Brazil - The Amazon (Chapter)
This is the Amazon chapter from Lonely Planet's Brazil guidebook.
Every traveler has fantasized about a trip to the Amazon. Just the name evokes images of dense rain forest, indigenous tribes, and abundant wildlife. On this river whose size is legendary, it’s actually the little things that make it special. Give it some time, forget your expectations, and the Amazon cannot fail to impress.
