Discover the native residents, wildlife, flora and fauna of the Amazon during this scenic and memorable cruise along the Guama River.
Depart the pier for the drive to the Guama River. Upon arrival, you will embark your boat for a leisurely cruise through the myriad of channels along the Guama River to view some of Northern Brazil's flora and fauna. You will begin with a visit to Combu Island, locally- acclaimed for its vast cabbage palm tree, or acai plantations. The acai produces hearts of palm, as well as a small black berry commonly used for making ice cream and wine. As your boat circles the island, you will have an opportunity to observe the native Caboclo Indian residents, or ribeirinhos, along with their dwellings that have been built high up on stilts along the riverbanks.
Next, your cruise will continue on to Boa Vista do Acará, where you will disembark the boat for a 45-minute walk through the jungle. As you marvel at the variety of vegetation, your local guide will point out the different species of trees, fruits and seeds and is available to answer any of your questions.
Following your walking tour, you will re-board your boat and cruise back to Belem, where your coach stands ready to transfer you back to the pier.
