I agree with most of the other reviews here, the park is a lovely sanctuary in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Brazil. The walk is challenging and only do it if you're fit and healthy. The park's dense beauty is unfortunately also where danger lurks. As my friend and I neared the top of our hike, we... More

This is one of my favorites in Rio! We went to the botanical garden first, but we definitely liked this park better. It has this really cool building that gives a nice picture, but we realized it was so much more to see. It has a cave with aquarium with fish in it, a tower and other caves. It was... More

I was suffering from gout having binged on so much meat so chose the Jeep tour, then ended up walking for 1-1/2 hrs, great alternate view of Corcavada. A typical botanic gardens worth the walk. The bonus came at the end, as the tour included driving up and up and up through a national park ending up at the "Chinese... More

At the north end of the Botanical Garden near the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon, you can enjoy the pleasure of this secret place like a private Pavillon inside the National Parc of Tijuca at the foot of Christ Redeemer . Nicely kept, a pleasent fountain in the middle of the Arcades that host a School of Visual Arts and a... More

Totally recommend hiking to the top of Christ Redeemer from here! Especially if you want to avoid the crowds and the price of the shuttles! It's a really beautiful hike to the top! Hard work so don't go if your not fit enough! You will face a bit of a rock face climb at one point near the top, but... More

Pargue Lage is a beautiful and picturesque park sitting at the foot of the Corcovado Mountain. There also is a cafe and restaurant on the grounds where you can grab a bite to eat before hiking up to see Christ the Redeemer. While strolling through the park you also can get a glimpse of monkeys playing in the trees.

I came upon this park by accident getting off of the bus stop a bit early heading to the Botanical Gardens and I am so glad I did. It is beautiful scenery with optimum photo ops and a pool side view inside the restaurant.

One of my favorite spots in Rio, and I lived there! Go early and enjoy a breakfast. Even the Thai salad is the best in town! I should know as I lived in Bangkok! You can even hike up Christ the Redemer from the park. Just a nice place to hang out. GO!
