Solo Travel Pricing Tracker-Amazon Adventure: This was one of my favorite trips of all time. If you want best pricing, take a look at the rainy season. When I was there at that time, it only rained a few times. Down pours could be intense. The good news? They were very short , and the sun came back out fast.
It is one of the most eco-diverse environments in tne world. It is a great way to mix an eco-tour with an adventure. I recommend you do what I did: Fly in to Manaus, the capital of Amazonas. Spend the night and join a tour into the “jungle”. Click this link for bargain rates starting from $66 in a modern high rise.
As a solo traveler, safety is always something to consider. The Amazon does have lots of wildlife. However, as yuou will find, they are very shy and hard to find in the wild. As a result, seeing a jaguar is rare. However, Manaus is a city of 1 million so it is important to exercise caution. In addition, the nearby border with Colombia adds additional issues with the unfortunate world wide drug trade. I went as a solo woman traveler and had no problems. However, I stayed in a modern hotel that had adequate security. When I went out, I took a cab that worked out of my hotel. It was costly, but I felt more secure. Lastly, I joined a great cruise Upriver on the Amazon. See this new deal below.
