MANAUS & THE AMAZON RAIN FOREST

The State of the Amazons covers an area of over 1,5 million sq km and is Brazil's largest state. Approximately 75% of its inhabitants lives in the capital, Manaus. The city lies 3° South of the equator, on the northern bank of the river Rio Negro, 10km upstream from the confluence of the Solimoes and Negro rivers, which join and form the Amazon River. There is an interesting phenomenon, the "Encontro das Įguas" (Meeting of waters), the point where the inky-black waters of the Rio Negro meet the clay-yellow waters of the Rio Solimoes - it is a must to see this. Other interesting parts of Manaus are close to the waterfront: Mercado Municipal, fish market at night, the customs house and the floating docks. If you have one day extra in Manaus you could visit Shopping Cecomiz (Zona Franca) and buy electronic equipments etc. The opera house is one of the most impressive reminders of Manaus' past opulence. But the main reason to visit Manaus for most foreign visitors are of course the jungle tours. Here, it's possible to arrange anything from day trips and overnight excursions, to months of travel in the hinterland. There are several options of cruisers and hotels in the jungle.

The climate is hot and humid during the whole year, which is divided in two seasons - summer and winter. It is considered to be summer between July and November, when it rains less and it is hotter. During winter it rains more and the water level in rivers and the landscape increase. The flooded land reaches the highest levels between March and April and the lowest between August and October. The temperature varies between 20° and 30°C in average during the year, and the relative humidity vary between 80% and 90%. You can travel to the Amazon (the region of Manaus) during the whole year with no problem to experience what the jungle has to provide, but if you can choose period, you may avoid the period with the most intensive rainfalls, between December and February (But this is the period of most tourists. It uses to rain every second day with some sun between). September & October can be quite hot and have low water levels, which make difficulties to travel by boat in some areas. The best might be between March and June when it rains less intensive, but the water levels are still high and facilitate tours by boats in the flooded land. During summer it comes dryer and it appears non flooded areas, when you cannot access some areas by boat anymore, but on the other hand the chance to observe the wildlife like Alligators and Capybaras increase.
