I have not been to this port, which is a small native village on the Amazon, but I love Brazil. I have been there both on cruises and on my own. Not everywhere in Brazil has the crime you will find in the huge cities like Rio or Sao Paulo. Brazilians are for the most part friendly, and like Americans. Don't let others here discourage you from getting to know Brazil. I will go back in a moment if I have a chance.
