We traveled to places not exactly on a map. We did leave the main river and get off into tributaries and lakes to visit the villages. Manaus is the only city in the middle of the jungle. But all points on the Amazon start with departure from Manaus. This is where we were! I have done all sorts of google map searches and I have tried to pinpoint our locations on this map. I may be a little off, but thi is as acurate as I could get. I even went to the library and looked at several detailed maps of the world and South America to try to find the exact location of the villages. Just know I was deep in the Amazon after traveling by boat over 18-24 hours in one direction.
