The Amazon Rainforest is one of the most beautiful and sought-after tourist destinations in the world. It has lots to offer a curious traveler. The jungle tour will let you experience the wildlife. You will never forget the cruise along the river. And if you are a beach lover, beautiful beaches are waiting for you in the Amazon Rainforest. Let’s take a look at the must-see attractions of the Amazon Rain forest.

 

  • Jungle Tour

 

The very first thing you need to do is to book a jungle tour. But you have to make sure that you are booking from a certified operator. You have to make sure that there is a guide with you, so that you will miss nothing whether it is macaws, parrots, squirrel monkeys or tamarins.

 

  • Jungle cruises

 

You will be introduced a wide range of cruise options. You will come across both luxury and budget boats. You will cruise through the Amazon River and Rio Negro. And you will be taken to the deep forest. In the quieter parts of the river, you will come across catfish, piranha, giant otters as well as river dolphins.

 

  • Opera in the Amazon

 

If you wish to take a look at the glorious past, then you should visit the Manaus Opera House. They were planning to demolish it one time. But they have restored its gold-domed look. It represents the wealthy past.

 

  • Rubber plantation museum

 

This museum has been restored from a rubber plantation which existed a long time ago. It will give you an insight into the past involving slaves. The kind of life endured by the rubber tappers is displayed here. You will also come across the store managed by the plantation owner (replica of it).

 

  • Meeting of the waters

 

When you visit the Amazons, you must visit the meeting of two great rivers – The Rio Negro and The Amazon River. You might be able to spot fresh water dolphins here if you are lucky enough. You will spot whirlpools, spirals, curlicues here at the meeting spot. While the water of the Rio Negro reminds of your black coffee, the water of the Amazon River will remind you of cream.
