Come here in the early morning to avoid the daily shower, as there is few places take shelter. The area is very good for a calm walk. In addition there is a very good restaurant with ala carte and lunch buffet.

Provides the best elevated panoramic view of the city and Amazon. Went on a Sunday afternoon and spent about 2-3 hours enjoying the plants, iguanas, butterflies, flamingos and other birds. Very inexpensive, clean and well kept beautiful gardens.

Visited mangal das garças with my husband. The park is not very big, but we could spend half a day there admiring the incredible beauty of this place! The place is very organized and has no entrance fee. You only have to pay if you want to climb up the observatory tower or visit the orchid place, Tickets are inexpensive... More

Pleasant spot, but the animal related exhibits are pretty so so. The view from the lighthouse is great and the Amazonian navigation museum is small, but interesting and well done.
