"You can book a tour on the..." River Trips Tip by AndreasK

River Trips, Manaus: 25 reviews and 39 photos


You can book a tour on the Amazon River. From Manaus to Iquitos in Peru, the river remains navigable by large ocean-going boats, though few travel this way any more. Since the collapse of the rubber market and the emergence of air travel, the river is left to smaller, more locally oriented river-boats. Many travelers do come this way, which can be a pleasant way of moving around – lying in your hammock, reading and relaxing, or drinking at the bar.
