The setting was beautiful, right on the river. Only caveat is bring Google Translate if you do not speak Portugese! The menu is in Portugese and the waiters do not seem to speak any other languages

We came for brunch and enjoyed walking around the nature park and elevated gazebo above the mangroves. Natural setting for all ages.

Don't miss the walk out the boardwalk to the water and the mangroves, the butterfly house, the birds, the lizards lounging on the lawns. The restaurant is excellent too, day or night!

We stayed just around the corner of the botanical garden. Spending an afternoon here was a great way of enjoying the nice weather. Entry is free to the park, but there are some exhibitions that require a small entry fee. For sure worth a visit if in Belém.

Nice view, there are five attractions total, including the tower which offers a nice view and a museum, nice for those interested in maritimes or history. In my opinion the best attraction is for free, to see nature and the herons. There is also a great view of the river side.

The entrance to the park is free but you have to pay to visit some specific sections and to go up the elevator for the view (this last one... More

Mangal das Garças is a wonderful park located in front of Guajará bay. You can lunch and taste the local food that is marvelous and enjoy afternoon breeze looking the bay view. Must come place in Belem.

Highly recommend visiting this park in late afternoon. For 15 rials you can purchase a pass to the aviary, butterfly center and tower. We ended up in the tower last right before closing time at sunset and the view was incredible! A beautiful place -take your time!
