It's near the coast. Full of marshes and trees. I took a few photos and videos of the place. If I find where to post them on Trip Advisor then I'll share them. If not, later I will include a link to YouTube .

Best place to have a light and super light local fish! I had Filhote ao Moho de carambola. The pupunha palm is also lovely!

An amazing park, with very interesting spots. There is a huge cage with a great variety of local birds, iguanas walking on the grass, turtles and sea birds on the lake. Go on the mornins to lunch after at the local restaurant.

This park is beautiful, with lakes and birds. There is a very good restaurant, with a nice view of the river. The must go place, however, is the Butterflies House. You can stay together with thousands of butterflies, in the garden. It is an unforgettable experience.

We went there it was raining, but it worth the visit: very beautiful, a lot of typical birds (garças, Jaru....) with beautiful and colored feathers.

Great gardens with local wildlife up close and personal. Done in the restaurant on site right on the water and climb the lighthouse for a great view. Very glad I got to go here!

beautiful setting, beautiful view, even though is an artificial-amazon setting. must go up the tower to see belem from the heights. the problem there is that, since its a new place and the trees are still a bit small, in sunny days it might not be such a pleasant walk.

Very close to downtown - only 5 min by taxi or 20 min by walking - the Mangal has different environments where the visitor can see plants, birds, butterflies, orchids in a very clean and well preserved site. Also there is a tower - called lighthouse - reached by an elevator where you can see the city from the top... More

This is an area flooded by the river with lots of natural ecosystem (fauna and flora) to be appreciated. They have a good restaurant, in an all-you-can-eat buffet style, but that serves perhaps the best food in town. Try the different river fishes for a regional experience. But they offer everything regional you can find in Belém, in addition to... More

It was a bit out of the way, but worth the time to get there. Although the facilities are in need of some love and care, the different spaces with amazing birds make it all very interesting and great for photos. We explored the aviaries, the tower and the little walk. We also tasted local delicacies and amazon fruit ice... More
