• Parintins


Parintins is a large city with a population of over 100,000 people. It is the site of the annual Bois Bumbas festival that takes place from June 12th every year. The festival is said to be second only to Carnival in Rio and is heavily attended by locals and visitors alike. Cruise ships call here and passengers are invited to attend a folkloric presentation of some of the elements of the festival. While the performance is entertaining, there are limited other sights in Parintins.
