Over 7, 000 species including Brazilian wood are distributed on a charming area used by locals to spend time surrounded by family and friends; either to have a coffee, enjoy breakfast early in the morning, read a book or just observe the wild life. The most unusual stop is at a greenhouse, not found in most gardens, specialized in Bromelias. There is a variety of species found in different colors and often some are used to decorate parties around chandeliers, on vases, sculptures and exotic shapes.
Still at the neighborhood we'll tour around to see the beautiful houses located in the middle of this special environment. One suggestion: for a bigger meal I can pick one of the cozy and charming restaurants of the area with a view to the park.
Driving around the city's very upscale neighborhood that will partially be used during the 2016 Olympics we'll get to the XIX founded gardens of Rio. We'll take a walk through out the park's main spots (orchid's house, Royal palm hall, a lake where Amazonian lily's can be seen, etc).
The Botanical garden of Rio has recently inaugurated one of the city's best coffee shop so this can also be used for a natural juice, a cup of cappuccino, sandwich, etc

I just can say it was worth to pay a lot of money. But I got such an insider view of Rio de Janeiro. If you like to plan individual things like me, I can recommend Leticia, because she implemented my wishes and searched for suitable things. She really surprised me, and I felt secure during the whole trip. If you like to discover and get to know insider things, you are right by Leticia.
