First-time visitors to Parintins will delight in exploring the commercial, residential and highlights of this colorful riverside city.

You will leave the pier and proceed toward the Garantido Pavilion for an outside view. Your drive will then pass through residential area and head into the center of town.

En route, your guide will point out the many residences with façades painted in blue or red, according to the owner’s preference for each of the two ‘Bulls’ -- Caprichoso or Garantido.

Drive to Bumbodromo, the city’s premier arena, for an outside visit. It’s designed in the shape of a bull’s head and is home to the annual and world-famous Boi-Bumba Festival. Only 35,000 people can attend, so tickets are the community’s most cherished commodity.

Re-board your mini-coach and, after traversing the central commercial area, pause at the new cathedral to see its impressive tower. Drive to the Caprichoso Pavilion and proceed on foot through the assembly point for the famous giant gears, puppets and beautiful costumes used during the annual Boi-Bumba Festival.

Browse at your leisure among these fascinating crafts -- your guide will answer your questions.

Notes:

The Bumbodromo Stadium is used as a local school during the months when the Boi Festival is not scheduled. There is a small museum inside that you may be able to visit when school is in session.
