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 garden in Rio. Close to bus stops it is easy to get to. There is an entrance fee depending if you're Brazilian and a non Brazilian citizen. Garden is lush with plenty of exotic plants and tress. Perfect place to spend the afternoon. Plenty of amenities in the area: gift stores, washroom, restaurants, etc. Overall the garden is beautifully well maintained Would recommend if visiting Rio and want to have a more quiet, tranquil and green experience.
  • A magical place! Wasn’t even sure if I wanted to visit but my local friends convinced me to go and I couldn’t be more happy about it! First of all it is huuuge! So if you love nature please spare at least 3-4 hours to this place you won’t regret it. There is another magnificent beauty in every corner you don’t wanna miss it! Also monkeys, lovely birds and so much more!! Entrance fee is a bit high (R$ 65) but it is worth paying and visiting for sure!
