Tourist Attraction in Rio - part II

Jardim Botânico (Botanical Garden) 

One of Rio's most remarkable natural attractions. It contains more than 5,000 species of tropical and subtropical plants and trees, including 900 varieties of palms. The 340-acre garden is good for a marvelous afternoon stroll.
Besides the varieties of plants,  a herbarium, aquarium and a library at these gardens founded in 1908, bird-watchers are advised to show up early morning since 140 species have been spotted including flycatchers and tanagers, plus the American hawk.

Copacabana Beach is far more than a tourist spot. 

It serves as a special place of local life where people meet at playgrounds, sidewalks, kiosks, gyms...

Framed with black and white mosaic sidewalks and lined with kiosks, Copacabana is a hot spot day and night with lifeguard posts, public showers, hotels, bars and open-air restaurants.

There are historic forts at both ends of Copacabana beach; Fort Copacabana, built in 1914, is at the south end by Posto Seis and Fort Duque de Caxias, built in 1779, at the north end.
