Fodor's Expert Review Lago Verde

Alter do Chão Beach–Sight
A local favorite for escaping the crowds during high season, Lago Verde can be accessed by a short boat ride from Alter do Chao. There are secluded sandbanks that separate this lake from Rio Tabajós. Due to the sediment, the water takes on a translucent green color at times. When the waters are high, the surrounding forest is all but submerged, with the treetops forming a fantastical landscape that earned it the name of "floresta encantanda" (enchanted forest). Plan a day trip through a tour agency or speak to one of the boatmen at the main pier below the square.
