So in my research I have come across three main points in three countries where travellers tend to visit the Amazon:
I know "best" is very subjective, so let me tell you what I see when I see the Amazon. I see the river, surrounded in its entirety by the rainforest, with the banks lined with scatterings of exotic wildlife and a sense of real adventure. This probably doesn't help but anyway.
Currently I am tending towards Rurrenabaque in Bolivia as advised by a girl who had done a very similar trip as I plan to follow and who saw the Amazon from Manaus. It is also the the most convenient for me given my planned route Brazil-Argentina-Bolivia-Peru, in which at no point do I plan to visit the North or Brazil or Peru.
