Floresta da Tijuca is the largest urban jungle in he world. Hundreds of species and endless greenery lie within and the views perched above Rio are spectacular.

This was beautiful, but a little disappointed that there were no birds. Our Guide Gabriel and Driver Maria were very patient while we took lots of photographs
