Cláudio Coutinho Trail, Urca, Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil
Everyone loves this paved 2km trail winding along the southern contour of Morro do Urca. It’s a lush treed area, with the waves crashing on the rocks below.
Look out for families of marmosets with their gray fur, striped tails and tiny faces. To get there, walk 100m north along the edge of Praia Vermelha (with your back to the cable-car station) and you’ll see the entrance to the path straight ahead, just past the beach.
