This garden was recommended by some local friends we were working with. However, we found it felt more like a sprawling park then a botanical garden - more suited for a leisurely stroll and maybe a picnic as opposed to a sightseeing attraction. We went during September, and not much was in bloom. It was largely guesswork to figure out... More

Picked up a few extra species of birds here. Arrived by taxi and we spent a lovely time walking around and finding the birds and admiring the flowers.

A lush green Botanical garden, Imperial Palms, monkeys... all tropical paradise in Rio de Janeiro. If you are lucky to see an Orchid Show, than it will be even better!

The area where the gardens are is very big and in between different gardens it is quite a walk with nothing to see in between. They have a few cool features though like an orchid house and a dislay of several flesh-eating plants.

These gardens right in the heart of the city are beautifully laid out with avenues of majestic palms. Particularly interesting are the orchid gardens with a very extensive display of different varieties. The site was originally a munitions factory and there are historic remains scattered around. Well worth a visit even if you are only a half-hearted horticulturalist

First of all, there is nothing to see in September, nothing is in bloom. Second of all, the women at the ticket booth don't speak any English. Which is to be expected, but I knew a little Portuguese. All this woman had to do was take my 20 reais and make change. The entry was 7 reais. She had obviously... More

We spent hours there! The lanes of Palm trees were just breathtaking! Make sure you see the orchid and bromiliad displays.

A expansive botanical garden with many unusual plants. The labeling of the plants is not ideal and a garden tour may have been more helpful.

It was hot and we visited this very nice garden. If you have gardens in your homeland then i don't think this place is a must. But worth a pretty stroll if your looking for something relaxing to do.
