Pura Vida Amazonas. Fascinated by the Amazonas since childhood we are going to travel this year from the west to the east of the Amazonas basin. We start in Coca (=Puerto Francisco de Orellana) at the Napo river, Ecuador through Peru, Colombia and Brazil to our final destination: the mouth of the Amazonas River into the Atlantic Ocean. Thus Napoama is a composition of the names of the two rivers that will be the main course of our journey: Napo and Amazonas.
Up-date June 2021: We were forced to postpone our AmazonasXπrience due to the restrictions with the world wide Corona plandemic. Our flights were cancelled by Iberia. Moreover, the company refused to refund the already paid flights even after having agreed on the telephone that it would be refunded. After y year or so only one of us got the flights refunded through the refunding option by our credit card provider. The other of us is still waiting for his money.
As soon as the panic is over and normal travelling is possible again we will start the journey and post it here. In the meanwhile we will learn a lot of new skills, improve ourselves and of course post other useful articles on this website.
Follow us along the journey through a phantastic region and read about our tropical adventures. As we surely will learn a lot while preparing and making the actual trip, we will share our experiences regarding equipment, techniques and the region itself.
