Features
Great value, Family-friendly
Rio's botanical gardens feature more than 8,000 plant species and date back to 1808. The space features awe-inspiring spectacles of nature, starting right from the entry, where visitors walk between two 800-yard-long rows of towering palm trees. Another highlight: a lake with massive water lilies and a greenhouse with 600 species of orchids. While wandering on one's own is a meditative experience, the garden's themed tours—by foot or electric cart—give historical context and identify harder-to-find, but very worthwhile, paths.
