Spent a long morning here and arrived before the sun was at it's full strength thankfully. Stunning gardens that are maintained meticulously. Not everyone's idea of a place to visit in Rio, but if you have time try and fit it in!

Its a huge very mature garden . Its a shame there are no maps provided as I'm sure we missed lots. My favorite section is the Palm Groves. Here there are hundreds of different mature specimens. We walked the elegant palm lined center lane and marveled at the wonderful mature trees. There are huge shady areas with towering bamboos. We... More

The Botanical Garden of Rio is one of those breathless places, its not so taken care like the Brooklyn, because even it is in the middle of the city, it blends with the Tijuca Forest and its like an extension of the jungle.

It's a really beautiful park with well kept gardens. It's a safe place to spend day with your family or just as a couple.

Just beautiful!! A must-see in Rio if you like plants. The tropical weather makes it perfect for such a large variety of plants to develop and grow. A long walk from Ipanema but doable. If not, grab a taxi or an Uber.
