the Amazon, Brazil

The Brazil Travel Blog has been five years on the road and during that time we’ve devoted plenty of attention to the Amazon region. It is a part of Brazil as coveted by foreign tourists as devoid of reliable and independent travel information. This is a summary of what we have published on the region so far:

1. General information

2. Information on destinations

We have five information cards for Amazon destinations:

We have written with quite some detail on two of those destinations:

2.1 Manaus

As well as the information card destination: Manaus, we prepared a map of Manaus, blogged on the wonderful Teatro Amazonas, perhaps the only unmissable sight in the city; went off the beaten track to eat at the peixaria do Jokka Loureiro fish restaurant in Manaus; visited the awesome Meeting of the Waters and the Janauary Ecological Park, near Manaus and became worried by a new threat in the shape of a gigantic bridge.

2.2 Alter do Chão

As well as the information card destination: Alter do Chão and the river Tapajós, on our favourite Amazon destination, we gave plenty of details on the trips around Alter do Chão.

3. Photos

All the photos you will see on this blog post as well as many more can be found at our Flickr albums:

Google made it possible recently to tour the Amazon with Street View.
