Truly, we only visited as it was part of our tour for the day. We would have preferred going back to the hotel earlier. Then again, gardens are not my cup of tea so anyone who has an interest will certainly enjoy it.

The botanical gardens are a must visit when in Rio de Janeiro. Make sure you make time if you want to see the entire grounds as it is quite extensive. There are plant species we never knew existed.
