Santarem with 300.ooo inhabitants is located...

...quite between Manaus and Belem, the two largest cities in the Amazon.
It is historically known as the source of rubber tree seeds, taken by Henry Wickham who lived here from 1870 to 1876, when he smuggled 70.000 seeds of rubber tree to England, eventually planted in the British colonies.

Santarem is surrounded by nature and hospitable people. We all love sports as you can see. Jungle Marathon is a big add to the city.
