Unique and idiosyncratic, the extravagant Ariau Amazon Towers, accessible by boat from Manaus, lies between the tea (without milk) -coloured Rio Negro and the dense Amazon Rainforest. Brightly coloured Macaws, troupes of monkeys and spider monkeys hang about checking out the eco-tourists. You stay in treetop rooms or tree houses, linked by about five miles of wooden catwalks looking down on the rainforest floor. Expert guides, mostly from the local area, take you deep into the forest on survival trips, discovering the extraordinary diversity of the Amazon rainforest and it’s importance to the world.
Teatro Amazonas is an opera house in Manaus, located in the heart of the Amazon rainforest. It is a stunning building inside and out and particularly beautiful at night. It was so suprising finding a theatre like this in such a remote location and the tour we had was brilliant. Definitely recommend going if you ever find yourself in Manaus on the way in to the Amazon - be sure to take the guided tour which is available in English.

The staff were very helpful and excellent. Illeana could afford to smile a bit more, though. Roni was an excellent and hardworking guide. Lilliani was a very intelligent young girl with a lot of charm and enthusiasm. The meals prepared by her mother were good. The grilled fish prepared by Roni in the jungle was excellent. Saw some wildlife - macacas do cheiro, the big one maybe a spider monkey and a porco do espinha (as well as a Vagalumi and a few birds). The sounds of the jungle were amazing.
The water pump is way too noisy, by the way.
