We do not recommend Malaria pills. Our experience is the side effects can ruin one’s week and there is no history of Malaria on the Agua Boa River. Consult with your doctor on Malaria precautions.

Please check with the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta for updated recommendations on vaccinations and medicines needed for the Brazilian Amazon. 

*Please note the CDC website does suggest Malaria pills when traveling to the Amazon.  In our many years on the Agua Boa, we have not had any guests get Malaria.  There is a risk of exposure in more populated areas like Manaus.  Please consult your physician for further guidance.
