What NOT to do when it rains! Aug 13, 2008
At Itacoatiara Beach there are two BIG rocks to climb on the left side of the beach. Many people go up daily for exercise. Others go up for the spectacular view.
NEVER go up if it is raining or even if it looks like it might rain. When it rains the rock becomes a slip n' slide. People are always having to be rescued from the top by helicopter because it becomes to dangerous to go down.
If you do get stuck do NOT try to go down unless you are extremely skilled as this may be the end of you. One misstep and you will go tumbling down with little chance of survival.
Also, if you choose to go up the big rock instead of the smaller one note that landslides can occur, and many of the trails and ropes needed to go up were taken out this last rainy season (2008).
