    Fishing

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Due to the fact that I like a bit of sport fishing, but rarely get the chance these days, I have decided to see what chance I have of doing this in the Amazon.

    Again I have used the internet to try to find what I need, and where to go. And have found what looks to be the perfect location. Its is called Balbina Lake, and it isn’t too far from Manaus, and so will be our first destination priority.

    We just had to catch Peacock Bass and Piranha, we would maybe never get this chance again. And we did catch, more Piranha and bigger than we thought too. And a real bonus was the Peacock Bass.

    Me with a Black Piranha that will be dinner. The flooded lake at Balbina. Jach with a Peacock Bass Jack with a Black Piranha

    eco lodge in the Amazon

    Uakari Lodge in the Mamiraua Sustainable Reserve - the nearest port and airport is Tefe which is halfway between Manaus and the border with Peru and Colombia - will give you a most memorable Amazon experience. Look up Tefe, Brazil in VT for photo and reviews.

    Amazon Trek

    Taking an arranged tour to the Amazon is a great idea and a great adventure -- however, it can be more costly than it needs to be and more touristy than it ought to be. We met Frank during our prepaid tour in the Amazon and found this out. If you have a group -- he's the way to go! He'll rent a boat and take you on a guided adventure through the Amazon. Even if you don't have a group he's a good person to talk with. We had a GREAT time with him.

    Frank - as we go deeper into the Amazon.

    Piranha and Peacock Bass at Balbina.

    by Madasabull Written May 10, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was everything I expected, and much more. We caught Piranha and Peacock Bass, and saw Giant Otters fishing and playing, as well as Pink Dolphins within just yards of our small boat.

    The hotel was amazing, and we were the only guests. It was called Victoria Regina, and I believe was the only hotel in the area. It was run by a man named Cesar, and a truly nice bloke.

    He really looked after the place, and everything was very clean and tidy. It cost us about £6 per night each. Although there is nothing at all to do in Balbina, it was really quite, and relaxing.

    One I caught earlier, but the guide killed it.
