When it comes to getting the best bang for your buck from your holidays, it's worth remembering that Borba is just the beginning; Amazonas features an abundance of scenic wonders.
For a window into the local culture, go straight to Amazonas 's history museums.
There are times when the most enjoyable way to understand a place is by hiring local guides. The region offers a number of guided nature walks and wildlife spotting tours. Relax upon the region's waters by going boating or snorkeling.
Learning the local language is an excellent tool to use to break down cultural barriers, so why not equip yourself with some everyday Portuguese phrases before your trip. Knowing how to use a few easy words and phrases like "Você é bem-vindo", which translates to "You're welcome", could make your vacation all the more pleasant. And, for "Would you like to dance with me?", you can say "Queres dançar comigo? " Don't be shy, just give it a try!
Take note, if you are likely to be in Amazonas around the 7th of September, Independence Day will be celebrated at that time and banks, business and some attractions may have different opening hours to normal.
Good things must come to an end, but be rest assured, when it's time to leave Amazonas, you'll be leaving with many wonderful memories to remember your journey.
