Escape to the Amazon

Brazil

There’s nothing quite like the Amazon rainforest—expanding across multiple countries, covering nearly two million square miles, it’s been in existence for roughly 55 million years and continues to thrill and impress travelers to this day. A natural wonder that no words can fully describe, the Amazon is a definitely a destination best experienced first-hand. Drifting down the Amazon, the draw of spotting exotic  animals go hand-in-hand with taking in the jungle’s lush beauty. Catch a glimpse of one of the area’s largest predators, the black caiman (part of the alligator family), sunbathing on the river’s banks or the iconic Scarlet Macaw—with its telltale red, yellow, and blue feathers—soaring through the trees. At every turn there is something to be amazed by with over a thousand species of flora and fauna that thrive in the Amazon. Cutting through the rich biodiversity of the Amazon is the world’s largest river of the same name, spanning over 4,000 miles in length. At the confluence of the Rio Negro and Rio Solimões, the two rivers that meet up to make the Amazon, sits the largest city in the rainforest. Located in the northern part of Brazil, Manaus has its own unique personality with a variety of adventures waiting.

The tastes of Brazil 
Unique to each of its diverse regions, Brazilian cuisine takes varying cues from European, African, and indigenous cultures. In the Amazon, native influences reign supreme in dishes like Maniçoba, a hearty meal made with meats that are salted, dried, and smoked  then mixed with boiled Manioc leaves and served with farina on festive occasions. Another local favorite is escabeche, which is made with freshwater fish that is marinated then fried to perfection.

The sights along the Amazon
Drifting down the Amazon River is no sleepy cruise, but a constant sensorial experience. While sitting on the deck, travelers can listen to the birds and baboons calling out, spot alligators or pink dolphins in the water, or simply breathe in the aroma of flowers in bloom.

The luxuries of the Amazon
The Amazon may be lush and thriving, but few destinations along its river banks offer views and experiences with such grandeur as the Grand Hotel Amazon.

The best time to go
It would not be called a rainforest without some rain, so depending on what guests want to see, any time of the year guarantees rewarding options. While the lowest humidity levels are between June and November, some of the best wildlife spotting happens between December and March.
