Brazil, has a well developed tourist infra structure with hotels to suite
any traveler's taste. Hotels from 2 to 5 stars are available to fit any
traveler's budget too. Manaus has over 1.5 million in population
and lies along the north bank of the Negro River, 11 miles above its joining
the mighty Amazon. It is located 900 miles inland from the Atlantic coast
in the heart of the Amazon rain forest. As a major inland port (reached
by oceangoing vessels from the Atlantic) it is a collecting and distribution
center for the river areas of the upper Amazon. The first European settlement
on the site was in 1669. A small settlement developed and in 1850 became
the capital of the province of Amazonas. From 1890 to 1920 the rubber boom
brought prosperity to the city, actually to a few rubber barons. During
this period the great Opera House was constructed. The best entertainers
from Europe and North America were brought in for the pleasure of the 100
or so families that then controlled the economy of the area. With the advent
of synthetic rubber in the early 1920's the economic importance of natural
rubber, and consequently that of Manaus declined considerably and never
really bounced back. For the tourist it is a kicking off place for tours
of the Amazon and it has also been declared a duty free zone. It has a
varied selection of hotels, and restaurants.
