Exploring the Enigmatic Beauty of Manaus, Amazon
The doorway to the Brazilian Amazon is Manaos, a place you can’t believe unless you come and see for yourself. Even then, it is hard to understand how such a cosmopolitan city came to be in the midst of the infinite jungle. Your jaw will simply drop while learning about it, strolling through its streets, and visiting its historical sites. And later on your heart will open as you delve deeper into the surrounding forest. An insightful adventure of jungle walks, nighttime wildlife observations, caimans, pink river dolphins, piranhas, monkeys and more, eagerly awaits. The best way to explore this exuberance is an expedition by boat or in one of the family-run jungle lodges, where locals will passionately share their knowledge about regional customs, edible Amazonian fruits, and medicinal plant life. Is there a more intimate way to uncover this trove of natural and cultural treats than with an engaging voyage aboard a traditional boat, sleeping in hammocks, or staying with local riverside communities?
Going to the Amazon is already a transformative experience, doing it in this way is something that remains for a lifetime.
