And riding one of these little trains was one of the first things we did in Cabo Frio at night. It circulates through the main streets and you can get a brief idea of the place. We found it very fast for the price charged (R$8 per person, in 2016), but it is quite fun. Some circulate during the day. But at night it is always busier and livelier.
