Brazil, Amazon questions.

Jump to last reply

I will be in Brazil in September, I will definitely visit Rio de Janerio, Salvador and Iguacu. I orginally hadn't included the Amazon in my itinerary. I'd like to hear from fodorties who have been to the Amazon, what was it like. I've been to Costa Rica and didn't care for it at all, nor did I like the African safaris I've been on. The only place I've visited where I really enjoyed the wildlife was the Galapagos, probably because it is there in abudance, unlike Costa Rica and the African safaris I've been on - in these places you really need to be patient and hope to see something of interest. I'm not a patient person, and I think that the reason why I didn't enjoy these destinations.

What's the Amazon like, I am debating if I should include it. I doubt I'll be able to travel to Brazil in the near future. I definitely wouldn't consider a boat for accomodation and I'd prefer to stay in a comfortable jungle lodge. I am making a mistake by not visiting the Amazon?
