The state of Amazonas is of immeasurable wealth. Even being part of a territory as vast and as diverse as that of España, it still deserves to be highlighted due to its historical importance and its biodiversity.

Home to the largest tropical forest in the world, Amazonas has a unique nature, with fauna and flora so vast that they arouse the curiosity of people from all over the world to come and honor the Amazon rainforest in person.



The capital Manaus also draws the attention of tourists. With good tours and attractive activities, the city complements the itineraries of those who are going to visit the state. But the great protagonist of the region is nature, which takes care of much of the largest state in the country and, in addition to its constant presence, houses an ecosystem full of treasures.

What to do in Amazon

The activities of the Amazon are numerous. Starting with the capital, Manaus, where visitors are enchanted by the architecture of the buildings of Teatro Amazonas and Palácio Rio Negro. Continuing on to the tours that involve nature, one of the most unmissable is the boat trip to the meeting of the waters of the Negro and Solimões rivers.


The Anavilhanas National Park holds other unique riches, such as the Grutas do Madadá and the group of islands that form one of the largest river archipelagos in the world.


The Jaú National Park is also an important visit, and has several waterfalls to visit. Another interesting tour is to observe the famous pink dolphins that are so typical of the Amazon.

Where to stay in Amazon

There are great accommodations in Amazonas, with a wide variety of types of accommodation. A great highlight, however, are the so-called “selva hotel” (or jungle lodge), alternatives that have everything to do with the state, as they offer accommodation in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest.

In addition to the unique experience, the experience is even more complete with tours – which take place during the day or night, and range from watching alligators, hiking through the forest, visiting native communities, among many other attractions.
