This place is not to be missed in Rio! We had this place in mind as one of the last things we wanted to cover before our trip came to an end. We ended up having some buffer time and took a cab to this park. Pros: - Very quiet, tranquil and great for relaxing and calming the senses. -... More

The park was originally a sugar estate, it contains the original grand house and stables. You need good walking shoes and need to be fit if you want to walk up to the Corcovado National Park. There are many old trees, rooted around other trees. You’ll find branches roped around other tree branches There are small ponds and a waterfall.... More

This was a very pleasant surprise! The buildings and vistas are incredible, but it is the landscape that is so appealing. The size and quality of palm trees and other fauna make this a great escape. There is so much shade as you walk through the grounds that it stays comfortable even in the heat of the day. We were... More

Smack in the middle of South side Rio, this old estate is perhaps one of the most unexpected visits. It used to be someone's home, but now is a cultural point, where people go to have breakfast (great, by the way) and to relax.

When it is overcast and you have already done the main sites in Rio, then I would definitely recommend that you come here. It is like a fairy tale, lots of nooks and crannies to explore! If you have kids, I am sure that they would love it too! There is also the option to trek up to the Corcovado... More

You have to go there without thinking on absolutely anything. Drinking a coffee, looking at Cristo and the Mata Atlântica, it's one the most beautiful scene you can put yourself on an afternoon.

This is a pleasant walk in the grounds of colonial style buildings, one of which has a cafe and an small exhibition centre. It's almost under Corcovado and The Redeemer looks down on you from upon high. We stopped off while we were walking around the Lagoon (lake). A little bit of a language barrier with the waiting staff but... More

Be ready to relax and explore this unique and lush park. We saw families of monkeys who were somewhat interested in us, and birds and giant fruit trees. Quiet corners everywhere, very zen. Worth a few hours, get the map and follow it!

Prior to our visit to Jardim Botanico, we decided to pop to the nearby Parque Lage for breakfast. The location is gorgeous (monkeys in the trees, water fountain, historical buildings etc) and the breakfast was excellent value. We ordered the 'platter' which consists of a selection of bread, jam, cheese, a fruit cake, a fresh juice and a coffee. This... More

Great old stylish elegant place just to sit and have a beer or two - especially if you like elegant old colonial style architecture - they do food and have some artists exhibiting paintings etc
