Spent a marvelous long weekend in Manaus. The team of Jack really took care of us. From airport transfer to hotel reservation, stadium transfer and the amazing river cruise. They charted a lovely rustic boat for us, the crew was charming and showed us the Amazon wild life. We swam with dolphins, visited an Indigenous tribe, had a nice jungle hike and canoed in creeks. Unfortunately our trip was too short, looking forward to come back.
Manaus Jungle Tours is highly recommended, we booked the promotion 4 days tour, the organization was perfect, good and clean hotel in Manaus and romantic jungle lodge with very good food, we enjoyed the grilled peacock bass. Our guide spoke fluently english and we saw a lot of animals.
We were a group of 4 renting a river boat and did a trip up the Rio Negro. The cabins were spacious and clean. The food was gorgeous we loved the barbecue at the beach. Most we were impressed by the silence up the river near the Anavilhanas Archipelago, hardly nobody is living over there. Marcelo, the guide has a huge knowledge about fauna and wildlife of the Amazon. We spent hours walking through dense forest. The high light was the staying in an indigenous village where nearby Marcelo caught an Anaconda.
Looking for get some impressions from the Amazon I run into Jack on Facebook, he organized a great nature experience into the real Amazon. I was not much fond of lodges and group tour, I was looking for something special. Finally ending up with a local guide called Mario, who spoke few English but was fun, spent a week near his family place somewhere on the Mamori lake. I really loved the fishing in the morning and the canoeing through flooded land. Most days we were camping somewhere and you can´t imagine the sound at sunrise. In spite of the still heavy rain, as he stated rain season is over we had a great time.
Me and my future wife were looking for a perfect honeymoon in the Amazon rain forest. Google recommended Manaus Eco Travel. After some emails we closed a deal with them. We were a little nervous about the accommodations and the mosquitoes, my wife is quite sensitive.
Arriving in Manaus we got 5 star treatment from Jack and his team.
First night we spend in Hostel for Us, a family place in an historic building, Next day we left for the jungle, perfect organization, the lodge is a floating hotel, you can just jump into the river and maybe meet some dolphins.
On our stay we learned a lot about the Amazon rain forest and had the chance to observe monkeys, sloths, a lot of birds, we love the Toucan, and off cause the dolphins. Our guide Marcelo really took care of us. The native family running the lodge serves delicious food, especially the grilled Pirarucu. Not to forget the amazing Alligator spotting at night and the hospitality we received at all.
If you ever have the chance to spend a day in Manaus, their boat tours are a must.
We left the port of Manaus with a 150hp outboard literally flighing over the Negro river with its black water.
After 45 minutes we arrived at a marvelous beach where we met David and his pink river dolphins.
Amazing how those animals are crazy for fish, they jump up nearly 4 feet and be careful not to give them their prey.
Next stop was Tupe beach where we had a marvelous grilled Tucunare (Peacock Bass). After a relaxing swim in the river (like hot tube 80F) we were invited by an Indio of the Dessano tribe to assist their tribal dance.
We really got intoxicated by the sound of drums and flutes.
On the way back we had a great sunset over the Negro river.
Amazing. Fun. Interesting. Just a whole new experience in a beautiful landscape. Mosquitos were really annoying, but very soon you forget to care and get back to being fascinated and relaxed. Our guide Max made it pretty easy to discover and learn a lot in a friendly and funny way. Thanks, mate!
Having decided to set out on an expedition and cover the world in the few years to come, this holiday by Manaus looked very tempting. They have several tours of which this one to Brazil was very appealing. I have used these operators in the past, and have only sweet memories of the trip, and hence jumped at their 3 days offer.
The trip was uneventful, and covers all expenses including meals in the $150 odd dollars. The scenery is splendid and the guide very accommodating and friendly. U cant ask for more! I even spotted pink river dolphins which was the highlight of the trip. Those who know swimming can take a dip with these friendly dolphins too!
