Very nice place to visit, we've been there: me and three friends, and this place is awesome. A minor problem was that not everything is doubled in English and the same problem for personnel—as it is usual in Brazil. But plants are extremely beautiful, as well as the garden itself.

Nice for pictures, a quiet place with a lot of trees and small wild animals. Few short tracks. It is a wonderfull place to relax.

Special place with beautiful places to rest, to take pictures, to play. But the infrastructure is not so good in terms of place to eat and things. Even so, you can find it around. You need to pay to entry and also to parking, but it works and a very aligned price. Go early!

This place is one of the big things D João the 6th made in Brasil Walking through the many alleys and letting your mind travel with time is magical! Besides, you will get to know many species of Brazilian plants!

Spent a long morning here and arrived before the sun was at it's full strength thankfully. Stunning gardens that are maintained meticulously. Not everyone's idea of a place to visit in Rio, but if you have time try and fit it in!

Its a huge very mature garden . Its a shame there are no maps provided as I'm sure we missed lots. My favorite section is the Palm Groves. Here there are hundreds of different mature specimens. We walked the elegant palm lined center lane and marveled at the wonderful mature trees. There are huge shady areas with towering bamboos. We... More

The Botanical Garden of Rio is one of those breathless places, its not so taken care like the Brooklyn, because even it is in the middle of the city, it blends with the Tijuca Forest and its like an extension of the jungle. I would recommend to take a look at the orchid expesiotion when available, also the Ipê blooming... More
