A different place for you to meet different exotic plants from Brazil and the world. There are plants from the Amazon, such as Vitória Regia (Victoria amazonica) to gigantic trees with meters high as well as Açacu.

I've been to a few botanical gardens and I think this is the best one I've ever seen. The orchid house was great. We saw a couple of monkeys and a huge iguana just casually strolling by.
