Manaus is an urban territory in northern Brazil that serves as capital city of the state of Amazonas. Home to the Free Economic Zone (or Industrial Park of Manaus), its activity attracts business travellers and tourists alike but, without a doubt, those who dream of venturing into the Amazon rainforest are the ones who most frequently choose this destination as a strategic point from where they can take tours down the river and into the Brazilian Amazon to marvel at its unique animal and plant species and get acquainted with the traditional customs of the native tribes, still preserved today by some communities. However, if you are simply looking for a beach escape, Manaus might as well be for you: it also has beautiful beaches, like Praia da Ponta Negra -13 kilometres from the city centre- or the fluvial Praia do Tupé at the edge of the River Negro. Due to its particular location, getting to Manaus implies taking a boat trip or catching a flight to Manaus International – Eduardo Gomes airport. To ensure you do not miss out on anything it has to offer, we recommend that you stay in a hotel in central Manaus, as it will make it easier to commute to the aforementioned attractions by bus or car.
