GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Manaus city is the capital of the vast state of Amazonas. It's a major departure point for the surrounding Amazon Rainforest. Just east of the city, the dark Negro River converges with the brown, muddy Solimões River resulting in a striking visual phenomenon called the “Meeting of the Waters”. The combined tributaries form the Amazon River.

FABIO'S REVIEW

Yellow-Living
Green-Visiting

Manaus is a large town, isolated in the middle of the enormous Amazon jungle. Most excursions start from here. It seems an expensive dump at first (all goods must be shipped with planes, hence the higher costs), but visit the historical center, especially the breathtaking colonial theater - straight out of the Fitzcarraldo movie.

For lodging, I stayed first in the "Hotel Colonial" which was horrible, and then in the Lieder Hotel. No good value for money, but in Manaus everything is more expensive.
