Estado do Amazonas Tourist Traps: 2 reviews and 0 photos

We never once came across anyone who didnt want money or beer. When we thought we had found someone friendly, they then tried to demand some sort of payment.

We were even held up by a guy we bought a beer for early, who chased a couple of peddlers away from our table.

We chased him off however, but it could have been so much worse.

Unique Suggestions: Anyone at all that comes over to you that does not appear to be a tourist, send them away, just put your hand up and say no.

Once you have agreed to talk with them, you will never get away from them.

Fun Alternatives: Whether it was just us who had the bad luck, or what, I have no idea, but I find it hard to imagine that anyone else had it any other way.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
