        The Brazilian Amazon is the largest area of the Amazon Rainforest – with almost 60% of the entire Rainforest in Brazil. You can access this part of the Amazon by travelling to Manaus, a city that is located in the middle of the Amazon and is easy to get to by plane, air or boat, by taking a river cruise.   A Brazil Amazon River Cruise has been on the bucket list for a long while. Book an Amazon Cruise with Nature Tours on the Tucano.

      These journeys offer incredible scenery, wonderful wildlife-spotting opportunities, and constant adventure activities for all ages. 60% of the Amazon Rainforest is to be found within the borders of Brazil, making it an ideal destination for an Amazon River cruise. The Rio Negro (Portuguese: Rio Negro [ˈʁi.u neɡɾu]; Spanish: Río Negro [ˈri.o ˈneɣɾo] "Black River") or Guainía as it is known in its upper part, is the largest left tributary of the Amazon River, the largest blackwater river in the world (accounting for about 14% of the water in the Amazon basin), and one of the world's ten largest rivers by average discharge⁃ location: Guainía Department, Amazon region, .

      The Amazon basin is a marvel of the world and the imagination, an ecosystem of unrivaled size and diversity, and a place of near mythical status among travelers. The Amazon River has more water than the next eight largest rivers combined, and is twice the area of India, and the basin spans eight countries. The Amazon River (also named Rio Amazonas in Portuguese and Spanish) is the largest river in the world by the amount or volume of water it flows through the tropical forests of South America, mainly in Brazil. Its headwaters are in the Andes Mountains in Peru, on the western edge of South America and flows eastward into the Atlantic Ocean near the equator.
