The Tijuca Forest and Santa Teresa Tour in Rio de Janeiro , combines 2 of most popular places of Rio, in just one single trip . It starts with a visit to Santa Teresa neighborhood and ends with a visit to Tijuca Forest National Park.
Santa Teresa is one of the highlights of Rio de Janeiro. The bohemian neighborhood up the hills has impressive views of the city and is quite different from other areas of Rio. Named after a monastery, the neighborhood attracted rich families in the early 19th century. By the late 19th century it became “the home of the bohemians and artists”.
In Santa Teresa, we visit the Escadaria Selaron (Selaron Steps), Largo do Curvelo, Largo dos Guimarães and Parque das Ruínas (Ruins Park). After that, we head out to Tijuca Forest National Park, where we visit the Vista Chinesa (Chinese View), Cascata Taunay (Taunay Waterfalls), and the Centro de Visitantes (Visitor Center). A short walk in the jungle is also included, so people can have a closer look to the fauna and flora.Tijuca Forest is known for being the largest urban florest in the world, with over 3000 species of plants, 2 species of monkeys and many species of birds, mammals and reptiles.
