Bosque da Ciencia, Manaus

4.1
#5 of 48 in Outdoors in Manaus
Home to such strange and lovable creatures as the capybara and the manatee, Bosque da Ciencia is an intimate space for crowd-pleasing species. A small path through the park allows you to stroll where the capybaras, monkeys, and sloth bears roam free. Buy a bag of turtle food at one of the kiosks and look for your shelled friends at the pools. The pools are scattered throughout the park at different levels, so you’ll have to climb stairs to reach some of them. However, the major attraction of the park is the science museum, where you’ll find hands-on, family-friendly exhibits that make science fun for all ages. Access to the park is easiest by taxi. You’ll find them waiting in a line outside the park’s entrance, waiting for fares.

    It's a piece of the Amazon rainforest in Manaus city. Information of the forest are given within the House of science, where there are lectures on studies of the Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas da Amazônia-INPA.. Manatee tanks are the joy of the children.

    Great place to take kids. To learn about the flora and fauna of the Amazon. Prefer the hours earlier by the heat.

    A beautiful place to take a walk in nature, hiking on the trails, chat, read a book, think about life. A fabulous ride and super cheap, ideal to take children to have this contact with the environment.
