The best of Brazilian landscape design and Popular Art

Rio's beautiful and untouched sight!

This visit takes place on the west area of Rio out of the touristic sites. After crossing a nature reserve and a still untouched part of our coast, we arrive at a very unusual Botanic garden designed by a famous Brazilian landscape designer with its private collection of plants from all over the world. After this surprising visit a special touch is added by having lunch in a special fish restaurant in the middle of a fishing village that only locals know.


Pick up at your hotel, drive along the "new beach" area of Rio until arriving at a small and charming untouched beach. Then visit the Burle Max Botanical Garden. After this visit, expect a unique lunch at a delicious fresh fish restaurant with a beautiful view of the area. Drive through a nature reserve all along Rio's coast until returning to the hotel.

A Recent Review of this tour

Leticia put together an excellent itinerary for seeing another part of Rio. Burle Max house and gardens are a delight with his unique collection of plants. It is like another world. Letitia did an excellent job translating the whole tour. We drove through super modern Rio with shopping centers and also rural neighborhoods with horse drawn carts. Had a delightful lunch on the mountain with a breathtaking view and a magnificent drive along beautiful Barra beach. A really relaxing change of pace!
