Clicking on the small maps below will open a full-size map (1024 x 768) in its own window, on which I have drawn the route each ship took. For clarity, I have listed the ports of call on each voyage separately, along with their geographical co-ordinates (latitude and longitude.)

Ecopark Lodge near Manaus, Amazonia
This map shows where we stayed in the Amazon Ecopark Lodge (click image to see large map). I have also marked on the area where the Rio Negro and the Rio Solimoës meet and flow side by side for several miles as the Encontro dos Aguas or 'meeting of the waters'. We also stayed in this same lodge in 2001, where we took part in such adventures as piranha fishing, caiman and monkey spotting, visited the village of an indigenous tribe and undertook a three-hour nature trek through the rainforest.
