Boca Da Valeria,
Boca Da Valeria, Brazil
Located between Santarém and Manaus, Boca de Valeria is the entrance to the Valeria Channel (boca meaning mouth). The channel leads to Lake Valeria, which marks the border between the States of Amazonas and Pará. While the ship is at anchor, a colourful picture unfolds as canoes with the local population come out to meet the ship, providing additional excitement to your Amazon experience.
There are no facilities to operate any organised excursions. If conditions permit, the ship's tenders may take you to one of the typical Caboclo (river dwellers) villages to get a glimpse of the natives' traditional lifestyle. See monkeys and snakes and also look at a selection of local handicrafts. Recommended dress is lightweight cotton. Sun protection and insect repellent also are essential.
