Manaus is a Brazilian city of about 2.5 million, located on the Rio Negro a few miles before it meets the Rio Solimões to form the Amazon River proper. The two rivers flow side by side for many miles, different in color, mixing in eddies: the "Meeting of the Waters." Legend has it that they never mix.

Sex Scene and Prostitution
Prostitution itself (exchanging sex for money) in Brazil is legal, as there are no laws forbidding adult prostitution, but it is illegal to operate a brothel or to employ prostitutes in any other way.
- People say that Manaus is the easiest place in Brazil to get laid by local girls for free.
- Having sexual paid services in Manaus cost like every big city in Brazil.
Red Light Districts
The area around Av Joaquim Nabuco and R dos Andradas has lots of cheap hotels, this is a low-key red-light district and not particularly safe at night.
Prostitutes and Sex Workers
Prices for Brazilian prostitutes can vary a lot. You can have sex for about 10 reais with a working girl from the ghetto or favela or you can order a high-class escort which can cost you thousands of reais for one night.
- Down near the Praça da Matriz, Manaus's downtown nightlife scene degenerates into the sleazy mix of sailors and prostitutes traditional in a large port. Praça da Matriz itself remains reasonably safe, but it's best to stay off side streets like Rua Visconde de Mauá.
You can find street walkers from these areas in Manaus:
- Rua Lobo D'Alma from Remulos to Praca the Matriz.
- Zona around Palace Hotel.
- West side wing of Iglesia Nossa Senhora the Conceicao.
- North part of the Rodoviaria.
- Street with Low-end and medium bars. For example Big House, Aquarella's Bar and Natureza. (And Mistura Fina).
- Street with Ho- bars. Bar Holanda is located in this street.
- Street from Palace Hotel to Praca Dom Pedro II.
Amateurs / Non-Pros
People say that Manaus is the easiest place in Brazil to get laid by local girls for free. If you speak Portugese, it will be naturally way easier. Here are few places to try your luck. Some information might be outdated because clubs behaviour can change easily in a short priod of time:
- Balneario do Cia (Companhia)
- Nothing special.
- Forró da Cida.
- Ladeira do Forró

- Casa da Mamae (ex Arrastâo, ex Símbola)
- Legiao 300
- Xote de Menina
- You´ll see a lot of really chubby, fat and ugly girls in Manaus. However there is a small percentage (about 10%) of beautiful girls. Some are really breath-taking stunners.
- Very few beautiful girls over 25 years.
- Be very cautious of the girls ages or you might get yourself into serious trouble.
- Go to Manaus for partying and f*ck around. Don´t expect to meet girls for serious relationships.
- The Manaus girls are the worst in Brazil when it comes to arriving late to dates.

CENTRO CLUBS, LOW END - Close to the port, next to the Banco do Brasil there are two side-streets with lots of bars and strip-clubs. Located behind the bus stop (look for the sign "Hotel Central"). Some of these places are for afternoon/evening action.
- On the first street you´ll find 4 strip clubs:
- Natureza: Small place.
- Mistura Fina: Big place. Tabledances.
- Big House: Big place.
- Aquarella´s Bar: Big place. Tabledances.
- On the second street you´ll find ho-bars:
- Bar Anaconda

Note: All of the ho-bars are very sleazy and very lowend. Except for a few of the strippers there are almost no doable women. Go there to have fun, but don´t have any high expectations of meeting sexy girls. About 95% of the girls are not doable. R$ 20-30/30 min, R$ 7-10/room.
You can get laid with sexy girls in Manaus for example in some of the strip club's private rooms.
Erotic Massage Parlors
People doesn't talk too much about these places but taxi drivers have said that they exist. Try to find massage parlor ads in Manaus from local newspapers or ask taxi drivers.
Transsexuals / Shemales
In Manaus, East Zone (Zona Leste de Manaus) is the most well known meeting point between transvestites and their clients. It is very dangerous area, so be extremely cautious.
Gay & Lesbian
Due to its high degree of acceptance and tolerance, gay travel is increasingly popular in Brazil. Brazil is open to LGBT tourists.

Sexual Services for Women
Brazil has always been a very popular tourist destination due to its exotic wildlife, beautiful people, pristine beaches and raucous festivals like Carnival. But it appears that Brazil might be vying for the number one spot for sex tourism as well. Additionally, Brazil is a popular destination for female sex tourism, which generally does not see rates as high as male sex tourism. For female tourists, it should not be hard to find male companionship from a bar or a nightclub. Male escorts can be also found from internet in Brazil and price for sex is cheap.
