I will be arriving in Manaus by river and am planning to leave by the road that goes north to Venezuela which I hear has recently been paved. Has anyone travelled this road who could offer some information about it - are there busses? How much does it cost and how long does it take? What's the border crossing like?
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Hey Kat I travelled with people (Brazillians) by boat to Manaus that were expecting to travel onwards and upwards, there are busses and I'm pretty sure they are average price for Brazil somewhere between 150 and 300 reais I think although maybe more depending on what company and what quality!
The bus station in Manaus is pretty skanky though so take the usual precautions eh?
hope that helps a little bit
BTW, I think you would expect to go to Boa Vista and onwards>?
