I am trying to find a few things:
1. Are there fast shuttles between Manaus and Belém, e.g. those that take anywhere from 1-3 days? If they take multiple days they'd need to have cabins. My boyfriend and I will be coming from Iquitos by slow boat (9+ days) and we are meeting my mom in Manaus, so we don't need to take another 4-5 days on boat to get to Belém (but we do want to travel by river). We have searched for such things online but are only finding forum posts about the slow boats or tour operators that don't go to Belém.
2. Are there any tour operators that do 2 or 3 day tours of the Manaus area, especially indigenous tribes? We have been talking to a few but some of them don't have cabins, and my mom won't be able to do the hammock thing.
Any recommendations / thoughts much appreciated.
