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.

Wow. This is an incredible park in the middle of a large city. The drive through it was beautiful. We were sorry we could not spend more time and enjoy a hike or two or picnic.

We visited this place to give our skin some much needed rest from the sun. We decided to forgo a guided tour and check out the park on our own. The drive with the taxi to the visitor's center from Copacabana cost about 65 reais. At the center you can get a map of the trails and with this you... More

The park is located waiting the limits of the city of Rio de Janeiro. The vegetation is quite thick and offers a bit of respite from the heat of the lower elevation. The park claims there is much to see with it's fauna and flora. I was somewhat disappointed. I did not see an extraordinary amount of unique plants endemic... More

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
