Excellent collection of plants, stunning old royal palms, but the formal gardens are not particularly inspiring.

Extensive garden with many kinds of plants and trees unknown for a European. We were amazed by the majestic "palm avenue". It was a real oasis in the busy city of Rio de Janeiro.

Great place to go for a walk and relax!
The garden is well kept and the coffee shop outside has very good breakfast!

R$6 allows you to walk around this beautiful collection of trees and greenery from all over the world. Not very crowded, allows for romantic strolls that could last forever.

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Rio, the Botanical Gardens are a peaceful place for a wander. We arrived at lunch time and so made our way to La Bicyclette the attractive cafe just inside the gates where we sat in the shade, enjoyed a very good lunch and then set about to explore the gardens. I have read reviews by people complaining about the lack of flowers in April which is the month we visited. It is autumn not spring in Rio and so of course there would be lack of flowers but for us the gardens were well maintained. We were only charged a small fee for entry and managed to fill in a couple of hours wandering around and enjoying the well laid out gardens with the help of the guide map we were given. If you like gardens then we think this is well worth a visit.
