    I'm looking forward to some of these fantastic roads and floating down the Amazon:clap

    Will be there hopefully May 2010 if all goes well, I hoping that I will miss some of the rainy season.

    May's not the best time for an Amazon boat trip - that's just about high water for the main stem of the river so the beaches are all underwater... River height varies as much as 30' during the year, sometimes more. I've done a few charter boat trips and 2 kayak trips in the Santarém area, and at least for that region the best time for a boat trip is ~September-October as the beaches are at their best and the weather is pretty dry. Weather stays dry there until about Christmas, but the water gets low and beaches start to get muddy by then. Ditto on what was said earlier here, I think by K7 - the smaller the boat, the better your trip!

    Somewhere I have a photo of my tent pitched on the roof of a ˜40-foot riverboat we chartered for a trip over Easter weekend one year. There were no beaches to pitch the tent on, and the hammock hooks on board were all occupied by the rest of our gang, so we had to camp on top of the boat!

    Here's a nice pic of such a boat on the 'inland sea', taken by a friend of mine - a print hangs on my wall. Really takes me back there and captures the vastness of the place:


    boa viagem!!
