If you are familiar to this Blog you know that we have been writing about different aspects of the Amazon Rainforest, so if you are really interested in this subject just stay tuned!

Reasons that make the Amazon Rainforest one of the most attractive tourist destinations



The Amazon has the largest freshwater reserve in the world. Its rivers have a great volume of water and their extensions are very impressive as well. But there’s so much more to them. The Meeting of Waters, for example, is a breathtaking phenomenon. The waters have different density and temperature which prevents them from mixing. Juma River has its own phenomenon to be observed, as its waters are calm they provoke a water mirror that is a sideshow.

Nice experienced guides


In the company of the local guides you’ll learn a lot about the forest. They will take care of you passing along all the instructions you need for the rides. They will be your eyes and ears to make sure you don’t miss anything! They are responsible to make the whole experience much more intense and complete.


Visiting a riverside community


The contact with a riverside community is very powerful on many people. You’ll have a chance to feel what it’s like to live like them and you’ll learn about their culture, their daily activities and habits.




We have nothing to say, the picture just left us speechless!


Peace and quiet


This balcony, this view, this hammock. All these things just mean one thing: relax! Disconnect from the world! Disconnect from the internet, forget the news and enjoy this moment surrounded by nature.

The route is an incredible ride


Enjoy! Different from other tourist destinations this part isn’t boring at all! To stay at a hotel nestled into the middle of Amazon Rainforest, such as Juma, the transfer to get there is a nice preview of what are the days to come. You can even choose taking a boat or hopping on a seaplane tour.




This ride provides an in depth / up close exploration of the igarapés (Amazonian creeks). You’ll feel like a local exploring and observing all that surrounds you.




Did you think we wouldn’t say a word about the food? You’ll have the chance to taste amazonian fish, mostly the tambaqui, the tastiest of all. And of course, typical fruits like cupuaçu, taperebá and ingá!
