The Amazon River carries a greater volume of water than any other river in the world and drains a vast area through the South American rain forest that nearly crosses the continent. The Central Amazon River starts at Manaus, 1000 miles from the sea and continues upstream another 1000 miles to Leticia on the Colombian border. Westwards after Manaus, the character of the river changes as the Amazon narrows, bringing its densely forested banks dramatically closer to the decks. Travel up the Rio Negro to visit Anavilhanas Archipelago, a naturalist's paradise. Among the sites may be: Arnacayaco National Park, home of a remarkable collection of huge Ceiba trees and Cuxui Muni, a traditional Indian village. Also you can explore Lakes Tarapoto and Uara or on the Rio Badajos sight rare forest birds and the glorious Victoria amazonica waterlily. Visit a small Yagua Indian village on the Rio Huanganay or Vendava, inhabited by the Ticuna Indians where village crafts include paddles, spears and necklaces.
