Tingo María is a very green city. The jungle does not stop at the limits of the city, the streets and squares are full of trees. It is not surprising that in Tingo María you can discover things that have something to do with nature.
One of the places you should definitely visit is the Botanical Garden. It is located in the outskirts and houses about 7,500 species of plants and trees. As you walk along the paths, you will think you are in the middle of the jungle. Ferns and trees rise, birds chirp in the trees.
In the botanical garden also live some species of monkeys. If you want to know more about the flora and fauna of the area, go to the Museum of Zoology, where, in addition to mammals, reptiles and birds, especially the collection of butterflies, draws attention.
The Zoocriadero contributes to the preservation of the species. The extensive areas provide a habitat for rare animals, some illegally captured animals are brought there and then released into the wild. But if you just want to enjoy the city, Tingo María is the place for you. The Plaza de Armas is a mixture of modern architecture and gardens where people meet. Directly on the Plaza de Armas is the church of Santa Teresa del Niño Jesús, an example of the sacred architecture of the 20th century.
