Great place to visit on any stay in Manaus! Plus the temperature under the tree canopy is a LOT less than in town! Lots to see - serpentarium, natural Amazonian rainforest, wildlife - on the trails on the guided tour. There is also a tower you can climb to see the forest canopy. English-speaking guides available. Entrance is inexpensive -... More

The botanical garden just outside Manaus is your best chance of seeing the Amazon tree canopy without flying over it. It's an easy ride from the city (taxis are good value if there's more than one of you - no need to pay for a special trip). Entrance is cheap (the usual concessions and remember all over-60s get good reductions... More

I recommend that visitors make the full tour: track and climb the tower of 42 meters.There are many areas of creating native species such as orchids, bromeliads, butterflies, snakes and fish - all accompanied by trained biologists.

A walking for a 7 years old boy. Not worth to visit. A 10 km x 10 km area for a 500 m walking. If you really like trekking you gonna get bored.

I visited the botanical gardens in February 2016 and was taken around by a very able staff member whose name sadly escapes me. It is unfortunate that more tourists do not find their way here. This is a great place to visit. The variety of orchids are astounding. More importantly, simply jump on a bus 448 and it stops right... More

The tower and exploring the trails are a must! Our guides, Kelly and Jefferson, were very welcoming! Several interesting display areas to see in addition to the tower and trails. Enjoyed the visit very much with the whole family!

Each presentation centre was well displayed and explained by the tour guide. The highlight was climbing the tower. It would have been great if our tour guide could have pointed out the various buildings we were seeing in Manaus from the tower. You could really see for miles.

I went to the botanical garden with my family. My kids loved walking the trail and were very excited about the informations passed through the guide on Amazon nature. We were very well received by employees. It's a nice place! The nature is amazing! We want returning again!

A great insight into the Amazon Rainforest, right inside urban Manaus! Great tracks/short walks inside the jungle, and other nature-oriented attractions!

This place is new to me I did not know existed, so I enjoyed the visit and the tour. It is fantastic the view one has of the tower 40 meters high. And each tree is larger than those in other tracks. The guides were college students and that counts a lot in the Botanical Gardens. If you want to... More
