Cruises from Parintins
Parintins is a major river port with a population of 114,000, situated on Tupinambarana Island amid the largest archipelago of the mid-Amazon. It is one of the most isolated medium-sized cities in the world, and is accessible only by air or boat. The community can trace its history back through two centuries and still proudly celebrates its traditional Indian culture. The town is famous for its annual ‘Boi Bumba Festival’, a fantasy derived by the mixture of Indian and European cultures that revolve around a bull, and is a very well-known world class event.
