"Tijuca Forest" Tijuca Forest Tip by el_ruso

Tijuca Forest, Rio de Janeiro: 27 reviews and 39 photos


This is a very large preserve with lush jungle and varied animal life, including monkeys. It is accessible only by car - it is very large and contains very steep hills. You may book a tour for about $45 per person, or rent a car and cruise yourself.
