Brazil Travel: Manaus

Manaus is the capital of the state of Amazonas and lies between the Rio Negro and the Rio Amazonas. The metropolis has 1.8 million inhabitants and is an absolute highlight for nature lovers when traveling to Brazil, as it is located in the middle of an extraordinarily biodiverse rainforest. It is the starting point for jungle expeditions and day trips, as well as a cultural center. Above all, don't miss the famous Teatro Amazonas, which is a protected historical monument. Museum lovers are also in the right place in Manaus. Exhibits from the life of the local population as well as numerous exhibits about the rich flora and fauna of the surrounding area can be viewed. Also worth seeing is the Mercado Municipal Adolpho Lisboa. Here you can buy meat, fish, vegetables, exotic spices and fruits, not to mention the perfect souvenir to solidify your trip. A popular excursion destination nearby is the Encontro das Aguas (meeting of waters). The deep dark Rio Negro and the muddy-white Rio Solimoes flow 3.7 miles (6 kilometers) side by side before they merge impressively. Also recommended in Manaus is the season of Carnival, when you experience the second world capital of samba in an exuberant celebratory mood. Manaus has hot temperatures year round. The average temperature ranges between 72 °F (22 °C) and 91 °F (33 °C). The lowest rainfall and maximum amount of sunshine occur during the winter (June-August). An umbrella is recommended from December to April.
