Guajara, Brazil Cruise Port

With a population slightly below 50,000, Guajara is a municipality in Rondonia, a northern Brazilian state. The popular state shares borders with Acre to the west, Amazonas to the north, Bolivia to the southwest, and Mato Grosso to the east. Despite rapid deforestation—some of the worst in the Amazon—Rondonia still contains more than 100 thousand square miles of rainforest. Guajara was once the terminus for the historic Madeira-Mamore Railway. Built between 1907 and 1912, the railway linked the cities of Porto Velho and Guajara-Mirim and offered trans-Amazonia access to the Amazon River, and eventually the Atlantic Ocean. The railway acted as a major source of transit for many decades until the early-1970s when the Trans-Amazonian highway was completed, at which point the railway was quickly abandoned. In the early 1990s, the municipality obtained protective status for much of their land, including the Guajara-Mirim National Park, Tracadal Biological Reserve and various other reserves.
