    Manaus is an amazing Brazilian city right in the heart of Amazonia, so its location is at the same time its main attraction – a metropolis in the middle of the rain forest. Apart from being a beautiful urban-jungle (pun intended) destination, the city will also be on of the 12 hosts of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

    The city of 2 million people lies right at the confluence of the rivers Negro and Solimoes (the local name of the upper stretches of the Amazon River) and is surrounded by tropical rainforest, so World Championship or no World Championship, it is quite a wonderful place to visit.

    Brazil is a great place if you’re looking for beaches, nature and sports, but no matter how many activities you can choose from, a couple of weeks in Brazil won’t be cheap. Especially if you are planning on spending some time in Rio, you can definitely expect to pay quite a lot, especially when you go out.

    But the good news is that there are lots of great holiday destinations in Brazil that won’t be as hard on your wallet as Rio (plus, there are quite a few places in Rio too that are not overly expensive), and the nightlife in these places is nothing to scoff at. So here are some suggestions for budget nightlife in Brazil.
