Rondônia and Acre in Brazil

The state of Rondônia is largely populated by migrants from other parts of Brazil. Foreigners are welcomed without question or curiosity and there is no regional accent. A local academic described the state as 'a land where nobody has a name and everyone can have a dream'. Most visitors tend to arrive via the BR-364 from Cuiabá or the Rio Madeira from Manaus.

The intriguing state of Acre, rich in natural beauty, history and the seringueiro culture, is still very much off the beaten track. The area is beginning to develop its considerable potential for adventure, as links are opening up with neighbouring Peru and Bolivia.
