Rich in popular cultural expressions, flora and fauna, Rondônia is one of the states where historical influences are best preserved. The state stands out for its cuisine of exotic flavors based on fish and for its spectacular river landscape. The capital is Porto Velho.
The Madeira River offers boat trips to the Santo Antonio rapids, where tourists can see dolphins, including the pink dolphin. The reserve of Cuniã, in the outskirts of the capital, is home to the Cuniã Lake and a picture of Amazonian biodiversity. Folklore festivals and typical cuisine, especially dishes made of peacock bass, a midrange fish native to Amazon rivers, are also very popular.
Tourists in search of more extreme adventures also have options such as rafting and canoeing in the rapids of Machado River, trekking through the Amazon rainforest, diving and rappelling (Source: Embratur).
