And a wonderful place to stroll, being an ecological reserve or Ecologico Sanctuario. And a quiet and serene place and is a great place to contemplate nature, sheltering various animals like birds and turtles. It has an electric trolley that takes the regulators from the entrance to the Orchidario (over 60 years old, handicapped and pregnant) and the back. The value of the entry revolves around R $15.00 (whole) and R $7.50 (half entry). Well worth a visit!
I you have a spare couple of hours worth a visit but nothing that interesting there. Get a taxi it is further to walk from the beaches than you think. more »
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.
