Nice place to go on a hot afternoon and enjoy the forest and the cool air. The falls are very pretty too.

Great walks through the forests with lots of trails for all levels of walkers. Car or bus up the hill and make sure you bring drinking water. Great views for camera.

It's surreal and so beautiful. .. the waterfall is majestic and saw huge spiders too... so not for squeamish people. .. The forest keeps the temperatures comfortable.

We did a 4 hour jeep tour and the forest was a very welcome relief from Rio's heat, noise and pre-carnival nonsense. Lovely forest with waterfalls and some small wildlife. The jeep tour does offer an accessible option.

Being in the rain forest was magical. The plants and trees were magnificent. There is also a water fall midway in that is lovely and great for photos!

We drove to this park wanting to climb to the top of Pico da Tijuca. What a surprising find. It was a day with light rain, but walking through the trees was very nice and not as hot as it could be on a sunny day. Definitely stop at the visitor center to see the three dimensional park model and... More
