Amazonas is such a rich region, with so many cultural activities to do. The best way of exploring it is with an experienced guide, who can show you the Indian villages and the Rubber Museum (one of the oldest traditional activities in Brazil).
What to Expect
Depart from Manaus to Vila Paraíso (the set of the movie “The Jungle”). Your visit begins at a waterfront warehouse where rubber boards boats to be shipped around the world. Here we will enter the Rubber Master House whose majestic architecture shows the wealth of Brazilian rubber plantations from the industry boom and war effort.
During the tour, visit the “large tent” where rubber making tools were kept. You will also see the “chapel” and the flour warehouse. Then walk along a short trail into the jungle to see rubber trees as well as witness the process of collecting it. You will see where rubber balls were placed to begin the smoking process. Finally, visit the modest houses where the rubber extraction employees lived. The home portrays the life and habits of the old rubber extraction era.
Visit an indigenous village during this tour from Manaus. Accompanied by your local guide, travel by speedboat deep into the Amazon forest. Meet members of the Dessano and Tucano tribes in their native villages to see how they live! You will return to Manaus with a brief stop at Tupé Beach where there might be a possibility of swimming. The estimated arrival time at the hotel is at 13:00.
