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.

  • One of the locations for your ride in Manaus. Has free parking. Entry into the Park in the amount of $5.00. Park with several explanatory boards, several trails, some loose animals like sloth and agouti. Rico in nature, with a Rico Museum in content. Has many animals and a team able to assist the Park trails. Is a very large park, ideal for picnicking. It has cafeteria, water fountains, toilets and some tricky places for wheelchair users and prams with babies. In general it is essential to visit him.

  • The place counts on the Amazon region showing the fauna and flora of the region. It's not very organized, but it's a ride worth. What I liked most were the tanks with manatees.
