A visit to this 9000-acre park is an Amazon-like experience, with dry and flooded forests and lowlands, and numerous examples of giant water lilies measuring as much as seven feet in diameter.

Ok to visit but not a must see. They will,push this but it is a tourist trap more than an actual ecological park.

The piraracú (arapaima in English) is the largest fresh water scaled fish in the world and just maybe the best tasting... More

Do not miss, this is close contact with nature! Great opportunity to see and interact with some wild animals, they are well treated and we were in a small group. The lake woth the walk, and the monkeys around make it a lot of fun, specially if someone brings a banana alongside to feed them!

An ecological park sounded promising but all the tour boats stop there and everyone is crowded into small spaces and given an "opportunity" to handle wildlife which is not good for the animals. Not a good experience at all.

Janauary Ecological Park is about one hour by boat from Manaus on the Rio Negro. The park gives you a taste of the flora and fauna of the Amazon. We saw giant lily pads, acai trees, monkeys, a crocodile, pink dolphins, and a variety of birds. We enjoyed a boat ride through the flooded forest. This day visit in no... More

Fantastic! Couldn't see much of vitória régia, but alligators, sucuris, preguiças and micos-de-cheiro are common there. Indigenous people catch and domesticate some of them. It's interesting and astonishing to see their intimate relation with those animals.

Lovely area, like being in an impressionist painting. My husband and I went to "Meeting of the Waters" as one of our tours with the Eco-Lodge, where my husband and I were staying. After the river tour, we had lunch at a floating restaurant. We were there during the rainy season in March, so the lake was in flood. Because... More
