Visited during a cruise many years ago

I've been on many cruises, but this was far and away the most unique port of call to date. Literally in the middle of nowhere, and an amazing chance to see how the locals live.

Unlike some other reviewers who waxed lyrical about helping the indigenes akin to Rousseau's "noble savage", I found our cruise call here - for the entire day - deeply unsatisfying. Maybe this stop was mandated by the Brazilian Government as the price for allowing cruises up and down the Amazon; maybe it was an altruistic gesture by the cruise line... More

Got there by tender from cruise ship so obviously quite touristy, however possible to walk away from that area and enjoy the natural side. A lot of children hoping for money but will also happily accept pencils books etc. High light for me was just by chance we had a sudden viewing of the Amazon pink river dolphins, amazing. Did...

We wer privieged to be able to meet these native Amazonian people in their own village. We saw the school, the chapel and their homes. Take pens, pencils, paper and school supplies. Add a couple of dollars for photos. You will be made very welcome.

Our brochure said there were 75 inhabitants however about 150 showed up, apparently some coming from the outlying jungles. You will able to clearly see the village from your cruise ship. The only way into the village is by your... More

This tiny settlement at the mouth of the Valeria River was a stop during an Amazon River cruise. The ship's tenders pulled up to a small dock at the base of a church and small schoolhouse. The interesting part of the village is out of sight but easy to find. There are children everywhere wanting to grab your hand and... More
