Off the beaten path destination that is a great base to explore the Lower Amazon Basin and the rivers and islands near Belem
End of amazonas shiping, friendly city, nice market but only at daytime locals said. start to ilha de marajo
A lovely city center with a great marked. Beautiful situated at the end of Amazonas.
To be perfectly honest, I find the Amazon quite boring as a tourist destination, and I've been going for work for years. It's dense jungle, so you can't exactly hike or walk around. The best thing you can do is a lovely boat ride. But if you come to Belem, there are some historic sites. And the most amazing open air market, with all the amazing products from the forest. A spectacular feast for the senses.
