Established in the 19th Century, Manaus has grown into the region’s largest city. Famous for its grand opera house and fine cathedral, Manaus is the starting point for cruises along the river and its many tributaries. Cruising is an excellent way to fully appreciate the river, the rainforest and the abundant wildlife. Alternatively there are a number of well-equipped jungle lodges located deep in the rainforest.
