Low budged jungle lodges?
In August I will be traveling through the amazon by boat, and I am planning a stay of about a week near Manaus. The idea is find some lodging in the jungle basically. I have found many accomodations (lungle lodges) on the internet already, but most or all of them are too luxurious, big and expensive for my budget. All I'm looking for is just a place to sleep and eat, and the opportunity to see the jungle.
Could anyone give me some good advice in order to find a cheap and simple place? Any suggestions?
Thanks a lot!
Re: Low budged jungle lodges?
A few years ago I stayed one night at the Wild Cabana Logde (www.wildcabana.com).
I see you are travelling by boat and you can also explore the jungle around Manaus from smaller river boats and just sleeping in hammocks on the deck. I had a great experience with Brazilian Safaris (www.braziliansafaris.com). Sorry, don’t know the prices today.
Travel Tips for Manaus
Cemeteries are for the living, too...
One of my fondest memories of my week in Manaus was our walk through its historical SAO JOAO BATISTA CEMETERY. The heat and sunlight were merciless and sapped a bit of the life out of us (!?) but wear a hat and take a bottle of water and you'll survive. Probably.
the Rainforest will surprise and dazzle you with it's Flora and Fauna. halfday or daytrips into the Rainforest can be booked in Manaus Tree Orchids I have seen in abundance, the finest Flowers one can imagine.
a fortune worth on the open markets.
Mosquitos and Humitity
a strong Backpack with lining or sealed Suitcase would be appropriate, learn some portugues travel lite, wash or let wash in the Hotel laundry...good footwear is essential many articles you will find in Manaus to suit, ask you GP when on Medication and get your shots beforehand. protect your Equipment, high Humidity, Rain and Watersplashes when cruising the Rivers are eninies of any Photoequiment, wrap it in sealed plastic bags Repellent against the Mosquitos, I bought in the local Farmacies, ask and you get what works for those little critters best, be aware of Malaria, Yellow fever, get your shots, look up the interet what is approbriate and check with your GP. a First Aid Kit , Torch, and never be without fresh Water. buy bottled Water where the lid is unbroken. watch your valuables, don't show much you get troubled less
Carnival in the Amazon rainforest - Parintins
Parintins is a two day boat ride away from Manaus. One can also fly from Manaus and reach Parintins in a few hours.
I drifted down the Amazon river on a banana boat for days. The boat was the only mode of transporation for the locals. My broken portuguese and my brazilian friend, Claudiomar, ensured that we hang out with the locals. We talked about Washington DC, where I lived and Bombay, where I grew up. I watched in amazement as caboclo families, dressed in their Sunday best, rowed their little canoes to attend mass at the river-side churches. I danced with the local girls, drank the cachaca and ate the feijoadas.
We were on a trip to Parintins to attend the Boi Bumba festival. Details of the Parintins trip are available on a different web page
The frantic market
A must see in Manaus is the Municipal Market. The frantic activity of the men and women that have fish, meat, fruits, vegetables for sale is fantastic. The odors, the movement, the trucks dumping bananas, the natives dumping and loading fishes.
