Jardim Botanico - Review
The ‘Jardim Botanico’ or Botanical Garden of Rio de Janeiro has a serene landscape that offers respite from the city. The garden is home to hundreds of varieties of flora from Brazil and around the world. Set on 140 hectares, the park is home to several bird and small animal species. There is a Visitor’s Centre on the premises where one can plan how best to explore the lush greenscape. There are also several water bodies and fountains around the garden. The shade provided by the trees and comfortable park benches make for a nice place to sit and relax. There is a children’s playground for kids under 10 to play. Other highlights of the park are the Old Gunpowder Factory, the Victoria Lilies in the Lago Frei Leandro pond, the Amazon Region and the Japanese Garden. Some other attractions worth checking out nearby are the Parque Lage and the Escola Parque. You will also find several sculptures located around the garden. This place is not very crowded and is mostly visited by locals and families on the weekends. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Rio De Janeiro Itinerary 5 Days.

Jardim Botanico, Rio De Janeiro Reviews
Thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Botanical Gardens. A great variety of tropical plants that as a European had never seen before. There is a small shuttle which can drop you off at one of 5 or 6 points. The area is very flat and easy to walk in. Also very safe as completely gated complex.
Beautiful place to visit. A must see in Rio. Do not miss. Thanks again for the email and I will be there in August 13 the icon in August and September but I will be in touch soon to get a room for rent in the mail for you from the icon and the heads and I have a room at noon so we can you please let me and I have to be when we were wondering the same place in August and I will get a check.
Simply a magical place. Tranquil and so looked after; personal favourite was the Atlantic forest walk where we spotted a monkey. Cactus exhibit is also great too. Lovely café restaurant outside the main entrance, a little pricey.
One of the most beautiful botanical gardens I have visited. It is well worth the entrance fee. The garden is well maintained and clean, the free map is not much of a help sometimes. The toilets isn't well marked which can be a bother if you don't speak Portuguese. The security personnel keep a watchful eye, and will quickly tell you if you not allowed to step on the grass.. all and all a wonderful day out
You like Botanical Gardens? You like it Huuge? This is the place to go. Spent easily 5Hrs just walking around, exploring all the fauna and flora in this Gem. Plenty of guidance and information boards and a beautiful Rosegarden with Orchids and more. You can also just search for apes and feed them Fruits
