FAQ

No phone. Conventional cell phones and 3G/4G networks do not work in much of the forest. It is possible to access the internet at times, but you will see how wonderful it is to stay for a few days connected to nature and the people around you! 

As a cautious action, we recommend arriving in Manaus at least one day before the date scheduled for you to begin the experience. We also recommend the flight to return to your city of origin (or to your next destination) take off, at least, one day after the day you arrive in Manaus returning from your experience in the community.

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! 

The State Secretariat of Environment (SEMA) requires the vaccination certificate against COVID-19. The Ministry of Health recommends, for those visiting the region, vaccination against yellow fever, which must be taken at least ten days before entering the Amazon. To find out if you need other vaccinations and if you are in good health to participate in this experience, please consult your doctor. 

No. However, we will share through our travel guide alternative accommodation and experiences we have enjoyed a lot in the region. We recommend that you spend a few days in the city if your schedule allows it 🙂

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!
