      About this Manaus tour

      This one-and-a-half-hour cruise up the Rio Negro and Rio Taruma takes you to a vast natural park crisscrossed by countless narrow, winding streams known as igarapes. You'll explore a few of them on a small boat, then follow your guide for a rainforest trail hike, home to all manner of chittering creatures and exotic birds.

      The jungle teems with life, and you might catch a glimpse of a harpy, toucan, sloth or horned frog. Your guide will point out medicinal herbs that have been curing everything from headaches to snake bites for centuries. Many of the plants here are gathered for use in the developed world's most advanced medicines. And just for good measure, you'll learn which plants are edible, along with other survival tips. Chances are you'll never need them, but a little knowledge can be useful.

      Then you'll meet some distant cousins at the Monkey Forest, where primate specialists rehabilitate monkeys injured by human development for release back into the wild which, in this part of Brazil, is never far away. Howler monkeys, tamarins, and spider monkeys are all common, so make sure your camera is ready they're known to ham it up when entertaining guests.

      You'll also visit an indigenous community where people survive as they always have: fishing, farming, and extracting sap for commercial rubber from the abundant Hevea brasiliensis trees. You'll come away with an appreciation for renewed efforts to protect their way of life and the rainforest that sustains it the Amazon Ecopark itself being one excellent example.
