Comunidade

You will live the daily life of a riverside and indigenous community from the Baré ethnic group, home to about 40 families.

Destino

Você vai se hospedar no coração da Amazônia, dentro de uma Reserva de Desenvolvimento Sustentável. O aeroporto mais próximo é o de Manaus (AM) e de lá até a comunidade só existe um caminho: o rio.

Acolhimento

Você vai dormir na casa de uma família local. Hoje, são 2 quartos para os viajantes, um com cama de casal e outro, de solteiro.

Meals

You will taste regional food prepared by the hosts' skillful hands. Prepare yourself to taste local flavours like cassava cake, fried banana, beiju (made from manioc), and tucumã (a popular regional fruit).

Important information

Diferente da expedição em grupo, não há datas pré-determinadas para a Amazônia Baré. Você pode embarcar em qualquer época, verificada a disponibilidade da comunidade.

Transportation to and from the community, which is not a service operated nor commercialized by Braziliando, can be done in two ways:

  • Traditional boat: The boat costs about R$ 35,00 (Brazilian Real) per passenger and each way. The daytime journey usually lasts from 6 to 8 hours and the night journey approximately 11 hours. If you choose to go to the community and / or return to Manaus by boat, a host will lend you a hammock and accompany you throughout the journey. 
  • Private speedboat: O percurso de lancha costuma levar cerca de 2 a 3 horas. O custo varia, de acordo com o número de passageiros e o tipo da lancha, por exemplo, e deverá ser verificado na época da vivência. Apenas para se ter uma ideia, já foi informado o valor de R$800,00 para uma pessoa e de R$1.200,00 para grupo de até 5 pessoas, por trecho. Contudo, para se assegurar dos valores cobrados, para saber as condições de transporte e para fretar a lancha, é preciso entrar em contato diretamente com os prestadores deste serviço na região. Se quiser, podemos passar alguns contatos. Caso queira a companhia de um anfitrião durante o percurso de lancha, lembre-se de considerá-lo como passageiro no cálculo do valor final, já que esse custo não está incluso no valor do roteiro.

  • Keep in mind that everything is very simple and that the community does not have the structure of cities, which makes this experience so genuine and transformative.
  • Para confirmarmos a reserva, é necessário apresentar certificado de vacinação contra COVID-19.

FAQ

Telefone não. Celulares convencionais e rede 3G/4G não funcionam em grande parte da floresta. É possível acessar a internet em alguns momentos, mas você vai ver como é maravilhoso ficar por alguns dias conectado à natureza e às pessoas ao seu redor! 

Por precaução, recomendamos que o vôo de ida tenha previsão para chegada em Manaus com uma antecedência mínima de um dia do início do roteiro e o voo de saída de Manaus seja pelo menos um dia depois da data prevista para sua chegada em Manaus, após retorno da comunidade.

When your trip is confirmed, we will email you a travel guide with a list of what to bring and other important information. Read the manual very carefully! 

A Secretaria de Estado do Meio Ambiente (SEMA) exige o certificado de vacinação contra a COVID-19. O Ministério da Saúde recomenda, para quem visita a região, a vacinação contra febre amarela, que deve ser tomada pelo menos dez dias antes da entrada no Amazonas. Para saber da necessidade de tomar outras vacinas e se está em boas condições de saúde para participar dessa experiência, consulte seu médico. 

Não. Contudo, iremos compartilhar através do nosso manual de viagem alternativas de hospedagem e de experiências que curtimos bastante na região. se sua agenda permitir, recomendamos que passe alguns dias na cidade 🙂

Only accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. 

As the interaction with animals in tourist activities is often done without proper control, presenting risks to travelers and wildlife, Braziliando does not include animal interaction activities in the itineraries and we do not recommend travelers to do so. Our travelers stay in the heart of the forest and have the opportunity to observe wild animals in their natural habitat. Past travelers have seen Amazon river dolphins (boto) during canoeing, alligators during boat crossings, macaws and parrots returning to their homes at the end of the day and animals of different species during the forest trail. If you would like to know a little more about this issue, we recommend reading this article from National Geographic. 

Of course there are risks such as the possible presence of dangerous animals, currents and weather events. But you will be led by locals who know the area thoroughly and will take the necessary precautions to enjoy your experience safely. 

We recommend hiring a health insurance for the entire period of the itinerary that includes coverage of adventure activities. The insurance must be purchased from companies that are specialized in the field and your policy should be emailed to Braziliando before the itinerary start date.

Out of respect for local customs and to prevent your experience from having negative impacts on communities, you should refrain from all kinds of intoxicants. In our conduct manual you will find guidelines for having a harmonious experience with nature and with community members. 

Accommodation will take place at the home of a local family, located in a riverside community in the Amazon rainforest. Keep in mind that the community is located in a rural area that does not have the same infrastructure as the cities. The guest room is quite simple and has a double bed (with mosquito net) and hammocks. The shower has no heated water (but the Amazonian temperature is usually high). Although it has a generator, which is turned on at certain times of the day and night, the community can run out of power if it has a problem. Conventional phones and 3G / 4G network do not work in much of the forest and wi-fi is restricted. Connect only with yourself, the people around you, and nature!
