Discover Rio Botanical Gardens Brazil

In Rio, the Botanical Gardens (Jardin Botanico) provide the opportunity to take a break from the city. There are more than 5,000 species of plants and flowers from all over the world spread over 346 acres of parkland. The famous perfectly straight pathway bordered on either side by 30 metre high royal palms marks the entrance to an old plantation.The view is striking, and if you wish to see the gardens when they are in flower, go between October and December. However, the visit is worth it in all seasons.
