Tumbira Experience 

a dive in the amazon

Tumbira is a riverside community of the Amazon, located on the right bank of the Rio Negro, located 64 km from Manaus. It belongs to the Rio Negro Sustainable Development Reserve, a conservation unit, along with 18 other riverside communities.

Its foundation dates from 1986 and the origin of its population derives from a migratory process of several families from the Northeast of Brazil or other regions of the Amazon and some from the Rio Negro itself. The incentives for migration were extractive production during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

The community is surrounded by Amazonian natural beauty, talents and community protagonists, and warm and welcoming hosts.

This experience is also available for solo or private group travel, just send us a message and we will share more details with you. *
