This afternoon we’re heading to Jardim Botânico, the Botanical Garden, which lies at the foot of Corcovado Mountain and has more than 6,000 different species of tropical and subtropical plants, and hundreds of different types of palm trees.

You can also walk through the museum, order from the outdoor café and explore the gift shop.
Later we’ll be heading to experience spectacular views of one of the most amazing sights in the world as we overlook the city from Pão de Açúcar, or Sugar Loaf Mountain and watch the sunset and the city light up.
