  • The Jamaraquá community is one of several communities that can be visited in the Flona. By boat from Alter do Chão gives more than 1 hour depending on engine power. Getting there we were greeted by the munduruku Indian Dida who was our guide. Did Brazil made with Piquia track which has 9.1 km in little more than 4 hours, because the back has a very steep descent. On the way there are giant trees like Brazil made with Piquia, the rubber trees and a seringueiro package. In the community they serve lunch to 20 reais per person, but our fish smelled like fuel and couldn't eat. I recommend you take a trail snack and lunch after elsewhere.

  • The walk in the Woods is of at least 4 hours but it's worth it. At that time we had no mosquitoes and the trail is of medium intensity. You pay for a guide which costs R$ 100.00. Mr. Ricci and his son are excellent. Before leaving for the forest set lunch with Miss conceição. Excellent food. After lunch get forces and go to the iguarapé. The most beautiful I've ever seen. Stunning landscape.
