Manacapuru is in Amazonas, ever more accessible by the new bridge from Manaus.

Understand[edit]

This small riverside city promises to grow as an alternative harbour for all boat traffic upriver Solimoes, i.e. towards Colombia and Peru, as it saves you a few hours compared with Manaus. Also, it is still a genuine "jungle town", compared to the cityscape of the state capital

Buses from Manaus every hour. 15 reais, 2 hours. Shared taxis at 20 reais take you to the city limit, and can take you further into the city for an additional fee.

Get around[edit]

All walkable. Mototaxis at 2,50 reais within the city. Taxis charge up to 10 reais.
