The month of October is coming to an end, and for this weekend there is a variety of tours and attractions in Manaus to be visited, as well as a lot of activities that can be done, alone or in the company of friends, family or your romantic couple.
Don’t waste your time and come check out the best attractions for this weekend in Manaus!
Unfortunately, the beaches and floating houses remain inaccessible in respect to the recommendations due to the new coronavirus. But there are still many places to visit during this weekend in Manaus, following all the security and hygiene protocols.
Aboard a boat such as motorboats, yachts or a regional boat, you can check out a variety of natural attractions, knowing fantastic attractions.
Waterfront of Manaus
How about seeing the edge of Manaus aboard a boat, being able to observe the highest constructions of the city, as well as the historical and important constructions that were part of the golden age of rubber?
Its view, from the river to the city, is able to see the old building of Miranda Côrrea Brewery, today deactivated and abandoned, but that has a beautiful architecture.
Besides this, it is also possible to observe the Rio Negro Park on the São Raimundo shore, and other buildings such as the majestic Teatro Amazonas itself, the Igreja da Matriz, and the Port of Manaus.
Interaction Platform with the Botos
We can mention the Platform of Interaction with the porpoises, a natural spectacle where you can see the most docile aquatic animal that exists and lives in fresh water.
On the floating house in the city of Iranduba, 180 km from Manaus, you can interact with the boto and get one of the most fascinating experiences of your life!
The indigenous communities contribute to the tourist development of the region. In Manaus we have the example of the Cipiá and Dessana Tukana Indigenous Communities, located in the Tupé Sustainable Development Reserve (RDS) in the rural area of the city of Manaus.
Being accessible only by boats, this space is used by these communities for integration with tourists and the promotion of cultural exchange.
The indigenous communities in RDS provide tourists with contact and understanding of their culture and customs, where presentations of regional rituals, tasting of typical foods and the rich variety of handicrafts produced, are commonly offered. All these activities have a strong appeal for social inclusion and knowledge of the local culture of these people.
The communities welcome tourists with handmade instruments, songs, dances and rituals, in addition to telling about their history, customs and costumes. Originally the ritual presented lasts 24 hours, but they only present a quick sample of their culture.
The community presents the handicraft they produce which is also their source of income, and finally, they invite tourists to taste some typical snacks of their culture.
It is important to remember that these communities live off tourism, due to their location in a protected reserve, they cannot hunt, so they depend exclusively on the earnings obtained through the visits.
Thus, the visit to the site brings benefits to the tourist and to the indigenous community.
