Full description
Learn about the history and culture of Manaus, Amazona's capital in the heart of the Amazon rainforest. Then take a speedboat down the Amazon River to witness the Meeting of the Waters and a floating village.   You’ll be picked up from your hotel and drive to the historical center of "old Manaus." On a walking tour through town, notice the facades of the neoclassical buildings created during the rubber boom of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Visit the majestic Amazon Theatre opera house in the main square, and head to the market complex to see the three buildings known as the banana market, fish market, and municipal market. Check out the Rio Negro Palace, formerly a German rubber baron's residence that is now a museum. Next you will drive through the port and embark on a speedboat to witness the most impressive phenomenon of the Rio Negro and Amazon River, or Solimões River as it is called upstream, that run side by side without mixing their waters. Then venture to the floating village where all the houses, school, churches, bars, restaurants, and other structures are built on logs to float on the lake. Disembark at a floating fish farm and have an encounter with one of the biggest freshwater fish in the world, the famous pirarucu.   Get back in the boat for a nice ride upstream heading to Lake January, filled with giant waterlilies. Have a walk on a suspended walkway as high as the canopy of the trees, and see the sumaumeira, the biggest species of tree in the Amazon.
