Should I travel alone or with a group?
In addition to being more fun, traveling in a group is much safer than traveling alone, as the risk of assaults or accidents is much lower. Several problems can arise during a trip, and they are more easily solved when you are in the company of friends or family. But best of all is to be able to share the experiences and knowledge gained with someone, be they right or wrong. Having a partner at these times gives you much greater security. Showing a photo or telling a fact does not make people aware of the time.
“Do I stay in a jungle hotel or a cruise?”
Both jungle hotels and boat cruises are good options for those who want to explore the jungle with comfort and without extreme emotions. Both offer almost the same rides included in the package. Therefore, when choosing between one and the other, you have to take into consideration the type of experience you want to have.
In a jungle hotel, you are in contact with nature all the time, it also interacts more with the local community and knows the region you are staying in better. On the other hand, on the ship, you have the advantage of going a much greater distance and sleeping in different places. The landscape always changes, and the experience of navigating the rivers is unique.
But what do I do in the jungle?
Jungle hotels and cruises have a daily activity schedule. The principal means of lodging in the Amazon usually includes focusing (alligator watching), walking through the woods, visiting an indigenous community, piranha fishing, going to the water and walking to see the pink dolphin. At night, when there is no night stroll, we have a little rest, but we are so tired from the excursions and waking up early that we slept early as well.
“Will I be devoured by the bugs?”
With kills on all sides, far from civilization, being attacked by mosquitoes and rubber trees is a fact, right? Not exactly. The Rio Negro, in Brazil, has a high degree of acidity where most of the jungle hotels are located, and, because of this, insects do not proliferate.
Hotels and ships also have mosquito netting in the window. Just repellent. In the jungle raids, there are more insects. To get rid of bites, in addition to the repellent, wear long pants and long-sleeved T-shirts.
– What’s the best time to go?
The jungle is usually divided into two seasons. In the rainy season, where boats can travel longer routes, the trips are easier, and you can go canoeing through the flooded forest. However, the drought period is ideal to enjoy the river beaches, which disappear when the river is full. Since it’s hot and rainy all year round, it’s hard to say which is the best time to go. You can enjoy it every month.
– How long to stay?
Four or five days in a jungle hotel or a cruise is enough time to enjoy the place without the tours becoming repetitive, according to travelers and travel agents.

Many tourists believe that they will see all those animals shown in the documentaries and end up being disappointed. During the raids in the forest, you can see birds, some monkeys, alligators, porpoises and some laziness. But terrestrial mammals, such as tapir, paca, jaguar and ounce, are hardly observed.
