If you want to add the Amazon to your package, you will be brought from Rio all the way to Manaus, the main city. Despite the constant urban development in the area, the city remains to be a sight to see because of its European style. The city was mainly built by the Europeans in the Rubber boom. Also huge international vessels and regional boats are all together at dock, arriving and leaving the port, right next to the market where you can find traditional food and handcrafts. If you wish to get along with the natives, you can always head to local bar and you will probably dance Forro, traditional music of the North part of the country.

Then, you can head to an Amazon lodge, where you will never really run out of activities, including bird watching, alligator spotting, piranha fishing, jungle hiking and of course swim on the waters of the Negro River. All that with more than specialized guides speaking English fluently.
