Hi !

Does anyone know how to go from Iquitos to manaus by river (Rio Solimões) ?
How long does it take ? Is it worthy ? $$ ?

Cheers !

is it worth it??

You get bitten shitless i can imagine, i wouldnt even want to do it myself after 4 days in the jungle starting out our trip on bus from Iquitos, i reckon it would be pure hell getting bitten!!

I'm pretty sure it's possible and not too expensive, I looked at doing this trip but the other way round, I ended up doing only Belem-Manaus.
The thing is that it's a rather monotonous journey after a few days although there are definite highlights!

you can get on boats literally next day it's not difficult but I'd guess up to the border it might be a little more tricky, and its also tricky to get ready info on this sort of thing cos I hate to sy it but they can be a little disorganised at the docks

hope that helps a bit?!
