The mouth of the mighty Amazon


The lovely city of Belem is a vast sea port and the gateway to the Amazon which underwent a staggering revamp at the start of the 21st century and now offers much more to the visitor than just being a start or finish point on the route to Manaus.

Its faded historical buildings have been brought to life following restoration and the city is worthy of a couple of days stay to explore its squares and narrow streets. It has an excellent musical scene with many an open-air stage throughout Belem but the city’s main attraction is probably its market, the Ver-o-Peso, where you can see all the weird and wonderful fruit, fish and produce that the Amazon has to offer. If you are in Belem on a holiday to Brazil the main thing you will undoubtedly want to do is board a boat on the Amazon.

We can arrange trips from Belem to Manaus or shorter journeys so you can experience the mighty river so contact us now to make Belem part of your Brazil holiday.
