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.
This park presents a rare opportunity to visit virgin Amazonian rainforest . It’s in the state of Amazonas, 220 km from Manaus, and can be reached by motor boat or canoe. The park shows the exuberance of the Amazonian forest and all its biodiversity of flora and fauna. Excellent for walking tours and canoeing and, clearly, for contemplating the beauty of nature. Also, in the park there is approximately one alligator per kilometre, in all habitats.
It’s also possible to take eco tours from Manaus to Rio Mamoria, which is south of the city, near the Amazonas River and the Transamazônica motorway (the continuation of the Panamericana). And Presidente Figueiredo, 105 km from Manaus, offers archaeological grottos and caves, waterfalls, and native scenes.
