The place is quite large and there is plenty of vegetation to enjoy, ponds and beautiful centenary palm trees!
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.
