Setting sail from Manaus

Situated near the confluence of the Rio Negro and Amazon rivers, and surrounded by thick jungle, Manaus is a remarkable place, a sweltering, steamy city in the heart of the Brazilian rainforest. It first came to prominence as the centre of the rubber trade around the turn of the twentieth century, but these days it's a major port, despite its location some 1,000 miles from the sea, and it's also the centre of the Amazonian tourism industry. It's an interesting place and there are a few sights worth seeing before you venture into the jungle, including the famous Teatro Amazonas, a beautiful 19th century opera house.

Don't miss

The meeting of the waters of the Rio Negro and Rio Solimões is really something: different colours, different speeds and different temperature too.

Arriving in Bridgetown

The tiny eastern Caribbean island of Barbados has long been a favourite for British holiday makers, thanks in no small part to the platinum sands and warm, crystal clear waters of the west coast. But there's more to Barbados than just beaches; the delightful colonial architecture of the old garrison in Bridgetown, the capital, is fully deserving of its UNESCO World Heritage status, and the island interior is littered with old sugar plantations and natural wonders such as Harrison's Cave. Perhaps the island's biggest asset, however, is the Bajans themselves, who are some of the friendliest people you're ever likely to meet.

Our tip

Check out the open house programme during your visit – you might get to see something normally closed to the public.
