Sitting at 720 feet high, Urca Hill (Morro da Urca) is only half the height of Sugarloaf Mountain, but it is still higher in the sky than airplanes that are on their descent to Santos Dumont airport. This makes it a perfect plane spotting location in Rio. To get to Urca Hill, you have to take a cable car from Vermelha Beach and once on the hill you will find souvenir shops, restrooms and restaurants
