Beautiful trails, waterfalls, birds, views, all under a canopy of rain forest that makes you feel like you're a hundred miles from the busy-ness of Rio. A great half day of exploring.

We're from Europe, so for us this was a real treat, as we don't have this type of tropical nature back home. We went with a guide, started early morning and spent 3-4 hours there, but you can make it a whole day. We went hiking, saw some caves, waterfalls and great nature.highly recomended!

WE went with a guide on this trip along with the garden. The park is impressive is size and it was a nice change from the beach. Really just rode through and stopped at some key spots. Worth it but not in place of some other more interesting sites in Rio

I came to the park with a friend & her family, so they drove & showed me the sights, which isn't much help to the majority of Tripadvisor. You can easily spend a day here wandering up into the park along the tracks & the waterfalls are pretty amazing, especially in the heat. I wouldn't say it was a mindblowing... More

This park reminds me of the jungles in Africa but in the city in this instance. it was an awesome experience driving through the park and eventually taking the trail. The hiking is challenging enough and the climbing getting to the Pico de Tijuca is even more difficult but it´s worth every drop of sweat. I was told it´s the... More

Awesome hike- challenging and steep- get ready to get your hands dirty if you hike Corcovado, and brin plenty of mosquito repellent. Beautiful park. The monkeys are friendly and love bananas ;)

Finding information on getting to the National Park without getting on a jeep tour is difficult so I hope this helps. We took a taxi to the park as we are short on time but it is possible to get a bus there if you research lines and stops before. We asked the taxi driver to take us to Alto... More

Its a big park, and plenty of hiking to do if you wish. The views are spectacular in some places. If you want to see it by car, I recommend hiring a cab for a couple of hours. The costs are fairly reasonable (keep the meter running).
