Amazon & Manaus
One of Brazil’s most iconic regions, the Amazon is the largest tropical rainforest in the world and stretches across nine South American countries. Over half of the Amazon rainforest is located in Brazil with Manaus the main gateway for visitors. Manaus itself makes an interesting half-day tour and was once an important centre in the production of rubber. During the boom years an opera house was built to keep the European workers entertained and magical opera concerts are still performed today although not very frequently.
The Amazon is literally miles from anywhere and a minimum stay of 3-4 nights is necessary to make it worthwhile including a trip here. It’s a fascinating experience with over 10% of the world’s known species found in the rainforest. Lodges are dotted along the riverbanks and these are ideal for an all-round Amazon experience, but to see wildlife it’s better to head for the virgin rainforest further afield, away from the working river.
