We visited here as part of our trip to Corcovado and it was well worth it. Interesting flora everywhere, and some stunning views.

We visit this park on our way to “El Corcovado”. Is very nice, with beautiful vegetation. Go early if you go during summer, because is very, very hot.

The national park is only a short drive out of Rio. Best to have a driver/guide who can drop you at view points and let you see the views of Rio.

A breath of fresh air close to the city. Great place to come and relax, enjoy cooler temperatures and close to nature. Good for biking (although steep) and for hiking in the woods. You might even see some animals.

We trekked through many of the well-marked trails in the Tijuca rainforest. It was hard to believe the urban city of Rio was just on the other side of the forest. We spent a full day hiking and truly enjoyed the place. Bring water and...More

We spent some time touring the National Park as we were headed with our guide to the Christ the Redeemer Statue. Very peaceful respite in the huge city of Rio. Don't overlook this gem as yo plan your visits in Rio.

There's a very nice waterfall inside the park that's great to visit. The park as a whole is very accessible from the city - great to walk or cycle around, free to enter and has multiple scenic points to get a bird's view of Rio...More
