Manaus Travel Tips
Most visitors to Manaus come for one main reason: it is the mouth of the Amazon. This international port city is fairly pedestrian but serves as a jumping off point to explore the mysteries and discoveries of the Amazon River and jungle. While in town, be sure to check out Encontro das Aguas, the confluence of the Rio Negro and the Solimoes.
From there, journey into the Amazon for deep exploration of one of the most diverse and expansive ecosystems on the planet. With new species discovered almost daily and thriving communities of birds, pink dolphins, and wildlife, there is much to celebrate in this area. Be your own Indiana Jones when you discover the Brazil surrounding Manaus.
