We visited these gardens as part of a tour of the Santos area. The garden was nicely set out with interesting plants and flowers, and also various animals and caged birds along the way. Definitely worth a visit.

We visited this zoo during the Brazilian winter months. It is a little place but worth the stop. They have several animals from South America. Displays and plants to see in a lot of variety. Cost $5 real and 12 and under are free
