Fantastic visit to the very interesting and beautiful gardens which form a central attraction in what is the biggest urban tropical habitat in the world.

We went in Winter to the gardens, and they were so beautiful. I can imagine there would be a lot nicer flowers in the summer, including the large lily pads on the pond which were not here in the Winter.

Great botanival garden, established with the help of Chinese gardeners. Incredible collection of orchids and other exotic plants. Not to miss while being in Rio.

The Botanic Garden is right in the middle of Rio. Easy to access, as you step inside it feel like you've been sent outside the city. You can see monkeys, birds and small animals, as well as a gigantic amout of different plants species. And...More
