    There are few who know that beautiful park. The entry a little scary but nothing that causes problems. Many have passed on the door but didn't know of the existence of this park. Excellent for visiting, good hiking, an interesting Museum to visit. Pretty good for a picnic or a walk with your Pet, but you mustn't let it loose as it is an open park for a forest.

    That's right, not to be missed. The place is beautiful, wide, full of nature and the view is no comments. Ideal for rest, leisure, picnic, stroll with children, boyfriends, and much more. Just wonderful. This is one of the points that a tourist should not miss meeting.

    Located just outside of the traditional circuit of visits by tourists but worth knowing. You probably didn't see many animals beyond the butterflies and birds, but you can take excellent photos

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
