A few questions- am I better off staying in Tabatinga or Leticia?
Where do you go to arrange transportation- to the port the day before, or is more time required? Can it be arrange at a hostel?
Do boats depart everyday? I've spoken to some people who tell me it's Wed and Sat only.
I also want to get a cabin as I am the world's lightest sleeper- I suppose this needs to arrange this a few days in advance?

1Hello I'm from Manaus and I confess that Idk much about Leticia/Tabatinga I know that they're close cities that means you a across a street you're in Brazil or Colombia. I think Colombia must be cheaper.
You could buy your boat ticket on the boat in the day of the trip or a day before, the cabins are very expensive and not much comfortable I suggest you travel as Brazil do in a hammock, the trip is long and food is disgusting sometimes....not mentioning the restrooms, but the trip is very beautiful and worth as a exp.
Keep informed about the faster way a boat called "a jato"

2Stay in Leticia--it's a nicer town with more lodging options. The port is very close; you can take a taxi or a mototaxi (if you don't have a lot of luggage), and the hostel staff will help you with that.
Wednesday and Saturday is correct, or anyway has been for quite awhile. I don't know how quickly the cabins sell out, so yeah, I would go to the office a few days ahead of time if possible. I hope the cabins are quiet for you...
