Manaus Amazonas
Mamirauá is a project of Ecotourism, community-based, famous among insiders in and winning in Brazil and abroad. The hotel is a charming, 10 suites, cozy, but without luxury with lush landscape. The place is a protected area, as required by the National System of Conservation Unit, Brazilian legislation relating to the subject. The Governor of the state of Amazonas created the Mamirauá Sustainable Development Reserve (RSDM) in 1990 as an Ecological Reservation. In 1996, with the completion of the Management Plan, the state government changed its status to that of a Sustainable Development Reserve. The Reserve's objective is the protection of the várzea at the confluence of the Solimőes and Japurá rivers near the town of Tefé.

Várzea is forest flooded every year by rivers rich in sediments and nutrients, and it may remain under water for more than four months each year. The turbid waters transport a huge load of sediments, which are deposited during the floods, making the soils of the várzea productive and fertile compared to those elsewhere in Amazon region. With a total area of 1,124,000 hectares (almost a third of the size of Belgium), up to 80km of forest can be submerged between the courses of these two important Amazonian rivers.
