THE place is wonderful!!! Go with time lol The park is also an excellent place for birdwatching, as it has more than one hundred different species in the canopy and trunks of its trees. It's worth a visit ☺️

Organized in different percelas, and with a recommended tour indicated in the golletteyy that they deliver at the entrance, you will discover different gardens (Japanese, Mexican, rosedales, orchid and an exclusive space of cacti). It is easy to arrive, with several public transport lines that leave you at the door. The entrance leaves fifteen real and the average visit time is two hours. It has a space with games for children, restaurant, museum and gift. It is an excellent option for a day when you want to do something other than the beach. This garden is an emblem of the city of Rio and without a doubt a mandatory stop.
Huge! Good price for what you get. Easy to get to on a bus or “surface metro”. We saw a ton of monkeys!!!!! That was the best. Nice bromeliads. Cool amazonian trees. Wish there were more orchids though
Probably the most beautiful park in Rio. Not ideal for children since there's a lot of walking, so they'll most likely get bored and tired. The kids playground is laughable - for the 15 reais you pay when you enter Jardim Botânico , you'd expect something much better. Overall, a good place to spend the afternoon with your significant one and take some photos.
