A Tourist Guide to the Amazon in Brazilby www.latinamericans.co.uk
A Tourist Guide to the Amazon in BrazilNo trip to Brazil is complete without a tour down the Amazon, one of the largest rivers in the world. Did you know that this River, the Amazon runs more than four thousand miles throughout South America? Tours offered throughout the area showcase the river, and the lush rainforest fauna and flora that are found in the area. Brazil is only one of the six countries which are situated upon the flowing Amazon River, which begins high in the Andes mountainous range.
One of the most popular starting points, where the majority of tours of the Amazon begin is in Manaus, Brazil. The tourist population within this town is high, as there are many features of the Rain Forest besides the starting point for tours. Check out the local culture, the wildlife and only one of its kind plant lives.
It is in Manaus, where the Amazon splits into two rivers, which are visible to one another from each side – and come together again. This meeting point has been come to be known as “The meeting of the waters”. A vacation may start in Manaus and than transform into a small boat cruise throughout the river, seeking all the culture that flows with the river. Throughout the cruises, there are a variety of port stops, allowing tourists to interact with local culture.
Cruise is one of the most popular ways to view the Amazon River at its best. From six to twenty people, the majority of these tours operate with small crews and guests for an intimate experience that allows the visitor to view the wildlife without disturbing the local processes.
Be prepared for these cruises to travel slowly down the river, this is the time to enjoy your holiday. Ensuring that these slow trips are adhered to makes less of an impact on the environment, while allowing the guests on the trip to make the most of their time on the Amazon. These slow rides down the Amazon are never without action, as there is always life to be seen from the banks of the river, whatever you do – don’t forget your camera. These slow rides have increased in popularity as the idea of eco-tourism and sustainability have become a household topic.
Be sure to bring lots of local currency while traveling down the river. The river is the livelihood of many small communities that make their home on the banks. Tourists are often prompted to stop along the way to purchase small artifacts from these small community markets. This glimpse into the natural lives of those that live in the rainforest is a once in a lifetime experience.
When making stops into these small communities it is important to stay with the group and listen closely to the member of group who is guiding the tour. The guide is often full of answers and can answer any question that you may have about the culture. It is not safe to venture away from the group, especially in the small villages and communities that are visited upon while travelling down the Amazon River.
When venturing into the wilderness, it is important to remember that you are in Brazil. When in Brazil, you are going to be exposed to wildlife and insects that you have not seen before. Perhaps, venturing through the rainforest on foot isn’t for the faint of heart. Be prepared for insects, lots of insects.
Are you seeking culture and history in one adventure? Consider a hike down the Inca Amazon Trail. With large periods and an abundance of historical presence, these hikes are popular for travelers in the area. There are natural hot springs, age-old pyramids and up close encounters with wildlife to be seen on these various hikes.
Whether you are seeking a vacation that includes tours of the native culture and settlements and village markets or relaxing hot springs and city tours, the Amazon in Brazil is the place to visit. With the hundreds of species of plants, trees and wildlife – you will most likely see something that you have not had the pleasure of seeing before.
