If you want to experience the Amazonian culture and nature, which city would you choose? Manaus? Iquitos? Belem? Tarapoto? Leticia?

Never been, but I would choose Manaus and Iquitos. I would like to travel the entire Amazon in boat starting in Peru all the way to the Atlantic ocean.

Manaus has a great Carnival, and nice lodges in the forests nearby.

Parintins has a famous folkloric festival in the last weekend of June.

Belém has a huge religious event in the second weekend of October, and is one of the main cities in the area, with a great and diverse culinary.

There are also beautiful river beaches in Tapajós river, close to Santarém, from August to December.

Opera Festivals are in Apr/May in Manaus and in Aug/Sep in Belém.

Leticia is quick, easy and cheap to get to. VivaColombia (owned by the European low cost giant Ryan Air) is beginning flights to Leticia at about $80 return from Bogota.

Gorgona is more expensive and more difficult to get to, however it is whale watching season.

Both are good destinations.
