GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The Amazon rainforest, covering much of northwestern Brazil and extending into Colombia, Peru and other South American countries, is the world’s largest tropical rainforest, famed for its biodiversity. It’s crisscrossed by thousands of rivers, including the powerful Amazon. River towns, with 19th-century architecture from rubber-boom days, include Brazil’s Manaus and Belém and Peru’s Iquitos and Puerto Maldonado.

FABIO'S REVIEW

Green-Visiting
Green-Triangular

An absolute MUST-SEE, for the most adventurous. Fish piranhas, swim with pink dolphins, catch baby caimans with bare hands in pitch-black darkness, pet sloths and anacondas, meet super-cute indios kids, run away from enormous spiders, cruise along the river while listening to Popol Vuh’s epic soundtrack of Aguirre … and then suit up, date a hot Brazilian and listen to mediaeval music in the breathtaking Amazon theater.

One of the top 3 destinations in the entire Latin America, along with Ujuni and the Perito Moreno glacier.
