Amazonas Colombia/Rio Yavari - Brazilian visa necessary for US citizens?Hi everyone,
Plotting a potential trip to Colombia next year, and the Amazonas region is on our "must" list (shockingly difficult to narrow down in Colombia, I must say!).
We would come in through Leticia, logically, but then would want to explore a bit further, and it sounds like Rio Yavari would be outstanding in terms of the types of Amazon terrain we'd be able to see.
However, the LP book says visitors to Rio Yavari need a Brazilian entry stamp.
Does anyone have knowledge of whether it'd be possible to go to the Rio Yavari area for a few days without Brazilian visas? Or am I correct in assuming that we would also need Brazilian visas?
If so, it seems that would take some serious strategizing, in terms of how long we would stay there, etc. Nevermind the cost of a Brazilian visa for U.S. citizens (I'd like to thank my government for charging people an arm and a leg to get in, thus leading to reciprocal visa fees).
Any info would be much appreciated, whether it's about visas or other recommendations. Going to Iquitos is probably not an option.
