From the outset the arrangements for travelling to the boat were excellent - everything was well organised and we received a great welcome on arrival on the Manatee. Each day provided an adventure of a different type experiencing the rainforest, wildlife and meeting some of the local people who live on the river. Our guides were very impressive, knowledgeable and highly informative. Life aboard the Manatee was comfortable in our cabin with a good powerful shower and airconditioning. Delicious food was served every day to complete the experience.
A trip on the Manatee cannot be recommended too highly.
