Destination Travel Guide: Brazilian Amazon

southern Brazil AmazonAlthough the Amazon rainforest sprawls across territories of nine South American nations, 60% of its expanse lies inside the borders of Brazil. Combined, its eco-regions make up more than half of all remaining rain forests on the planet, making it one of the richest depositories of both fauna and flora. The result is the Amazon rain-forest teeming with opportunities for both eco-tourism and exotic nature adventures.

• Jau National Park is ideal for travelers interested in seeing the Amazon rainforest while retaining access to comfortable accommodations. It is one of the few national parks possessing the infrastructure needed to support the influx of tourists. However, it is also famous for renting out canoes that can be used to cross its vast expanse.

• Mamiraua is almoamazon slothsst covered in flooded rainforest, meaning that sightseeing is best done using rented canoes. However, there are also hiking trails marked for the sake of intrepid travelers. Exotic animal species such as sloths, toucans, and even pink dolphins can all be found in this reserve.

Given the sheer size of the Amazon rain forest  it should come as no surprise that there are other tropical frogssightseeing opportunities out there. Since the Amazon rainforest is lacking in tourism infrastructure, travelers should consider hiring specialized guides to see some of the more exotic but also less accessible sites.

We’ll be doing just that in our upcoming Brazil group tour!!!
