It’s a busy, vibrant jungle metropolis and the northern Amazon Basin’s main port city. Mud huts merge with magnificent tiled mansions; tiny dugout canoes ply the water alongside colossal cruise ships. A lovely colonial plaza is at the heart of the city and the further out you travel, the closer you arrive into the jungle and understand the life here.
Afterwards; collection from your hotel and then travelling by river boat along the Amazon you’ll uncover many indigenous communities and tribes. The Amazon is a huge trunk river supply route, you’ll pass many cargo & river cruise boats as you make your way down the river.
