We spent a delightful morning in the Botanical Garden. We arrived at open ing time, so had the garden to ourselves for some time. It is very well maintained, quite vast, with lovely walks and good cafes.

Botanical Gardens Rio de Janeiro were beautiful. A luxury to find shade in 37C temperature! The gardens were very attractive for a stroll of about 2 hours including lunch. The Japanese Garden was attractive too.
