The botanical gardens are a must visit when in Rio de Janeiro. Make sure you make time if you want to see the entire grounds as it is quite extensive. There are plant species we never knew existed.

Nice gardens, but somewhat riske' as far as going. It's situated just off a busy thoroughfare so easy to get to (did I say, use UBER here--it's a bargain), but the gardens themselves are nothing you'd rave about.

Make a day of it--we did and it was perhaps the highlight of our trip. Enchanting setting, exceptional beauty. Contrasted with the noise and clutter elsewhere. My wife visited twice and looks forward to returning.

I agree that morning is best as it can get hot. There are picnic tables in the children's park, but those fill up quickly and people leave their stuff there to claim a table. You can't sit on the grass outside of the... More
