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.
