Manaus, world-known for its eco-tourism, traditional medicines and urban city life
Manaus, a vibrant city situated in the middle of the Amazon, located in the northern part of Brazil, is a unique place and can only be reached by boat or plane. Because of its isolated character, much of its beautiful nature and original culture has been preserved and therefore Manaus is well known for eco-tourism. Manaus provides adventurous travelers the perfect gateway to the overwhelming flora and fauna of the Amazon. Furthermore, people from all over the world visit Manaus because its traditional medicines, derived from plants, can be found here on one of the many markets. But, Manaus also offers to the urban traveler a dynamic city life with fine dining, various parks and a vibrant night life. Manaus was also home to the FIFA World Cup 2014 and because of that the city has built a complete new airport, has improved its infrastructure and mobile internet (4G) has been implemented to improve communications.
Manaus, gateway to the rest of Brazil and Latin America
