This is something that actually is a pain in the Amazon, the itch mite is easy to get in the jungle. We always recommend to our tourist to wear swamp boots, long socks and before getting into a walk to put some Jhonson oil on their legs.

There is this product that you must have it in you first aid kit, Crotamiton in lotion is really good for this kind of itching and will get rid off the itch mites.

Currency exchange in the Amazon

I don't recommend it in Leticia or Iquitos because they like to take advantage. They currently exchange at different rates and sometimes they will give you fake money. The best recommendation is to exchange it at Lima, Bogota or Manaus in a business not in the streets.
