You’ll find historical spots, spectacular views, a beautiful waterfall, a small chapel and unusual trees in this dense, tropical national park, probably best explored by jeep tour.

Lots of trails and Peaks to visit, but find specialized guides. Always walk in groups and avoid carrying lots of money, expensive watches ... sports suits for walks. Unfortunately political instability reflects on public safety.

A beautiful experience within nature yet a little artificial. Good to see but not a must a little like the rest of the fauna of the area.

As this is the largest urban forest in the world. A tour will show you the usual stuff like trials an waterfalls. It should be high on your list of experiences. We combined it with a trip to Santa Teresa also for safety.

Tijuca is beautiful. I took the JungleMe tour to Pico de Tijuca and it was fantastic. The plants and trees were nice, the views were great, and it was all in the middle of the city. Nice waterfalls too.

A tour to this park is a must, 20 mins outside the city and it feels like your in the rainforest. Beautiful waterfalls and lovely bbq areas

Yes, but not very often. It's better to take a private car.

I don't think it's necessary to get a guide. If you're a runner, once you get in the park, follow the signs and see where the running lanes are. There are a few, and some go by beautiful waterfalls. Enjoy it.

You're not being paranoid, but to be sure, bring some OFF, or other lotion to put on to protect yourself. I've been there twice, at different times of the year and never used anything, with no problems.
