    Favorite thing: the Rainforest will surprise and dazzle you with it's Flora and Fauna. halfday or daytrips into the Rainforest can be booked in Manaus

    Fondest memory: Tree Orchids I have seen in abundance, the finest Flowers one can imagine.
    a fortune worth on the open markets.

    Favorite thing: from the cruise, passing by little settlements, or Missionstations for the Indians, where medical help was offered, a little church in the Jungle, communities in remoteness. and the Radio station the connection to the rest of the world

    Fondest memory: one of my great expirience, shipping down the Amazon, the many noises in the nite, Birds of Paradise..chatterboxes or warningsystem, never cold make that out..maybe the snake was on the prawl again.Monkeys chuckling.. Jacares on the hunt, now and then big splashes in the water, catch??

    Middle of the day and before & after rain

    by penpoison Written Mar 2, 2003

    Favorite thing: Refrain from strenuous activities in the middle of the day since it can get really hot and humid. Also during the rainy season, the locals meet before or after the rain. There is usually a downpour in the afternoon and people time their meeting before or after it rains. The downpour normally lasts a few minutes but boy does it pour.

    Fondest memory: 1. jungle trek
    2. music in town square
    3. opera house

    The Rain Forest & Manaus

    by Andreas_Fran Written Feb 25, 2003

    Favorite thing: If you have many days disponible, you should take few of them to go round the town. (check Must See Activity Tips)
    Don't waste long time searching for guided tours for the Amazon. You should go straight to authorized specialized Tour Operators and not to small agents that promise a lot amd give little. At the airport you can go directly to the Tourist Authorities to get all informations you need about the organized (or not) tours.
    The best way to do tourism in Amazonas is to choose trip in regional ships, crossing the rivers Solimões (loamy waters) and dark water, where you have the opportunity to visit a diversity of ecosystems, knowing and contacting the riverine population...
