Take a guided tour! It is the ideal place to feel completely inside the forest. Go prepared for long walks. Also have money slips because in the place there is not easy access to internet and no payments with credit card.

We were led by a couple of local guides. Very knowledgeable about their forest and the plants interacting with the critters. Not a difficult trek for the average person. They followed a track that did not seem well worn but definitely familiar to them. We learned a little about survival in the forest, what to drink, eat and avoid. Definitely... More

We spent an hour and a half walking through the Tapajos National Forest with a guide. It poured down rain, but we were fine with that because it was the rainiy season in the jungle. You expect it may rain. This was exactly what you would expect the rain forest to look like. The trees were massive. One had fallen... More

We visited the forest with Kirin and a local guide. Both were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, telling us about the different trees and their uses. We followed a path, but it needed to be cleared as the plants grow so quickly here. It was the middle of the day so we didn't see many animals, but could hear many birds.

We visited the forest in the rain which meant we really didn't get to experience the full extent of the walks available. There were very few birds in evidence no animals, but the forest was rich in flora and with w guide to explain it all it was a pleasant short excursion from our cruise ship.

A fantastic experience and one we will not forget. Our guide Gil is a man with huge energy and enthusiasm. From the moment he picked us up at the airport to stay at his lovely home in Alter do Chao with great views of the river and beach, he made us feel very welcome and had an endless stream of... More

We arrived via cruise ship off the coast of Alter do Chao and after a longish tender boat ride, walked onto the beautiful white sandy beach and directly into Alex, clad in one of Gil Serique's t-shirts, and received a warm welcome and directions to continue up the beach. Gil was waiting anxiously for us as he is always bursting... More

Great tour. A good 60 minute drive from the river port of Santarem. Once you enter into the National forest you will be surprised with the different species of animals, tress,rodents etc. What an education with the proper guide. Well worth the time and effort to get there. Our guide was a very proud and educated person that was a... More
