Loved the new b&w photography exhibit. Loved the bamboo and just walking around. The Palms were amazing.

The orchid display was shut down, would have liked to see this.

A highlight of the trip. Very peaceful

Lots of greenery, variety of plants, monkeys (few cute small ones on the trees) and birds ... Lovely cafe, with really slow service but good food and fresh juices and soups. It was raining initially so you got ht feel of the tropical plants, but when the in come out it was lovely, great view of the christo too,

If you are looking for a beautiful place away from the crowds, try the Botanical Gardens. There is a great little cafe too!

It's a lovely place to escape the beaches and city life of Rio. I'd heard mixed reviews from friends but was still interested to go exploring. It's cheap and cheeful, and is a great relaxing thing to do away from the beaches and the city life. Lots of beautiful plants and birdlife. Not too much information on hand so I'd do a bit of research first, but enjoyed a stop in the cafe before moving on. I would recommend it- a great sanctuary in the middle of a bustling city.

It's a lovely place to spend an evening. The botanical garden were founded in the 19th century as a science and research facility and they still try to emulate that atmosphere.
There a lot of birds, and last time I went there I spot a couple of toucanos.
For tourists I guess it's a nice choice if you have an spare afternoon, or just want to relax a little.
