1. Manaus to Santarém: 36-Hour Ferry on the Amazon
Utilize the mode of transportation used most by locals and hop on a boat going down the Amazon. After pickup from your accommodation in Manaus, you’ll head down to the dock for your 36-hour journey to Santarém. Choose between options to stay on a hammock, or upgrade to a private, 2-person cabin with air conditioning and a private bathroom. Gaze out across the mighty Amazon as you float down the river during your voyage. Look out for unique flora and fauna. Once you arrive in Santarém, stay in town, or select transportation to Alter do Chão.
