It is common to have doubts about what to pack and what to wear on a trip to the Amazon. With that in mind, we have prepared some important information that can help.
The climate in the region where Anavilhanas is located is hot throughout the year, with an average temperature around 25º C. During rains and storms, humidity and wind can generate some discomfort, something easily resolved with the use of a raincoat or a windbreaker jacket. We are at the base of the great Amazon basin, giving the rivers, streams and lakes gigantic dimensions, always inviting for a swim.
Despite being in the heart of the Amazon Forest, consider that your trip will be punctuated by several moments by the pool, with a very pleasant warm tropical climate.
Due to the heat and high humidity, we suggest that guests bring enough light clothing to wear throughout their stay. Anavilhanas offers laundry service to its guests at a charge, if the service is requested.
Insect repellent (for jungle hike only, but if you forget we have to offer)
Personal hygiene items and continuous/ frequent use medications
At least 1 pair of sneakers or closed shoes to go on the jungle hikes
At least 1 comfortable pants for the jungle hikes
Raincoat or Windbreaker Jacket
Swimwear for use in the pool or river
Hat or Cap
Binoculars and Camera
The Ministry of Health recommends that all travelers to the Amazon take the vaccine against Yellow Fever, at least 10 days before boarding. If you have already had the vaccine once, it is not necessary to have the vaccine again.
To confirm a booking, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 92 - 3622-8996
The Ministry of Health recommends that passengers to Manaus take the yellow fever vaccine at least 10 days before departure.
The hotel has free internet in the social areas. As we are literally in the middle of the forest, the signal can fluctuate a lot.
To get to know the Amazon, all seasons are very special. The climate is very hot and humid all year round. From June to November it is a little less rainy and there are white sand beaches all over the archipelago. From December to May, it rains a little more and we can navigate through the igapós - flooded forest, an incredible scenery to visit.
The Hotel is very concerned about the well being of all guests, therefore we discourage photo essays.
We suggest at least 3 nights under our care. If you have more time, the ideal would be 5 nights at Anavilhanas Lodge. This way you will be able to see all our tours and experience the Amazon intensely.
For honeymooners we offer a special treat!
Anavilhanas is recommended for children over 5 years old or those who can swim and are willing to go on walks. The Rio Negro is a delight for a swim before lunch or in the late afternoon. Furthermore, our trails are more fun if everyone agrees to explore them.
The hotel is on the opposite side of the meeting of the waters and so we did not pass through there.
The seaplane is a service offered by a company called Rico Transportes Aéreos. Their contact is email@example.com (92) 3652-1164/ 99146-4570. If you prefer, we can schedule it here.
Our trip is made in a Mercedes Benz Sprinter van for up to 8 passengers and takes 2h30 non-stop. If you would like a private transfer, please check our rates and availability with firstname.lastname@example.org
Anavilhanas does not offer overnight or day use. We have packages starting at 2 nights.
The Cottages can be side by side but are not adjoined rooms. The Bungalows and the Panoramics are separate buildings and in general are a bit more distant from the social areas than the Cottages. If you have 2 small children, we recommend the Panoramic room with 2 extra beds for the kids or 2 Cottages side by side where we can place 3 guests in each room. Cottages and Bungalows can accommodate only 1 additional bed per room.
According to the number of days in the Lodge, a programme with the essentials of the Amazon is designed. Each programme is designed to allow you to experience the Rio Negro, the Igapós, the terra firme and to get to know a little of the local culture. Should you wish to exchange any of the tours that are included in our programming, we can check availability and rates, but we really put together the best itinerary for your trip. Believe us! We have many years of experience focused on providing memorable moments.
Our tours are made in boats and motorized canoes for up to 10 passengers. If you wish private tours, please check our rates and availability with email@example.com
Our tours are suitable for people of all ages who have no walking difficulties. We have thought of different levels of effort, appropriate for each group. We have not yet managed to provide wheelchair access, but we are working on it.
The real indigenous tribes are at least 8 hours from the Lodge, in a restricted reserve area. If you wish to visit an indigenous cultural centre with ritual performances, we recommend that you stay one night at the Hotel Villa Amazônia in Manaus, and they can organise a guide to take you there.
Each package includes 2 walks per day. The tours are designed so that you get to know the essentials of the forest from the smallest package. Get to know our tours.
