Amazon Rainforest   


The Amazon rainforest is the natural choice for ecotourism and sport fishing lovers. The region has a well developed ecotourism industry with high standard tours that are conducted by well trained guides who have survival training.

The visitor can truly learn about and value the rainforest, its inhabitants, its animals and plants and how important the conservation of this natural treasure is.

When it comes to Brazil travel, the Amazon is, by all means, the adventure destination. There are hotels in the middle of the jungle. That is right. It is a great opportunity to spend the night amongst monkeys, alligators and river dolphins. Believe it or not, they are luxurious lodges.

Some are floating hotels offering the visitor an opportunity to be in complete harmony with the rainforest. Others don’t even have electricity, giving you a chance to check out the way of living of the local inhabitants of the rivers.

If this is your thing, you can even opt for sleeping on top of a tree, Tarzan’s style. Anywhere you choose to stay, morning comes with tropical birds singing and a warm breeze to greet a new day.

Amazon world

Everything is overwhelming about the Amazon rainforest; it enfolds nine Latin American countries: Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, French Guiana and Suriname and Venezuela.

The Brazilian Amazon comprises 60% of the entire Amazon region and almost half of Brazil. Its beauty, mystery and diversity bestow fascination upon the whole world.

The Brazilian Amazon rainforest is composed of nine states: Acre, Amapá, Amazonas, Maranhão, Mato Grosso, Pará, Rondônia, Roraima and
Tocantins. Amazonas, Brazil’s largest state, is in the heart of the jungle and it is home to the largest part of the rainforest.

Several Indian tribes live in the Amazon region, 98% of all the Indians in Brazil. Anthropologists say there are tribes that live in the core of the forest, that haven’t had contact with the “civilized” world.

How to get there

One way of getting to the heart of the jungle is by flying to Manaus, capital of the state of Amazonas. From there, you can go on fishing expeditions and jungle and river tours.

Another route would start at Belém, capital of the state of Pará. You can take a cruise down the Amazon to Manaus.  This is a great way to see the jungle from the relative comfort of a boat, it takes around 5 days.

It is an adventure. You can experience the sounds or the silence of the Amazon. But you have to prepare yourself for the lack of comfort.

The boats are small and the accomodations are cramped. No Queen Elizabeth Cruises in the Amazon. So... you have to sleep on a hammock. The menu is limited and simple. The restrooms are basic and sometimes not very attractive. So take some disinfectant sprays and wipes.

Just think about the adventure you could have and good luck!
