Nature 30 minutes from the city

Cascatinha Taunay - Floresta da Tijuca

Tijuca National Park, the largest urban forest in the world and one of Rio’s many treasures. With its sheer density and lushness, it’s easy to forget that you are just 30 minutes from the city.  The park has many incredible sights to take in, from waterfalls to hidden caverns and breathtaking vistas. It is the perfect place to get reacquainted with nature while practicing Portuguese.
