6. Belém: Full-Day Furos & Igarapé Boat Tour with Lunch
Spend your day cruising along the Guamá and Acará rivers to tour the waterfront of Belém. Explore the natural channels between two rivers or lagoons, called furos, which are typical to northern Brazil. Visit a local riverside community to experience, and learn what life by the river is like. Take in the daily activities of different boats on the river and enjoy the beauty of the diverse Amazonian habitats as you travel down the waterways. Sail around Combú Island, passing through Furo do Benedito and Furo do Paciência. Visit a waterfront village, and learn about how locals interact with the environment, make use of natural resources in their daily lives, and activities such as fishing, hunting, and agriculture. Choose to add your experience with a trip at dawn to Papagaios Island, a habitat for thousands of parrots. Watch the city come to life in the morning, and as the sun begins to rise, gaze in awe at the unique sight of thousands of parrots flying across the sky.
