The Amazon is the world’s largest river system. Much of it flows through moist broadleaf forests similar that found in the Central Amazon region.

This regiont covers 5,500,000 square kilometres (2,100,000 sq mi) and is the largest tract of tropical rainforest in the Americas.

The region has unparalleled biodiversity, as home to about 2.5 million insect species,[27] tens of thousands of plants, and some 2,000 birds and mammals.

One in five of all the bird species in the world live in the rainforests of the Amazon, and one in five of the fish species live in Amazonian rivers and streams.

The biodiversity of plant species is also the highest on Earth. To date, an estimated 438,000 species of plants of economic and social interest have been registered in the region with many more remaining to be discovered or catalogued.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.

Scenic Waterways

Meeting of the Waters

This natural phenomenon is caused by the confluence of the Negro River's dark water and the Solimões River's muddy brown water that come together to form the Amazonas River. For 6 km (3.7 mi), both rivers waters run side by side, without mixing. This phenomenon is caused by the great difference between the water temperatures, acidity, and current speeds.

Rio Acajatuba

Acajatuba River, a tributary of the Rio Negro (Black River), in the city limit of Iranduba, approximately 32 miles away from the capital Manaus. It is near the world’s largest complex of river islands, Anavilhanas Archipelago (over 400 islands) and Boiaçu Bay, which according to the legends, is the home of a gigantic snake.
Tropical Forests
The Amazonia rainforest is one of the world’s most biologically diverse locations. Ecological tours of the Amazon are popular. The tours include boat rides, overnight at forest lodges and forest hikes.

Amazônia National Park (Parque Nacional da Amazônia)

This park was created in 1974, as an integral protection area comprising 1.070.737 ha. It is located in Itaituba and Trairão municipalities, Pará state, in the north of Brazil. Its specific objectives are preserving various amazonic ecosystems, with scientific, education and recreation means.

Mamirauá Sustainable Development Reserve

The Mamirauá Sustainable Development Reserve in the Brazilian state of Amazonas, near the city of Tefé, is a 22,000-square-mile (57,000 km2) reserve that includes mostly Amazonian flooded forest and wetlands. This is one of the largest flooded forest reservations in the world, with 1,1 million hectares, and up to 80 continuous kilometers of flooded area. In this reservation, more than 300 species of fishes were identified, including ornamental fishes such as the acará-disk. In addition, about 400 species of birds and at least 45 species of mammals live in the reservation's area.
Wildlife and Plants
The area hosts a large diversity of birds, with more than 400 species recorded, including toucans, harpy eagle, hoatzin, 15 species of parrots and, specially, aquatic birds. Two species of monkeys, the white uakari and the black squirrel monkey are endemic of this region, which is also home of other kinds of arboreal mammals such as howler monkeys, sloths, coati and collared anteaters. Land mammals are not that common as most of the territory is flooded during the wet season. During this season the pink dolphin is distributed in the flooded forest.
