The Amazon holidays

The Amazon, the world’s largest tropical rainforest, covers almost half of Brazil’s territory. Mighty waters, ranging from yellow-brown to blue-black, cut through the thick jungle. Manaus is a starting point for boat trips to explore the waterways and for stays in eco-lodges, while Tefé is gateway to the flooded forests of the Mamirauá Reserve. Near Altafloresta, in the southern Amazon, the pristine rainforest of the Cristalino private reserve is particularly well known among birders and butterfly enthusiasts. Vibrant Belém, capital of the state of Pará, lies on the southern branch of the Amazon, near the mouth of the river.
