Manaus image

Manaus, on the banks of the Rio Negro, flourished during the 19th century rubber boom, when the famous opera house and floating docks were built. Today economic activity has returned as it is a duty-free area for (mainly) the electrical industry. There are colourful markets (particularly for fish) and a boat trip to the meeting of the waters (where the brown Amazon, know here as the Solimões, meets the black waters of the Rio Negro) is popular.
