You’ll find historical spots, spectacular views, a beautiful waterfall, a small chapel and unusual trees in this dense, tropical national park, probably best explored by jeep tour.

Went to the park for a couple of hours on a Monday morning and we saw monkeys. The waterfall was amazing too. Definitely worth checking out if you have time in Rio.

The extent of the forest was huge and unexpected so close to the city. Lovely to see the locals using the falls to swim. It was good to have visited as part of a tour because the guide can point out more. Worth a visit...More

Lots to see in this park including beautiful waterfalls. It was a very hot day, so we mostly saw the park from the car.

Yes, but not very often. It's better to take a private car.

I don't think it's necessary to get a guide. If you're a runner, once you get in the park, follow the signs and see where the running lanes are. There are a few, and some go by beautiful waterfalls. Enjoy it.
