Hello dear travelers,
The guide books don't offer much help on where to stay if you want to be conveniently located to the boat that takes you to the Amazon lodges. Are these boat transfers all over the city or do they depart from one place?
We arrive in Manaus early afternoon and plan to stay the night before heading to Amazon Eco Lodge the next morning. It would be nice to do some sightseeing during the day and have good Brazilian food at night (i.e. not McDonalds or the Mall food court). We are a couple looking for a clean, comfortable, conveniently located hotel in a safe area for around $100 - $120 a night. Not sure which neighborhood we should be looking at. Any advice is appreciated, thank you!!
