Day 1
Manaus
After arriving in Manaus, the capital of Amazonas, the largest state in Brazil, you will soon appreciate how this modern city is the ideal place to begin exploring the Amazon. Tour boats leave Manaus to see the Meeting of the Waters, where the black waters of the Negro River meet the light waters of the Solimoes River, flowing side by side without mixing for several miles. You can also explore river banks and swim and canoe in placid lakes or simply walk in the lush forest. Overnight at the Tropical Manaus Hotel.
