Inexpensive, total security, good to learn about local and exotic plants. Find the biggest flower in America, the Victoria Regia. A good place to sit and read if you have the time.

These very charming gardens, a wonderful place for a walk and for quiet meditation, shows beauty from Brazilian flora and many birds. The surrounding sites also allow you to have nice meals after your walk.
