This is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Rio de Janeiro. If you, like me, use the bus system, find one that takes the Jardim Botanico street and ask to be dropped by Parque Lage. The trails are fantastic, the gardens are lovely, and the school of art is around the water in the house. Beautiful photos... More

..give yourself a few hours to get lost in this park. I grabbed a small bite in the cafe before wandering through the paths and then spent a few hours wandering about. The food in the cafe is organic and delicious, and the park itself is full of beautiful plants, water falls and monkeys.

A friend of mine gave me a tip to have breakfast at Parque Lage during our trip to Rio. It was a very nice historical building with artist works on display. The breakfast was good. Because it was fall/winter (1st week of June) the garden was not as beautiful as it would normally would be but it was still a... More

It was my first visit and I´ve been to Rio more than 10 times. Excellent place, very near to famous and also excellent Jardim Botanico. You can visit both in the same morning, for example. There are several trails, that I have saved for another visit. There is also an aquarium inside a rock. Very curious.

A wonderful place, surrounded by a privileged nature. A great choice for hiking, picnics, take pictures or just enjoy the wonderful scenery.

We enjoyed the caves, trails and aquarium in the park area immensely. Five stars for the park, one star for the restaurant. Half our beverages never came, despite ordering them twice. Several sandwich items on the menu were not available, including basics like ham and turkey. I asked for the same sandwich substituting chicken and was told no substitutions. The... More

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.
