Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Rio de Janeiro / Rio de Janeiro / Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro
Noted for its collection of over 6,500 plants from all over the globe, historic Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro also houses Brazil’s largest botanical library. Distributed over an area of 54 hectares (133 acres) and utilizing several large greenhouses, the garden’s collection shelters many endangered and threatened species. The site also includes an important research center and an impressive collection of some of Brazil’s rarest plants. Located at the foot of the Corcovado Mountain, right below the right arm of the Christ the Redeemer statue, the garden is one of UNESCO’s protected biosphere reserves. Stop by to see over 140 species of bids, many of which have become accustomed to humans and are much easier to observe than in the wild.

Beautiful, serene and peaceful, this botanical garden seems a bit derelict. I believe it is only an impression, created by the various winding paths paved in stone instead of asphalt, and the humidity which lends a green patina even to newer stonework. Overall, it is a great space, with beautiful local and foreign exhibits. The vistas keep changing and as you stroll through the garden you have opportunities to take the main road or less beaten paths, bringing you close to the beautiful trees and plants. A restful experience even if you walk for miles. Highly recommended.
Well worth the entrance fee! A huge botanical garden which is set in a lovely neighbourhood of Rio offering welcome respite to the hustle and bustle of the city. A wide range of plants and birds can be seen and you can easily spend 3 or 4 hours here. We didn’t have time to try out the coffee shop and restaurant but they looked more than decent.
