One of the best kept secrets of the Amazon is the Tapajós river. A true gem, this is a destination for those who want to explore areas before mainstream tourism arrives.
Its mosquito-free, clear blue waters and white sandy beaches confounds every stereotype of what a trip to the Amazon can be like.
Infrastructure available for travelers here is still fairly limited and the best option is the charter of small regional boats, ideal for a up to two families travelling together. Arguably the most beautiful of all Amazon ecosystems, in a short cruising distance you can explore the three kinds of waterways of the Amazon: murky water rivers, black water rivers and the magnificent blue water rivers.
