We were fortunate to join a group hiking. Tijuca is it's own little oasis of peacefulness. For adventuresome people, there are also caves to hike through. If you have time, it's great for a half day adventure.

We incorporated a visit to the forest (planted by humans) as part of a day trip to Corcovado. Best way to see/experience it is on the tramway through the forest to the top. If you are visiting Corcovada include this forest experience.

Tijuca forest is wonderful. It has a little bit of everything you would find in the jungle, including wonderful waterfalls. There is also a restaurant, Os Esquilos, that serves rather good food. A very interesting place to visit even though you don't eat there.

Enjoy the park with a guided tour by Jungle Me - it was a fun way to experience the park and get some exercise too.

Make sure you have plenty of time to see this. Unlike some of the other locations this place requires at least half of a day to really see it.

We did a jeep tour with this one. It was absolutely awful. We drove around for several hours and never even got out of the truck.... Make sure you find a tour where you actually get to hike or walk around. This one was a waste of our day....

Travelling with two kids, we love spending some time walking in the forest and watching local wildlife... you can go by car, park inside the national park, and stop at some spots to have a walk... what a shame that the restaurants were closed :-(

We went looking for sloths, but did not find any. However, the waterfall was beautiful and the flowers and vines enormous.

Fantastic park. Can you imagine a tropical forest within 10 minutes from your hotel? That's all about this park. Lots of trails with different difficulty levels are available. Definitely a must visit place during your days in Rio.

One of the best place in Rio de Janeiro. Amazing rain forest, waterfalls, lakes, areas for pic nic and many other things to do with your family or your friends or for couples.
