Of course everyone who goes to Rio wants to go to the Christ statue. It is a great place to visit and easy to get to from the city. I took the city bus from Capacabana because its cheap, it does take about 4 min from the beach a taxi would be 20 or less but riding the bus you get to experience more of the city. At the base of the mountain you will take a cable car to the top ($32) br. and the statue or you pay alot of money and take a car tour of the mountain. The view from the statue site in amazing and not to be missed.
