I really enjoyed the Botanical Gardens. The grounds are well kept and the various plants and waterfalls are absolutely breathtaking. This was one of my favorite sites in Rio and the gift shop has very helpful and friendly staff and real high quality items. Not the crap you see in Copa and Ipanema.

We were not thrilled but perhaps because many things were not blooming as it was winter. We enjoyed the cactus garden but the wait at the cafeteria was way too long to eat.

Since I visited in the winter I wasn't super impressed with the flora and fauna, but this is a great place to see monkeys very close up. There are tons of paths for exploring, though it also seems to be a very popular place to have pregnancy photos taken. There were pregnant bellies EVERYWHERE. must be a brazilian thing!

Large garden in the middle of the city that offers peace and quiet from the sometimes frenetic pace. It does not compare to some of the great gardens in other parts of the world like the Singapore Botanical Garden or London's Kew Garden. Would only visit if you have time left on your hands.

This place is amazing! So beautiful and well worth a visit! It's also huge and would recommend a map while walking around ;) The price in was reasonable and there is a lovely little cafe near the entrance. There is also a great big greenhouse in the centre showing people the different types of herbs, plants being used for medicinal... More
