Intimate, Action-Packed Cruising in Brazil's Remote Amazon
The Jacaré-Açu combines adventure, ecology and comfort. With special authorization to operate in some of the most remote parts of the Brazilian Amazon and a well-trained and very experienced crew, she is able to undertake thrilling itineraries of up to ten days.
These journeys offer incredible scenery, wonderful wildlife-spotting opportunities, and constant adventure activities for all ages.
The Jacaré-Açu - which means big caiman in Portuguese - has been inspired by the traditional charm of caboclo culture - the European-Indian racial mix that has arisen along the Amazon, and developed a distinct set of customs and practices. So the boat draws on their boat-building tradition, the cuisine is rich in local ingredients and influence, and the itinerary visits and supports Amazon riverside communities.
The eight-cabin boat is rustic and cosy, with room for only 16 passengers, but still boasts all modern amenities. So, all cabins are air-conditioned and with private facilities; and there are three inviting public areas for relaxation and socializing ... and meal times!
And if you wish to include a dose of adventure amongst all the beautiful scenery and wildlife, then the Jacaré-Açu can additionally offer tree climbing, jungle hikes, parasailing, inflatable tubes and piranha fishing. There is even the option to stay overnight in the jungle in hammocks!
