“A safe place to take photos with your expensive gear”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

The Botanical Garden is great at any time of year. You can see many old trees, some very rare, bromeliads, orchids, exotic birds (you'll need binoculars to see the toucans and parakeets), and monkeys. Some areas of the park are rather busy (around the main ponds and the orchid gardens) others are very quiet (the Amazon pond near the Japanese garden). Depending on your interests you will enjoy spending between 2 and 5 hours there. You also will see people with expensive camera gear there, for nature photography or weddings. The Botanical Garden is the safest place to experience Rio's tropical nature.

“Lovely little haven in a busy city”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Small entrance fee, but it's a lovely place to escape to for an hour or 2-and a short bus ride from your visit to Crist The Redeemer.
The restaurant didn't look all that special, but luckily I'd already eaten.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Very interesting trees. Thanks to our excellent guide we saw Toucans in the trees, also Marmosets. Half a day is just right to see most things.

“Not that great”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Again , disappointed due to rainy weather. The place is large, but mostly green Not a lot of flowers. We travelled by local bus. The conductor lady was very rude when we asked to remind when we reach the garden.
