Reviews
5 star ratingOnce in a life time incredible experience, Amazing photos, and rear experience that no one will ever even come close ge Just got back from our trip to the jungle last wedensday,
I’m a big fan of these kind of adventures, have been to mount Everest, and a few
third world countries. Somehow convinced my wife to come with me it no the jungle, I think a big part of it was that one of our friends ended up joining us as well.

We did the 9 day deep jungle indigenous tour. When we flew to manaus from Miami on Friday Eduardo was standing there with a sign with our last names, it was midnight, he had a cab ready, dropped us off at the hotel and told us he would be there to meet us in the following day to give us details of the trip and then we would leave 5 am the following day after on Sunday, When our trip would start.

From the first day in the jungle we ended up spending a lot of time on a boat, stopping along the amazon river to explore the jungle, and make camp.

First two days were a bit of a challenge, you realize you are truly in the deep, real jungle,
but somehow you feel safe because of Eduardo and his team. We had 4 locals part of our trip,
Mikaes, Obijilong, and Therasa. From the first night you can see their professionalism in the jungle, the only thing that compares to their ability in the jungle is you walking into a grocery store to buy food,

They’re able to stand up in a small canoe, throw a spear and catch a fish every time…
On our third night, we stopped in the deep deep jungle to camp out, as we were hanging up our hamocks, Eduardo saw a fish on the other side of the canoe, he jumped onto the canue from land, ran to the back and threw a spear into the water, when he pulled it out there was a foot and a half long fish stuck to the end of the spear, we later coked it.

The pictures we ended up taking, of the locals, of the monkeys, parrots, and caymens (small 1 foot crocodiles, were something I did not expect, and something I have not seen anywhere:
on one of our first nights we went fishing in the floating jungle, that’s when the water rises up high between the trees, and it is literally a floating forest.

I got to catch piranhas with a finishing rod we made from tree that same day, and got to eat them.

We visited local villages, played some games with them and gave out candy and toys to the kids, one village had a pet monkey that we got to play with. The villagers, and especially the kids were excited to see us.

Apparently this is the only trip that takes you into the real deep jungle and these people don’t normally see any tourists… Everyone was very nice.

The photos we took and the experience we got I have not gotten anywhere else or heard of before, we literally lived in the deep amazon jungle, not something many can say they did.

Last 2 days we camped out on an island were we actually can swim, about 30 min boat ride from the closest city, that has under 2000 people living there (Maraa), made some bbq, and relaxed for 2 days, then partied with the locals in Maraa which all apparently knew Eduardo since he is the only one bringing tourists there, they were all excited to have us visit.

Highly suggest doing this 9 day trip, bring sunscreen, bring really good mosquito spray (first two days you really need it, afterwards not as much). I had my wife and our female friend join us, the first two nights were a bit of a challenge getting used to here we were, but on the third day we all loved the trip.

Definitely a once in a life time experience, that everyone wanted to hear about once we got back…

Also got a lot of cool souvenirs, blow dart pipes, and photos to remember, that you cant get anywhere else in the world.

5 star ratingStudent of psychology Me and a buddy were the first persons to ever visit Maraá and it is still one of my most memorable and exotic experiences. Spear fishing, living among the natives and just experiencing the real jungle life style was so far from the usual tourist tours provided all over South America. This is a life time experience and the guide, Eduardo, is one of a kind. Eager to show you everything there is to see and giving real insight to a different and unique part of Brazil.

Day 2

We have breakfast in Maraã this morning before we begin our journey at around 10:00. We are going to Paradise Lake, which is a 7 hours boat ride from Maraã. On the way to the lake we will stop to set up camp and fish for our lunch and dinner. The fresh caught fish of the Amazon river is absolutely delicious. That night we will sleep on the riverside of the Amazon river.

Day 3

Breakfast will be served around 07:30 and after that we will continue that last part of the boat ride to the lake. We will arrive at the lake around midday. After arriving to the lake we will set up our hammocks in the lake house where we will sleep. We will go on a small observation around our camp and begin explaining you a little bit about the flora and fauna of the Amazon jungle.

We will stay around camp this evening as we are going spearfishing after the sun has settled. You are in for a real treat here. Spearfishing is a really fun activity where you get to see our awesome guides in action. And off course you are going to spear your own fish tonight. The Amazon river is packed with fish so there is a guarantee you will get to eat good tonight. We will bring our freshly caught fish back to the camp where we will have a lovely feast before settling in for the night. Tonight we sleep in hammocks in the lake house.

Day 4

We will have breakfast at the lake house around 07:00 before preparing to go to Lake Ira. We will stay at this lake the entire day. We are going to catch fish with fishnet, spears, and bow and arrow. We will have prepare lunch with all the delicious fish we catch and then we will continue to explore this beautiful lake the entire day. Hopefully you will be able to see on the magnificent black caiman swimming in the lake.

We will also do some bird spotting before we head back for the lake house to have dinner. After dinner it’s time to relax and watch the beautiful star filled Amazonian night sky before going to bed. We will sleep in our hammocks in the lake house.

Day 5

Breakfast at 07:00 this morning and then we are off to go jungle trekking. During our trekking in the Amazon jungle you will learn about the plants and animals of the rainforest. You will get insight into the medicine plants that have been used by the indigenous for thousands of years.

There is also a really good chance you will get to see animals like spiders, monkeys and other species. Very few tourists come to this place, and as such the natural habitat of the animals is not disturbed. Of course there is never a guarantee that the animals are willing to give you a glimpse of their daily life, but out here in the deep amazon jungle, far from civilization, your chances are great.

After the jungle trekking we will return to the lake house to catch some fresh fish for lunch. Then there is some time to relax before we will go out to fish for Tambaqui. Tambaqui is a fish that is in the same family as the infamous Piranha fish. Tambaqui is a vegetarian fish. There are 17 different types of vegetarian and cannibal Piranha fish in the Amazon.

The Tambaqui fish can grow up to 40 cm and weigh about 45 kilo. We will try to catch this fish with fishing rot before heading back to the lake house for dinner. After dinner you can relax and settle in for the night. We will sleep in the lake house tonight.

Day 6

Breakfast at 07:00 before heading out for the principal Paradise Lake. We are going to stay at this lake for the entire day and we are going to fish for the enormous arapaima gigas fish. This is a preserved lake which means that we are not allowed to take motor boats because it will scare disturb the very precious fish. So we will go by canoes and pedal by hand all day.

The arapaima gigas is the biggest fish of the arapaima family, and it is by far the biggest fish in the Amazon river basin. It can grow up to three meters and weigh more than 200 kilo. You will learn much more about this magnificent animal, about how it lives and hunts, and you will hopefully get to see or catch a real life specimen yourself. In the afternoon we return to the lake house, where we will try to catch some black piranha. After a long day of fishing it is time to have a nice dinner and then relax before going to bed.

Day 7

We will have breakfast at the lake house and then we will return to Maraã. Here we will visit the municipality and learn about the town culture and history. We will see how they make açai and visit the fishmarket. We will spend the day around the town and talk to the locals and hear a little bit about how it is to live in Maraã. Tonight we will sleep in the family house of Eduardo Tenhave, owner of Amazon Deep Jungle Tours.
