Floating Dock, Manaus

2.1
The geography of the Amazonian region is rife with obstacles, so many locals travel between cities by boat. Floating docks are a common stopping point for supplies and connections to cities for these local transport boats, and Floating Dock is one of these docks with access to Manaus. Although, there are some cafes and some shopping nearby, its value is as a slice of life experience for the visitor. Here, you will see local fisherman stocking and unloading, cruise ships taking a breather, and transport boats almost completely covering the surface of the water. The hustle and bustle harkens docks of old and you may recall stories about of jungle stopping points from Conrad, or Marquez.

On the shore you'll see colonial architecture being reclaimed by nature with vines protruding from windows and the a pastel paint taking on a magical air. These are a popular image for photographs and  a truly original moment to send the folks back home. Plan my trip to Manaus with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • To make the boat trip to the meeting of the waters, the same for this harbor where you can buy water and snacks

  • The place is very busy and so it requires a lot of attention, because it is full of people, goods coming and going, boat rides, a variety of tools for trip-networks (most usual accommodation option in long-distance boats), rope hammocks, bags boxes, styrofoam, food, drinks and more a multitude of things only a port can have.

  • For who is a native of São Paulo, I loved knowing the location, lack a bit of organization, but all very beautiful and interesting.
