Proposal
 
 
 
Imagine a city, in the middle of the jungle, 400 km from Manaus and only accessible by boat or airplane. It hosts once a year an outrageous spectacle - and has a very rustic infra structure! The solution is simple: a boat trip. You will be sleeping on a comfortable boat and live this Jewel of Folklore intensly.

The Boi-Bumba festival brings the city of Parintins to life. 35,000 people arrive by boat and 2000 by plane to join the two colourful troupes of characters (O Garantido and O Caprichoso) that tell the history of the Amazon folklore. This atmospheric festival takes place in the 'Bumbodromo' and there you can see fantastic Folklore Spectacle created by Indians in the middle of the jungle!! It is a life time privilege to assist this Opera of the Jungle with its costumes, beautifully dressed flag bearers and decorated floats, all moving to the different Indian rhythms.
