I Intend to go by boat to Manaus. Hopefully I could go on to Peru. How do I get there, if I´m tired of going by boat ?

There is a road you could take from Manaus to Humaita, Porto Velho and Abuna, and then cross into Boliva (Riberalta) and travel to Rurrenabaque, La Paz and into Peru. I met one person ever to have done this, and it took him 3,5 weeks in the dry season... I suppose it's very adventurous, though.

The line boat Manaus to Tabatinga : 5 days and will cost 180.00 R$ (1 US$ = 2.10 R$)Well, the speed boat will leave you from Tabatinga to Iquitos in 12 hours .

but note! You will sleep in Hammock but the comfort and safety is good and all food is included. You never will forget this journey. Cheaper and better than plane. In Manaus the weather is good, Rain season stop, but don't forget repellent
In Manaus you can contact the Meeting Point to find cheap Hostels, Guides, Trips and there you can buy your ticket to Peru.

If you tired of travelling by boat, you can fly form Manaus to Tefe or Tabatinga and then go by boat to Iquitos and fly again to other places in Peru.

Or go by boat to Tabatinga and the take a water plane to Iquitos.

the tricky part will be Manaus to Porto Velho unless you love building bridges....
From Porto velho you can go as written before in this thread, to Bolivia or direct to Peru via Assis Brasil and on to Puerto Maldonado. No public transport on this last one but the same goes for manaus to PV....
