On a Monday afternoon the garden was quiet and very relaxing to walk around. There were lots of interesting areas, including the orchid house, and water features. The gardens were very well maintained.

We visited the botanical garden during our stay in Rio. It was about a half hour ride from our hotel (Copacabana Palace). Lots of interesting plants and trees. Spent about 2 hours walking around
