Brazil - The Amazon (Chapter)
This is the Amazon chapter from Lonely Planet’s Brazil guidebook.
The Amazon’s quintessential experiences are often more sublime than superlative: canoeing through a flooded forest, dozing in a hammock on a boat chugging upriver, waking to the otherworldly cry of howler monkeys. Forget your Discovery Channel expectations, and the Amazon cannot fail to impress.
