This is a big park with native plant and animal species from Amazon, and also a lovely museum. I asked a guide, and all animals there were rescued from traffic or illegal owners. Very recommended!

Pretty low entrance fee to see a bunch of cool regional animals, plants and trees. The museum within also had a cool exhibit on the Amazon as a whole ecosystem.

Lovely collection of animals outdoors right in the middle of bustling Belem. I also liked the indigenous exhibits in the hall.

I was very surprised to find something like this in a rushing city like Belem. The visit was very relaxing and cold. Nice example of paranese nature and animals. Id definitelly come with kids. Beware of closing hours they close around 17-18 every day.
