Manaus, one of Brazil's richest cities, is located at the point where the River Amazon officially starts. Without any road links to the rest of the country, it underwent a huge transformation thanks to the rubber boom in the 19C and became the "Paris of the Tropics". This vast city is the result of the incredible and terrifying madness of the men of the period. Amid one of the richest areas of biodiversity on the planet, you will be spellbound by the combination of concrete jungle and spectacular nature.
