Bosque da Ciencia, Manaus

(4.1/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Manaus itinerary maker to add Bosque da Ciencia and other attractions to your Manaus vacation plans.

  • I didn't much like because it looks more like a Zoo, what I'm against. Small for the manatees and alligators. I was hoping that the animals were released.

  • I liked the visit I made with my niece, beautiful place, fair price. Ideal for being in contact with nature, enjoying the local flora and fauna.
