Ambiental Chico Mendes

A short ride out from town, at Km 7.8 on Senador Guiomar, you can find the Ambiental Chico Mendes, an interpretive centre about the history and reality of rubber tapping in the region. Further afield, the state of Acre is dotted with ancient geoglyphs made from earthworks with spirals, circles and crescents that can only really be visited in guided groups.
