The Botanical Garden it is a place where you can go with your family for a single day of leisure,it´s a place full of history where we find several species of plants, trees, seeds and flowers.
more than 7.000 plants species grow at the Park it is an ecological sanctuary and one of the most important in the world
The park contains 140 species of birds, many of which have become accustomed to humans and are consequently much easier to observe than in the wild. These include the channel-billed toucan, dusky-legged guan and slaty-breasted rail , howler monkeys and tufted-eared marmosets are also frequently seen at the Botanical Gardens.
