Located on the outskirts of Rio, this huge park is wonderful and for an entry ticket of R$ 15/-, I would say it is a fair deal. Big collection of flora and fauna, nice gardens, cafe etc. Great place to spend an afternoon!

We spent an entire morning walking around every corner of this garden and we loved it. I think this place is one of the must-see locations in Rio and it's really easy to get there from the main beaches of the city and back using the bus lines 584/583.

We were very impressed by the support to public with dissabilities... we did not bring my mothers wheelchair and they provided us with one. The garden is huge, with nice parts. We loved the Sagui monkeys apparently the smallest in the world, they are free and normally are around the coffee shop. Incredible interactions with them.

I went there on a week day, about 10 AM, so there was not much people and I could really recharge, being in contact with some of the most beautiful trees and plants from various parts of the world, and a lot of birds as well. In a hot city such as Rio (and polluted, as all big cities are),... More

Big botanical garden with wonderful greenery. Giant lotus leafs from amazon were highlight, as well as the orchid collection. Great views of Christ the redeemer from the garden... entrance was 15 real only. Rose garden did not have any roses however there was plenty of beauty around therefore I still give it 5 stars. Wish they had bike rentals there... More

This is quite a large garden so be prepared for a lot of walking. Its also very hot in Rio so it will be tiring. Their Japanese Garden isn't as good as some but they have a very nice little cafe/restaurant. Not the easiest place to get to by bus but I believe the underground goes there.

Beautiful gardens, large variety of trees and plants! Excellent for those interested in flora and fauna! What I loved was the wildlife....there is a turtle pond at the front of the botanical gardens. Inside the gardens there are lots of birds and you can see monkeys jumping between trees etc. They were beautiful and so interesting to watch! For an... More
