The Amazon Sights



INPA–Bosque da Ciência

INPA–Bosque da Ciência Review

Used as a research station for the INPA (Instituto Nacional de Pesquisa da Amazônia), this slice of tropical forest is home to a great diversity of flora and fauna. Some highlights include manatee tanks, caiman ponds, a museum, a botanical garden with an orchidarium, and nature trails. It's a great place for a walk in the shade.
