You’ll find historical spots, spectacular views, a beautiful waterfall, a small chapel and unusual trees in this dense, tropical national park, probably best explored by jeep tour.

A national park in the middle of a city is a nice diversion, both relaxing and beautiful. But it also can be a bit of an afterthought after you've seen the Amazon rainforests or others like it. You may be lucky enough to see a few colorful birds or even some monkeys but you've probably seen them before in other... More

Amazing nature with clean hiking trails. It is close to the city and a great escape from dirty and hot Rio. You can hear birds and see waterfalls. The restaurant inside was closed in the middle of the day. The people at the tourist info do nor speak English, or any other language. It is actually terrible to not even... More

If you'd like to escape from the hustle and bustle of Rio de janeiro for a while without leaving the city, I recommend Tijuca National Park, or as it's better known here, a Floresta de Tijuca. Various busroutes leaving the center of the city will take you here and you can walk about and see wildlife such as small monkeys... More

This park is very close to Rio and about 30 min ride from the city. It is one of the biggest national park so close. Trails are good and nicely marked. Worth spending little time for nature lovers

Lots of hiking opportunities, but our time limited us to a tour by car. Lots to see, including the "Chinese view" and a high waterfall. Others report seeing troops of monkeys, but our wildlife was limited to witnessing a coati rooting through trash bins.

A must see. A quiet forest with giant trees and capuchin monkeys, with splashing waterfalls and viewpoints that will take your breath away. Engage a guide who will drive you there and show you the best spots. I recommend Rio Active Tours guide (details on Tripadvisor).

We booked with Rio Maximo and had a great experience with Adriano. He is knowledgeable about the flora and fauna in the park and went above and beyond to ensure that all guests enjoyed the experience to the utmost. It is refreshing when a tour guide NEVER makes even the slightest mention of tipping, which perhaps made us even more... More
