If I had to pick only one place in Rio to visit before I die this place would definitely be Pista Claudio Coutinho.
Pista Claudio Coutinho is an oceanside pathway located between Morro da Urca (the first hill of Sugar Loaf ) and Praia Vermelha ocean. It is located in a very safe area, in Urca neighborhood, just inside a military area.
I like to go there for so many different reasons. I like to go there for running, or just for a leisure walk, I like to go there to take photographs, with my camera, or with my eyes. I like to go there to breath some fresh air. That’s why I consider it my treasure place in Rio.
Those pictures I took a couple of weekends ago when I took my mother for the first time there. She was delighted with the beautiful landscape and I got very happy to provide her this moment of pleasure for being close to nature.
If you are visiting Rio and are in need of some quiet moment close to nature, that’s the place to go. As it is quite close to Sugar Loaf, you can visit both in the same day.
