Random choice of city for Carnival- Amazonia style!
Posted January 19th, 2013 - 1:38 pm by from Exeter, England (Permalink)
Any one spent Carnival in the Amazon?
I will be somewhere in the area and would like opinions on where would be best to spend it.
To be honest I am not a great lover of huge gritty cities and of surging crowds so maybe that counts out Manaus?

So-
Belem,
Santarem,
Manaus

or slightly different would be San Luis?

please share your experiences here!
anyone else planning to be somwehere on the great river/s?

Hi,
Im going to Manaus for Carnival with my girlfriend. I think the city has lots to offer: from carnival parties until nature and untouched forests. The traditional Carnival of Manaus includes parades of samba schools in the "Sambódromo", just like in Rio de Janeiro. You can also visit the connection between the "Rio Negro" and "Rio Solimões", that form the Amazon River. Another choice is to search for alligators in a night boat ride...it's gonna be my first time there, Im from the South of Brasil and hope we have lots of fun!!!
