Imagine a remote city, in the middle of the Amazon jungle, 400 kilometers down river from Manaus and accessible only by boat or airplane….
Imagine that once a year, this town-that-time-forgot becomes the focal point of an incredible regional celebration.
Where visitors from throughout the Amazon and indeed the world come to participate in a remarkable spectacle that defies description….
Then imagine dancing, street celebrations and incredible pageantry in an Amazonian setting, with thousands of bodies swaying to the pulsating rhythms of “Boi Bumba”, the exotic, compelling percussion beat of the jungle. Part samba, part “jungle hip-hop”….
This all happens in Parintins, providing a rare opportunity to live an adventure unlike any you have ever imagined. Experience the excitement of journeying and living on a riverboat, the magic of the jungle and the chance to fully participate in one of the truly great folkloric events in South America.
