Peaceful haven in Rio

I visit the Botanical Garden every time I go to Rio. I went twice this past trip. Many beautiful paths to take so it doesn't see crowded even on a busy day.

It's really not expensive and if you looking for a place to relax and enjoy the quiet for a while this is the place to be. It's also nice to see how Brazilians act in their everyday life which is really interesting.

The well-kept old garden with many great plants. Great place to walk and rest. It should be kept together food and drink. Buying on the spot impossible.

The stroll we took is memorable. We went there immediately after it rained, and the smell was really refreshing. The ride from Santa Tereza to the part was an outing in itself! There are no restaurants in the garden, you may want to take some snacks and drinks and make a picnic out of it. The park is clean and... More

Cheap option when in need to take a break from the traffic. Entrance costs 9 reais and allows you full access to the park. There's plenty of plants but not that many animals to see like birds or such. Not being an expert on plants the part I preferred were surely the cute monkeys that actually strike poses for your...

Just a lovely place to walk round and explore, particularly if you need a break from the frantic chaos of Copacabana
