KAIARA reveals the natural and cultural abundance of the Amazon rainforest in expeditions through the Tapajós river and its tributaries, aboard small, high-end vessels. The company – whose name is a combination of “jungle” (kaá) and “mother of water” (iara) in the Tupi-Guarani language – operates with the purpose of bringing visitors a genuine, humane and respectful experience in the region, hosted by the traditional communities, in order to strengthen sustainable tourism that generates income and promotes preservation. Its fleet of three boats is based in the village of Alter do Chão, Pará, just 30 minutes from Santarém (STM). They vary from 5 to 12 private cabins, with air conditioning, complete meals with a faithfully regional menu and a welcoming and specialized team of hosts, captain, sailors, cooks and governance. Regular departures from 4 to 6 days, or customized charters cater for groups, families, incentive trips and celebrations for up to 48 people. In all KAIARA itineraries, the opportunity to be dazzled by the nuances of three ecosystems where the rivers of muddy water (Rio Amazonas), clear water (Rio Tapajós) and black water (Rio Arapiuns) meet – each with its endemic fauna and flora. Memorable sunrises and sunsets link the days of genuine experiences with the riverside and indigenous people, combined with surprisingly produced dinners, picnics and toasts in unique settings.
