“A little bit of heaven in the middle of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

We loved our visit to the botanical gardens. The main fountain is amazing and the lovely paths lined with all types of trees is just stunning. Bring your camera - there's so much to photograph! We saw sweet little monkeys in the trees and lots of interesting birds. Definitely worth the 15-20 min cab ride from the beaches.

“If there us nothing else to do ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

The firsts days we spent in Rio were cloudy so we had to find other options, so we saw good reviews and decided to go. Is cheap, only 6 reales and it is a nice walk with a lovely environment, when we went the orquids and the insectivorous plants were not on exhibit . A little disapointment.

“The Best Botanical Garden in My Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Absolutely beautiful. Big enough to spend a few hours there. A great way to escape the crowdedness of the city and find some peaceful time and space.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

This is a beautiful garden worth the visit. We visited this garden in April 2013. Lots of greenery at this time. I am not sure what month the spectacular blossoms & color come out but I still found it beautiful. You will see monkeys in the trees & very large fish in the ponds. Take a few hours & really enjoy the grounds. Well worth the visit.
