Two 800-yard-long rows of towering royal palm trees are a highlight of this massive garden containing thousands of plants and trees, including every variety of palm tree imaginable.
After spending time at the top of Sugarloaf Mountain and Corcovado (Christ the Redeemer), with their attendant hoards of visitors, we enjoyed the calm oasis of Jardim Botanico. In addition to the large and diverse variety of trees and plants we also saw several small family groups of Slaty-breasted Wood-rails, a couple of Rufous Hermits, several Green-headed Tanagers, and a roving band of Channel-billed Toucans. It can be quite hot and humid so visiting early and late in the day is best, but there are spots to shelter from the sun in a cafe, or sitting beside the pond. They also have a nice gift shop.
