Presidente Figueiredo is a certain destination for all tourists who pass
through the region of Manaus. The city is about 110km far from the Amazonian
capital and is reached through a nice and beautiful road, full of "igarapés"
(river branches with palms and characteristic vegetation).
I had the opportunity to visit Presidente Figueiredo several times.
It's known as "The waterfalls land" due to the number of waterfalls
found in the region. A nice option is to stay in a hostel and spend at least
two days visiting the parks, if possible with a vehicle (renting one in
Manaus, for example).
My favorite park is the "Santuário Waterfall". The falls are high and the
view is quite beautiful. "Iracema" and "Suframa" parks are also nice options
and should not be missed. There's also the "Urubuí" park in the
heart of the city which has several restaurants and other options
Below is a collection of pictures from different visits I've made since 2004.
