  • A beautiful park and museum set in the city centre. The plant life, trees and wildlife offers a glimpse of the Amazon and is welcome relief to the hustle and bustle of life in Belem. My girlfriend and I visited the park without the knowledge that you need to reserve in advance, but the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Bruno especially was very attentive and professional. A must see attraction if you are visiting Belem, and even if you have been to the Amazon!
