Pristine stretches of primary forest and simple lodges are better the further from the city you venture, with some truly remote jungle lodges requiring an additional flight to access them. Go beyond Manaus to Tefe or Alta Floresta to explore the dense biodiversity of the vast Amazon basin, and stay at lodges which concentrate on projects with local communities to help preserve traditions and the surrounding rainforest.
Early morning canoe rides are for spotting pink river dolphins as well as a myriad of birds, sloths and monkeys. Night walks or boat rides will take you looking for the insects, reptiles and caiman of the tributary rivers. Visit local communities where the villagers will show you their traditional face painting using the achiote plant.
‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.
Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!
I could go on but I'll spare you.
Thanks a million
