Manaus

Paris of the Tropics

It's hard not to get excited when planning a trip to Manaus, capital of the state of Amazonas, and the largest city on the mighty Amazon River. A hive of urban activity in the middle of the vast rainforest, the city of 2 million people serves as the most convenient gateway for tourism in the Amazon, as well as the financial and industrial hub of the region. Head down to the docks to observe the uncanny spectacle of ocean-ready ships pulling into the bustling port, more than 1,500 km (930 mi) away from the nearest ocean. Despite the city's largely industrial atmosphere, sightseeing in Manaus reveals some fascinating colonial buildings hidden among the busy streets. When using our Brazil vacation trip planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
