Explore the wonders of the Brazilian Amazon!
Manaus, whose name originated from the Manaos Indians, which inhabited the region, is situated on the left bank of the Rio Negro, close to the meeting of the waters with Rio Solimões (Solimões River) waters. The point where the Rio Negro meets the Rio Solimões leads a spectacular phenomenon. The black water of the Negro River runs side by side with the creamy coloured water of the Solimões River for about 4 to 6 kilometers without mixing, due to the different water characteristics (temperature – density – speed), before forming the magnificent Amazon River. Ecotourism is a fast growing niche type of tourism.
There are several ways to see the wonders of the Amazon: hotels, lodges and boat tours. We consider that the best way to see and enjoy nature, especially on the amazing waterways of the Amazon, is to be agile in this wonderful environment and to be always in the midst of the jungle, especially at dawn and dusk.
