Manaus / Amazon


Manaus is located in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest. It is situated on the banks of the Negro River and is a major departure point for exploring the Rainforest. East of the city, the waters of the Negro River run side by side with the waters of the Solimoes River, which then converge to create the Amazon River, the largest river in the world. Although it is a proper city, Manaus prides itself in preserving the habitats of native Brazilian tribes more than any other urban area in Brazil.
