As you drive, gaze out the window at the passing blur of the dense Amazon rainforest passing by.
Stop first at Sanctuary Waterfall, just a short ways outside the town. Walk among the dense plant life and mossy stones to see the forceful waterfall that is part of the Urubui River.

Board your vehicle and travel to Presidente Figueiredo proper for a traditional Brazilian lunch at a local restaurant.
When lunch is over, travel a short distance to Iracema Waterfall, located in a local ecological reserve. Take a dip in the shallow pool at the foot of the waterfall and walk through the pristine protected forest that surrounds the falls.
When your full day of exploring Terra de Cachoeiras is finished, enjoy transportation back to your accommodation in Manaus.

This trip was certainly not worth...
, Nov 2017
This trip was certainly not worth the $132 per person. The waterfall are nice but nothing amazing or that large. The best part was the included lunch. But as far as scenery goes, this trip certainly lacked the promised views. Honestly, the trip should cost about $40USD for what it is.
Tour wurde 12 Stunden vor Beginn abgesagt, Danke für den verlorenen Tag. Ich erwarte die umgehende Rückzahlung des Tour Preises. Das ist das 3.Negativerlebnis mit Viator, Finger weg von diesem Saftladen.
