Guajará-Mirim (pop. 42.000, 2004) is in the western part of the state of Rondônia in Brazil. It is seperated from Bolivia by the Mamoré River.
It is the southern terminus of former railroad Estrada de Ferro Madeira-Mamoré.
Buses go to Porto Velho, five-seven hours away (333 km. to the north).
Small boats take you on the five minute trip across the river into the Bolivian border town of Guayará-Mirin.
The town is small enough to reach most places by foot.
