Explore the fascinating world of terrestrial and aquatic biodiversity in Rio de Janeiro with a visit to the main hubs of education, research, and conservation: BioParque do Rio and AquaRio - Rio Marine Aquarium.

Embark on your journey to Quinta da Boa Vista, situated in the historic São Cristóvão neighborhood, once the residence of the Royal Family in the 19th century. Dive into the modern and revamped Rio Zoo, BioParque do Rio, where animals now thrive in thoughtfully designed environments rather than conventional cages.

BioParque boasts over 1,000 animals representing 140 different species, organized into various sectors such as Imersão Tropical (Tropical Immersion), Vila dos Répteis (Reptile Village), Horto (Vegetable Garden), Reis da Selva (Kings of the Jungle), Asiáticos (Asians), Sumatra, Savana Africana (African Savanna), Carnívoros (Carnivores), Cerrado (Brazilian Savanna), Ilha dos Primatas (Primate Island), Polinizadores (Pollinators), and Jardim Burle Marx (Burle Marx Garden). The Fazendinha (Little Farm) offers an additional activity (separate ticket, available within the park) where supervised interactions with farm animals, including touching, petting, and feeding, are possible.

Continue your exploration at AquaRio, South America's largest marine aquarium. Witness over 5,000 animals representing 350 different species from around the globe housed in 28 saltwater tanks. Experience close encounters and even interactions with a diverse array of fish, invertebrates, rays, sharks, and corals. Capture a memorable photo inside the main tank tunnel as marine life passes overhead—an enchanting nature show suitable for all ages!

Located in the revitalized Porto Maravilha area, AquaRio is part of the city's port region that has undergone a complete transformation, housing the newest tourist attractions in Rio de Janeiro. After the visit, choose to explore the area independently or return to your hotel with us.
