Day 1: We will begin our trip from Tena, Ecuador by departing for the Waysa Yaku de Alukus cabins. Upon arrival, we will get to know the area surrounding the cabins and have the opportunity to practice our shooting skills with a blowpipe before enjoying a dip in the Waysa Yaku natural lagoon. In the evening we will learn about the local community’s history, legends and tales. Day 2: Start the day with an exciting traditional Waysa ceremony (to energize you and scare away the snakes and evil spirits), followed by a walk through the Parque Llanganates jungle and a visit to the Alukus Waterfall. After having lunch at the lodge, we will visit a natural butterfly sanctuary on the beach in the afternoon and learn a few traditional methods of panning for gold. Day 3: Our day will begin with breakfast and a visit to a family garden to harvest cassava plants. Participate in a demonstration on how to make “la chicha”, a traditional drink of the Quechua population (a serious Quechua language lesson)! After a delicious local lunch, learn and perfect your newfound handicraft skills through a demonstration of local crafts with seeds from the region. Day 4: The adventure continues! Discover how local villagers have learned to survive the vast and often dangerous jungle by means of constructing traditional traps that were once used to use to capture both animals and enemies. We will also learn how to use an indigenous flute-like weapon that shoots out darts called a “cerbatana.” Say “farewell” to the community and return to Tena.

AMAZON MA JUNGLE ADVNAUS ENTURE 3, 4 or 5 Days DAY 1 Hostel pick-up and departure from Manaus port by speed boat to cross the Rio Negro to the village of Cacau Pirera. From here you will travel by car to the village of Paricatuba where you will hop in a motorized canoe to reach the jungle hostel around noon. Here we will get settled in and have lunch. Begin your adventure by taking a canoe trip with your local bilingual guide on a creek to go fishing for piranhas by day. At nighttime search for alligators and noctural animals on an moonlight expedition.

DAY 2 Enjoy an early morning breakfast, followed by a 2.5-hour educational jungle walk where you will learn about medicinal plants and the trees of the Amazon rainforest from your knowledgeable local guide. Here we will find different plant life, bigger trees and a dense forest due to the higher altitude. After lunch at the lodge, we will take a paddle canoe trip through small channels called “Igarapes” or swamp lands called “Igapos” depending on the season.

DAY 3 Take an early sunrise tour to hike through the jungle as dawn breaks and the jungle animals rise for the day. Visit the home of a native “Caboclo” family who proudly preserve and maintain their traditional way of life and are eager to share it with you. Learn about their local farming techniques from your guide as you explore a new lifestyle. Lunch at the lodge is followed by a camping expedition into the jungle where you will sleep at a local family home in the comfort of a hammock.

DAY 4 Live as the native people have for thousands of years by learning to extract everything needed for survival from the rainforest without destroying it. Watch for native animals and listen to the chorus of tropical birds during the day. At night sleep to the sounds of howler monkeys and other jungle insects. Sleep at your local family home one more night to truly cherish this once-ina-lifetime experience.

Head back to the jungle hostel in the morning and arrive in time to enjoy a delicious lunch with some free time afterward to swim in the tea-colored waters of the Rio Negro. Prepare your belongings for your return trip to Manaus, arriving around 5:00 pm.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 1. What type of transportation is included with the pass?

6. How long is my pass valid for?

The bus pass has a one year validity meaning you can begin and end your pass anytime you want, taking as long as you desire between stops to enjoy all of the unique and interesting destinations as well as free activities included in your pass along the way..

We offer you the safest and best local transportation available in each sector. You may find yourself aboard a First Class Bus with A/C, TV and WC, a 12 passenger mini-van, or in some cases in developing countries where the infrastructure is not the best such as Guatemala, Honduras or Bolivia you will travel in local shuttle transportation, second class buses, flights or trains. Rest assured you will travel on the best available means of transport. Getting from one destination to the next will surely be an exciting experience!

7. What accommodation do you recommend?

We provide you with a list of recommended hostels or budget hotels in each destination so you can stay in safe, fun, comfortable and affordable lodgings during your trip where you can meet like-minded travelers and have a great time. Accommodation is not included in the pass price.

2. How do I activate my Bamba Experience bus pass?

Send us an email a few days before your initial departure date so we can get in touch with you and send you the information regarding your pass and free activities. You can also give us a call on the phone or on skype to speak with a Bamba representative in person at any time.

8. Can I change my departure dates?

Yes! The Bamba hop-on hop-off bus pass is a flexible and convenient way to travel which allows you to make changes to your itinerary (departure dates) any time you desire so you can enjoy each destination to the fullest!

3. How do I make a booking for the next bus or tour and where do I pick up my tickets?

9. What does minimum recommended travel time mean?

Easy! Contact us via e-mail, GMAIL chat, Skype or over the phone and let us know when you wish to depart. We will confirm your departure by sending you an e-mail with your confirmation numbers and information.

We recommend a minimum travel time for our routes so you will have time to enjoy the cities, towns, activities and nature without feeling rushed to continue. This is usually the shortest way to travel through the route with time to see and do it all.

If your next route is by Mini-Van... We will ask you where you are staying so we know where to pick you up. All you have to do is wait at your hostel to be picked up at the specified time.

10. What if I�m traveling on my own?

Many Bamba Experience travelers arrive on their own and meet friends quickly so feel free to do the same! The hostels and free activities are a great place to meet people and since everyone has the freedom to change their departure dates, you might find a new travel partner and link up with them during your trip.

If your next route is by First Class Public Bus or Flight... We will send you an e-ticket number, departure time and bus station / airport address via e-mail where you will need to arrive on your own at least 30 minutes prior to your departure. There you can present your photo ID and e-ticket number at the indicated ticket counter to pick up your paper tickets or boarding pass.

11. Are there any age limits?

If you are between the ages of 18 and 118, we invite you to travel with Bamba Experience in Latin America and have the time of your life!

If your next route is by Local Bus or Train... We will send you a confirmation e-mail with instructions on how and where to pick-up your ticket so you can board the bus. Sometimes, we will deliver the tickets to your hotel reception.

4. Do I get a voucher after purchasing the bus pass?

Everything is handled in an environmentally-friendly electronic format, so your bus pass vouchers and sector confirmation numbers will be sent to you via e-mail two days prior to each sector of your trip.

5. Can I travel in both directions or backtrack?

Your Bamba Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Pass can only be used in the direction of the pass purchased. If you would like to add sectors or change the dates of departure you can reach us via email, skype, or telephone anytime!
