Probably not. Conventional phones and 3G / 4G network do not work in great part of the forest. But you will see how wonderful it is to stay connected for a few days with nature and the people around you!
Your outward flight must land in Manaus until the night of the first day. The departure flight from Manaus should only take off from the end of the last day (preferably from the next day onwards).
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 Ministry of Health recommends for those visiting the area, vaccination against yellow fever, which should be taken at least ten days before arriving in the Amazon. To find out if you need other vaccines and if you are in good health to participate in this experience, consult your doctor.
The itinerary includes 2 nights of shared accommodation in Manaus in a hotel or hostel and some discovery activities on the day, as described in the itinerary. If your schedule allows, add a few days and other activities around the capital and region 🙂
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 to local customs and to prevent your experience from generating negative impacts on the riverside and indigenous community, you must abstain from all types of intoxicants during the period of living in the Baré community. 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, in a riverside community in the Amazon rainforest. Keep in mind that the community is located in a rural area, which does not have the same infrastructure as cities. The rooms are very simple and can have a bed or just hammocks. The shower does not have heated water (but the Amazonian temperature is usually high). Although it has a generator, which is switched on at certain times of the day and night, the community can run out of power if it has a problem. Conventional cell phones and the 3G / 4G network do not work in much of the forest and Wi-Fi is restricted. Connect only with yourself, with the people around you and with nature!
