  • Anavilhanas is a ecological park and tourism is contemplative. The best is to go on full of rivers, from January to June, when it enters the flooded forest (igapó) and browsing for your interior. In addition to showing the colors of the forest, hear numerous sounds of birds and birds that are the treetops. In the dry season, from September to December, the baths on the beaches of rivers and trails in the forest are also fantastic. Take plenty of pictures and be sure to be with clothes and comfortable shoes. In full, if it remains in vessels and in dry, lightweight running shoes and sunscreen, because if you're going to walk the trails. Take the opportunity to learn a little about the dolphins (dolphins) in the city of Novo Airão, on the front of the Park.
