Amazon Gero Tours

Ecotour in Manaus

The effusive Gero Mesquita, an all-round good guy, runs a popular lodge in the Juma-Mamori area with comfortable dorms and private rooms, and a cadre of skilled guides (several former guides have opened agencies of their own). Besides standard tours, Gero arranges multiday treks into untouched forest and organizes ‘social sustainability’ programs where travelers work on much needed community projects.
