We started our trip spending the day in LA, since the flight time to Miami was better from LAX than SFO. The next morning, we flew to Manaus, state of Amazonas, Brazil. We visited a park, swam in our hotel pool, and went to a churrascaria for dinner. Early the next morning we set out for Tupana Lodge, 180km away. We stayed at the lodge for 4 nights. Every day, we walked around, went in the boat, and lounged around in hammocks. Our last afternoon, we walked around historic Manaus before our late flight home.
