Leadership in destinations within the Amazon Basin has its rewards. With over 50 programs throughout Brasil, many of them in the Amazon Rainforest and surrounding regions such as the Pantanal, we cover most remote areas in South America’s largest country. Amazon Adventures has been bringing guests to Brazil’s most distant and isolated corners for over 25 years. We pride ourselves of being recommended by some of the most important travel media outlets as International Travel News, National Geographic Adventures, Brandt Guides, Fodors, USA Today and Frommers, among others.
In September we had the opportunity to visit Southern Patagonia as a hosted buyer in ATTAs (www.adventuretravel.biz) AdventureNext event in Magallanes to Reconnect, Reactivate and Regenerate. This was our first trip to the region in 3 years for obvious reasons and this time was special because the Reconnect part was with some of our best, decades old friends and industry partners in the region. In Torres del Paine, Rio Serrano hosted the event, Hotel Lago Grey hosted a magnificent gourmet evening event and Hotel las Torres displayed their famous Bar Pionero Mixologist in a Sustainable Bar Tending lecture and hands on class.
I recently visited Caño Cristales, along with some other sites near the town of La Macarena, on a trip with some other agents that was sponsored by Procolombia.
Of course everyone wanted to see Caño Cristales because it is a wonder of nature, famous for a unique aquatic plant which lives in this river that spans 100kms, and changes its color into red only once a year between July and November. But the purpose of the trip was also to highlight some of the other newly-developed attractions in the area that can be visited all year round.
