Floresta de Tijuca

The Tijuca Forest is a beautiful national park — which happens to be in the middle of Rio’s endless urban expanse. After the land was used during the coffee boom, the whole forest/jungle was replanted around 1930, now it’s a wild park and a great place to cool off on the weekend and go for a hike.

We did a hike with the Facebook group Rio Walkers and were surprised at the pristine condition of the park and excellent signage.
