The Amazon rainforest encompasses Acre, one of Brazil’s poorest and least populated states. It is also Brazil’s youngest state, only becoming one in 1962. The economy is largely driven by the rubber industry. Acre’s capital is Rio Branco, a remote city that is usually reached by boat. The city grew around the banks of the Acre River and has an interesting mix of colonial and more modern buildings, including a museum dedicated to rubber, the city’s most important product.
