vermelha, a beach with very fine, golden sand and magnificent views to the mountain
You can also see the Fortaleza de So Joo and the memorial park
Only ten minutes away by car from Copacabana is a must visit when you are in Rio
