If you are in Belém, consider going there .. Maybe not for the food precisely (although is not bad at all) but, for the place, the environment, the animals (the most red flamingos I have ever seen), plants and some museum even. The view of the river is amazing, and from the top of the tower, the entire city. Nice... More

Try to go on a weekday if possible, since it is one of the busiest attractions in Belém. Within this small herons’ sanctuary, there is the Belém Lighthouse (Farol de Belém), which gives you a 360˚ view of the city from the top of its 27 meters high. Going up will cost you around $3, well spent ones.

A beautiful park by the Old Town riverside where you can simply stroll down lanes in the company of colorful birds and enjoy the lush plants, or by a small fee visit a lighthouse providing nice views of the river and surrounding islands and other beautifully designe nature-related items. Also, an excellent buffet restaurant with live music is a great... More

Amazing place, very large and strong double deck wood house, it reminds a bit South African lodges, surrounded by a preserved forest, it holds a mirant to be used during the day while you lunch and at night the restaurant is one of the best in Belem, the food is really awesome, the service is first class while the environment...

A wonderful park/garden/zoo in the middle of the hot, rather dirty city. Iguanas galore! Good place to sit and have something cool to drink.

Mangal das garcas is a bird sanctuary. Here one can see white and red egrets. Right beside them one can also see chameleons. It is a fantastic place to go for dinner as well.

It seems that attractions in Belem are free if your over 60. This was a peaceful walk around a sterile environment. The birds that were here were beautiful. There were so few butterflies in the butterfly house that it shouldn't be called a butterfly exhibit. The tower has an elevator which is cool as the stairs were closed off and... More
