From Iquitos to Manaus (Peru / Brazil extension)
Combining a tourist boat Peru side with a cargo ship Brazil side; this highly original itinerary includes two different approaches to river. The first of Iquitos to Leticia emphasizes comfort and security. Fishing for piranhas, night and morning observations of birds and alligators are organized around stops at Yanamono, Pevas, or Paranaquiro Caballo Cocha. After Tabatinga, the Amazon is Brazilian, rhythm and the atmosphere changes by continuing to board a small cargo combining passengers and cargo. The vibrant atmosphere is growing at the edge of short steps to the ports of Sao Paulo de Olivenca, Armature, and Boa Fonte and Tefe. This experience more rustic and authentic continues to Manaus.
