Rio Branco is the oldest urban settlement in Acre which has evolved since the late 19th century from a small village on the right bank of the Acre river to the capital of Acre state (since 1962). Today (2014) the city has a population of almost 360,000 people.

The still largest city in Acre state lies in a tropical monsoon climate zone with a wet season from October to May. The annual average temperatures are around 25° C.

For more than a century Rio Branco's main economic viability was based on the trade and further processing of rubber (caoutchouc). By the way, all rubber trees (Hevea brasiliensis) are originally descendants from the Amazon Rainforest.
