TABATINGA, located 1105 km in direct line from Manaus, was in the 18th century a military post founded by Fernando Costa Ataide Teives. The name of the city has indigenous origin. In the Tupi language Tabatinga meas white sand.
 
The access to Tabatinga from Manaus is daily by plane (TRIP and RICO airlines) and twice a week by boat. A fast boat (REGINA) is leaving every Tuesday Manaus to arrive in Tabatinga 36 hours later.

There is in front of the port a new ¨praca turistico¨ with restaurants, bars and live music during weekends.
 
Favourite dancing spots - mainly on weekends - are the SCANDALOS disco and the more popular GAROTINHO dacing hall. The upmarket restaurants are CASA FAZENDA and TRES FRONTEIRAS restaurants.
New small bars, especially for lovers and friends, are now being opening in the indigenous COMARCA district.
