Parque Ecologico Januari, Manaus

(4.5/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
To see the sights of the Amazon rain forest firsthand visit Parque Ecologico Januari, a natural reserve of 3.6422 sq m (9,000 acres) of dry land forests, low lands, and flooded forests. As you canoe on the lakes and streams, through large and small trees with lianas and vegetation typical of this ecosystem, explore the plants that grow in the Amazon. In particular, don’t miss the chance to see the symbol of the region, the water lilly (Amazon Victória or Nympheaceae), a plant that spreads its round leaves on the shallow waters, measuring up to 2 m (7 ft) in diameter. The flower lasts only three days. It starts out white when it blossoms, then turns lilac and finally dark red. the park is located at the Negro River, about an hour from Manaus by boat. Don't miss the Meeting of the Water, the spectacular junction of the Negro and Solimoes Rivers. Use our Manaus tour planner to add Parque Ecologico Januari and other attractions to your Manaus vacation plans.

  • It is possible to sight them upstairs, assembled, and take pictures. Understand more about this plant that represents so well the Amazonia and figure in all the books.

  • Very beautiful WINS-regia. Take mosquito repellent because it's a Bayou of the solimões River and has a lot of bug. I thought wrong tourist feeding them the monkeys so they approach.

  • It's an interesting ride, the vitória-régia is beautiful and good contact with the nature. The food served is also very good and varied. Who venture in fisheries should be caution: one of the guys in our group almost had his finger cut off by a piranha (and he is an experienced person, not a mere curious).

  • Up close with nature in the heart of the Amazon. Very unique experience not to be missed if you are anywhere close to Manaus.
  • Wonderful place where you get to see the nature of the Amazon. Don't forget to drop by the place with the anaconda and the sloth (ask your boat driver).
