Some things just have to be experienced. One of which is the botanical garden of Rio, which is called “Jardim Botanico do Rio” in Portuguese. Situated in the southern Rio, more precisely in the district of Jardim Botanico, this landscape park attracts many visitors every year. The tropical plant diversity of the excursion destination is simply enchanting.

Already since the beginning of the 19th century, this fantastic place has been inviting us to relax. The botanical garden is home to more than 6,000 plant species, including some that are threatened with extinction. The botanical garden of Rio is also home to many animal species which visitors can admire in their own zoo.

Some plants have been there since the foundation of the garden and are now more than 200 years old. In every corner of the park, you can discover new, tropical plants. The local variety is especially interesting for visitors from other regions. A greenhouse for carnivorous plants, the National Museum and a Bromeliad House are additional invitations to a discovery tour.

Should you ever realize the dream of a holiday in Rio de Janeiro, just schedule the botanical garden into your travel itinerary! You will not regret it.
