    Carnival in the Amazon rainforest - Parintins

    by maharaja_joe Updated Feb 8, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Parintins is a two day boat ride away from Manaus. One can also fly from Manaus and reach Parintins in a few hours.

    I drifted down the Amazon river on a banana boat for days. The boat was the only mode of transporation for the locals. My broken portuguese and my brazilian friend, Claudiomar, ensured that we hang out with the locals. We talked about Washington DC, where I lived and Bombay, where I grew up. I watched in amazement as caboclo families, dressed in their Sunday best, rowed their little canoes to attend mass at the river-side churches. I danced with the local girls, drank the cachaca and ate the feijoadas.

    We were on a trip to Parintins to attend the Boi Bumba festival. Details of the Parintins trip are available on a different web page

    see the river

    by lomi Updated Mar 15, 2005

    take a cruise or excursion to see the river. keep your hands in the boat, wear long sleeved clothes and never, never pee in the river!

    Electric eels, stingrays & piranhas apart, the world's largest snake, the anaconda drags its pray under the water, drowns it and swallows it whole.

    If you fly into Manaus, this is what you will see below you, the winding Amazon.

    Not exactly off the beaten path, but a fairly good sunset picture, if I do say so myself.
