An impressive place with excellent grass and dirt tracks, it runs the best horses in the nation. Hang gliding in Rio de Janeiro started in the mids and quickly proved to be well-suited for this town, because of its geography: steep mountains encounter the Atlantic Ocean, which provide excellent take-off locations and great landing zones on the beach. One of the most popular sea sports in the city is yachting.

Though the most exclusive and interesting is probably the Rio Yacht club, where high society makes it a point to congregate. Most yacht clubs are open to members only and gate crashing is not easy.

In Rio de Janeiro, buses are the main form of public transportation. There are nearly municipal bus lines serving over four million passengers every day, in addition to intercity lines. Although cheap and frequent, Rio's transportation policy has been moving towards trains and subway in order to reduce surface congestion and increase carrier capacity.

The trams are the first in the world to use a combination of ground-level power supply APS and on-board supercapacitor energy storage SRS , in order to eliminate overhead lines along the entire route. These buses run several routes, the main being from Centro through Botafogo, Copacabana and Ipanema to Leblon and vice versa , and from the International Airport to Barra, through the beach road.
The buses also run more frequently during the rush hours in the morning and evening. Going in the direction of Centro city center , the bus can be flagged down on the beach road buses with plaques showing "Castelo". There is a traditional boat as well as several "fast cat" hydrofoil boats.
Rio de Janeiro has the oldest operating electric tramway in Brazil and South America,  now mainly used by tourists and less by daily commuters.

The tram cars which are currently in operation are Brazilian-built, are of the cross-bench open sided design, and are fitted with trolley poles. After a derail occurred on 28 August ,  which left seven dead, tram service was suspended to improve the system, and would be reopened in , just before the FIFA World Cup but after postponements it was finally reopened in July Driving in Rio de Janeiro, as in most large cities of Brazil, might not be the best choice because of the large car fleet.
