    • arts research/ stay with community near Manaus/ ayahuasca

      Manaus Apr 13, 2016 at 4:45 AM

      Hi everyone. I hope you are well. I am travelling from Ireland to Manaus towards the end of May. I am an artist researching for a new project and I am interested in knowing more about shamanism, ayahuasca and an indian community's way of life including integration of music and dance. I would love to find a community near Manaus with whom I could possibly stay for a week or or a little more, and to take part in an ayahuasca ceremony if possible (I have done this twice before). If anyone can help me I would be extremely grateful! With thanks, Ann


    • Manaus - stay in town or in a "jungle hotel"?

      Manaus Nov 10, 2015 at 6:27 PM

      This will be my first trip to Manaus. The question is should we stay in town and take day trips into the jungle, or stay in a "jungle hotel" and enjoy the wildlife, but have less "town" options?

    • Amazing Tours Agency and Fontur taxi

      Manaus Oct 22, 2015 at 1:21 AM

      I am in Manaus for a short trip (2 days only) and had a coulpe of questions:

      1. There is an interesting tour offered by Amazing Tours Agency (Leonardo Mendes ) - is anyone aware of this tour operator and are they reputable. They are reviewed on Tripadvisor but all the reviews are overwhelmingly positive so I am a bit suspiscous!

      2. I am staying at the Tropical Manaus Ecoresort and booked taxi and pickup through travel company Fontur. I have paid for this on my credit card and in hindsight think I have been ripped off says they charged me BR$260 for pick up and drop off. Have I been ripped off and if so is there any way I can get them to refund the money? What is the best way to get a taxi from the airport and how much should it cost?

      We are a family of 5 (parents with 3 teenagers). We need to get from GRU to Congonhas. Will it be more convenient to take airport taxi or airport bus? In most places we have gone to, the individual cost for the bus is sometimes just the same as for a taxi and the taxi seems to be quicker. Thanks.

    • Where NOT to stay in Manaus?

      Manaus Mar 4, 2014 at 1:54 PM


      I'm looking at hiring an apartment during the world cup in Manaus with a few mates. We have narrowed it down to two places and just wanted to see which area would be better (i.e. not a slum and with good access to bars, etc).

      One is in Cachoeirinha (to the east of CBD), and the other is near Arena Amadeu Teixeira (to northwest of CBD and just to the west of the FIFA stadium). Which of these areas would be better to stay at?

      We want a nice neighbourhood where there are good pubs/bars, close to public transport.

      We don't want to get an apartment that is in the middle of nowhere or in a slum.

      Belém to Peru

      Manaus Feb 3, 2014 at 6:29 PM

      To the experts of Manaus!...

      I'm looking for a little advice on amazonian travel. My girlfriend and I are looking to make our way in from Belém to Manaus, then on again to Peru a few days later.

      Instead of being boring old souls we are interested in something of an amazonian adventure along the river.

      So how about it? Is boat travel from Belém a completely idiotic thing to consider? What are the logistics in terms of time, cost, comfort? We dont mind roughing somewhat, and time (as opposed to money) is something we have plenty of, which is why we think it may be both more fun and moneysaving than flying directly.

      Any advice or any links to companies who provide any such boat services, would be greatly appreciated.

      After Manaus we would be looking to move on to Leticia and Iquitos.

      All the best

      15 hour stop over in Sao Paulo. Is it worth it and is transport available at early AM hours?

      Sao Paulo Jan 8, 2013 at 6:39 AM

      Hi I'm flying through Sao Paulo and have an option of one of 15 two flights. the one is a short stop over which will not give us time to exit the airport.

      The second option is a wait of 15 hours before our connecting flight. This might give us time to book into a hotel and see a little of the city. What worries me is the time of departure of our connecting flight.

      1) Will the afternoon and evening be worth the visit into the city?
      2) If so do we catch a bus or train into the city and if so what connections?
      3) Which area should we book our hotel close to airport or night life in a safe area?
      4)Is there transport from the city to the airport so early in the morning. Our flight leaves at 6:20. what time to we need to arrive at the airport?

      Flight 1: Arrive Sao Paulo at 15:30. Flight leaves at 06:20
      Flight 2: Arrive Sao Paulo at 23:30 Flight leaves at 06:20

      Thank you

      I will arrive in SANTOS in December 2012 by cruise from Europe. I would like to spend two / three weeks in Brasil before returning by flight from RIO DE JANEIRO. In this context I would like to ask for advice: Can you recommend a local travel agency which can deliver the following services:
      German (or English or French) speaking website / agents. Offering tours within Brasil (e.g. to Pantanal, seaside resorts, Iguazu). Taking care of individual transfer from port to airport (e.g. limousine, helicopter). I am looking for security and convenience rather than for “great deals”!
      Thanks for your assistance! Heinz
