Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden (Jardim Botanico)
A serene, verdant oasis in the midst of bustling Rio de Janeiro, the city’s Botanical Garden (Jardim Botânico) offers a chance to see and learn about both Amazonian and imported plants. There are over 6,500 species of plant contained in the 133-acre (54-hectare) plot, as well as an important research facility and botanical library.
 
The Basics
Rio’s shady Botanical Garden, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and home to a part of the Atlantic Forest, is a lovely place to wander and escape the city’s crowds, traffic, and penetrating sunshine. Highlights include a lake containing massive water lilies, a huge catalog of orchids and bromeliads, and the Japanese Garden. Prince Regent Dom João founded the garden in 1808, and today they are used as a research center as well as for public enjoyment. Walk down the Avenue of Royal Palms, lined with 134 majestic palm trees, and into the garden, where you will find the first tea, cloves, and cinnamon imported and acclimated to Brazil. While admiring the flora, look out for native wildlife, including capuchin monkeys, tufted-ear marmosets, and more than 140 species of bird.
 
Guided tours of the Botanical Garden offer insights into its history and mission from a knowledgeable local guide. You can easily combine guided tours of Corcovado, the Christ the Redeemer statue, and Sugar Loaf Mountain with a stop at the botanical garden, as well as other city highlights such as Ipanema, Copacabana, and Parque Lage.
