    go to Santarem on the ferry from Macapa across from Belem. You fly into it from Frans Guyana. The town is small and not so touristy as Manaus where I have not been. Fantastic market open around 4 am and you see the fishermen arrive and sell their goods. inexpensive hotels. There is a fresh water lake alter do chao I think it is called behind the town and I even went on the trans amazonica bus from there to Maraba. the whole journey 3 days and 2 nights and it cost me nothing as I was over 65. I just ate crackers and drank water and ate some fruit. The bus pulls up in a town and there is a dinner served in some ones house, but I did not want to get runs so i did not eat there. You saw huge trucks with lumber on them, but I had no camera to record it. . there is also a meeting of the water where the clear tapajos meets the amazon by santarem.Marco zero do equador is in Macapa.Latitude 0 00 00 longitude 51 05 15

    Tour company didn’t turn up, we only found out after we called them to find out where they were - they had cancelled the trip. We ended up booking a private trip with Louraturisto and that was great but we’d already wasted half our day.

    Muito interessante, apenas achei arriscada a caminhada sobre a mata nativa, pois a passarela necessita manutenção. Também não ficou claro que podíamos nadar com os botos. Não fomos preparados para isso. Perdemos a oportunidade. Houve um certo grau de insegurança nas informações anteriores ao passeio, deveria ser corrigido pela operadora.

    I have been to over 60 countries and this was the worst organized outing I have ever had. I booked a trip for 11:30. They sent me an email telling me to meet at 8:15. I waited until 9:00 and no one came. My hotel clerk managed to find a phone number for them and they said they would pick me up at 11:30. No one showed up again. My hotel clerk called again. They said noon. They did pick me up at noon, but then we waited an hour and a half at the port. The trip itself was just OK. I wouldn’t give it more than three stars even if I had not spent more time waiting for the tour than the tour itself lasted. Don’t use “Gray Line” or Amazon Explorers. All very disorganized

    O cruzeiro pelos rios Negro e Solimões são imperdíveis, eles oferecem opções de percorrer um ou outro, mas o ideal é fazer os dois trechos. O rio negro tem mais verde o Solimões mais fauna, mas ambos interessantíssimos, o navio oferece passeios diários em lanchas rápidas (mais de 1 ao dia) com guias muito atenciosos oriundos da região com profundo conhecimento. A tripulação é extremamente atenciosa e o navio (que já precisa de uma reforma) oferece um salão com shows no começo da noite após o jantar, nada hollywoodiano, dura menos de uma hora. o Restaurante tem serviço de buffer e grande variedade de pratos, entradas quentes, peixes deliciosamente preparados, saladas, frutas, doces e sorvetes com sabores tradicionais e da região (recomendadíssimos). Os quartos tem ar condicionado e bom tamanho, todos com varanda, os andares mais altos obviamente tem vista melhor. No deck superior temos a piscina e uma área coberta com mesas suficientes paras os hospedes e um buffe com lanches, grilo, sorvete caso você não queira descer para almoçar, o bar da piscina oferece de tudo, sucos da região, cervejas, drinks, refrigerantes e tudo mais. Os atendentes memorizam suas preferências e servem nas mesas ou piscina. Vale ressaltar o cuidado com o meio ambiente, o navio oferece uma garrafa de água reutilizável (que vc leva embora) e vários pontos de abastecimento pelo navio, evitando o uso de garrafas plásticas descartáveis. Você pode conhecer a ponte de comando e a sala de máquinas. A loja de souvenires tem preços compatíveis com os encontrados na cidade. O navio foi feito em Manaus. Dos passeios oferecidos, destaco a pesca de piranhas, "caça"aos jacarés noturna e a visita á aldeia indígena Kambeba, Vale ressaltar o esforço do governo e empresas privadas para levar estudo para esses povos, com serviço de barcos que pegam os moradores ribeirinhos e os levam até a escola, os que moram longe podem dormir em alojamentos durante a semana retornando na sexta á tarde para casa. Visitamos a escola e é muito legal. Os indígenas são muito amáveis, mantendo as suas tradições, mas de olho na sustentabilidade do seu modo de vida e no futuro. Imperdível.

    Fiz o passeio pelo Rio Solimões (Amazonas) com o Iberostar Grand Amazon. Nossa cabine era espaçosa e com varanda, acredito que todas seguem o mesmo padrão. O navio não é lotado, o que não gera tumulto de passageiros nem apertos. A equipe é um destaque à parte, o atendimento é excelente! Fizemos amizade com alguns garçons, para citar Diego, Fauster, super simpáticos e colocam o cliente em primeiro lugar sempre. O navio conta com muita opção de passeio, fizemos trilha na floresta, conhecer casas de ribeirinhos, encontro das águas, vimos jacarés, botos...é uma riqueza espetacular, triste é que vi muitos estrangeiros e noto que brasileiro as vezes não valoriza. A única coisa que eu mudaria é que pegaria o passeio de 7 dias, fiz o de 4. O cruzeiro conta com sistema all inclusive, achei a comida satisfatória, bastantes opções. Bebidas all inclusive também. Destaque para o guia Fortunato, que é um nativo conhecedor da selva e se mostrou o melhor guia! Não é um cruzeiro chique, mas é lindíssimo, preço justo, enfim, só elogios.

    Trip lasted less than 3 hours, a lot of the time was spent waiting for buses and boats. Boat was comfortable with a mixture of jungle and industrial scenery on the way Lunch was in a riverside floating Restaurant food was ok but nothing amazing. Trip is basically up the river for lunch then return. At the lunch stop there is a short walk into the jungle to see a few monkeys, good streach of the legs after lunch.
