2014 World Cup Brazil - Host city Manaus   

Quick facts about Manaus:

Located deep in the Amazon Rain Forest, Manaus is a city of over 1.7 million people. Half of the people that live in the Amazon reside in Manaus and the city is a hub for eco tourists.

Manaus is home to a curious natural phenomenon known as the meeting of the waters. Two rivers, The Negro and Solimoes River meet to form the Amazonas river, but for 6 miles the two distinct bodies of water, The Negro's black water and the muddy water of the Solimoes flow together without mixing. Differing flow rates and water temperatures cause this curiosity, which can be viewed from one of the many boat trips on offer.

Other places of interest include the CIGS Zoo with over 300 species of Amazonian flora and fauna, numerous beaches and waterfalls that can be reached easily by boat, and plenty of public areas on the banks of the river inlets - a great place to take a dip in the clear waters to escape the heat.

Manaus has a tropical rainforest climate with hot, humid conditions all year round. In the Brazilian winter when World Cup games will take place, rainfall drops off somewhat. Temperatures are stable all year round and single figure temperatures have never been recorded here.

Eduardo Gomes International Airport connects Manaus to multiple destinations in Brazil and the Americas. The city of Manaus is around 9 miles from the airport. Improvements in advance of the 2014 World Cup include the construction of a second runway and a refurbishment of the the passenger terminal.

Getting around Manaus depends very much on where you want to go. Most of the beaches and adventure tours can only be reached by boat. A bus service runs in downtown Manaus but road conditions and overcrowding can be a problem.
