Airfare to Santarem, Brazil
Santarem stands on the southern bank of the Tapajós River, in northern Brazil. It is located about midway between Manaus and Belém and is the second largest city in Para.
Although it is mostly just a stop-over for those exploring the Amazon, the city doesn’t lack attractions of its own. You can explore the market (Mercado Modelo), check out the museum or spend time on the beach.
The city is served by an airport but most travelers prefer to get here by boat, as part of their vacation exploring the Amazon River. The airport receives daily flights from major cities in Brazil. It is served by the following airlines: Gol Airlines, TAM Linhas Aereas and TRIP.
A quick and affordable way to get to the city is via Brasilia. The round trip flight costs about $320 (although you’ll be making at least one stop along the way) and the airline offering the flight is TAM Linhas Aereas. If you want to save some money, make sure to book your flight in advance and avoid flying during the weekends.
And of course, you should plan the first leg of the trip carefully: the flight to Brasilia. No matter if you fly from the United States or Europe, there are several airline choices, including TAM Linhas Aereas and TAP Portugal. Avoid flying during the weekends and during the summer (when it’s peak travel season in the colder regions) and make sure to book your flight ahead of time.
