At 8:00 a.m. the whole group will be picked up in their accommodation or at the airport before starting the first stretch of our tour, that will take us to Santa Rosa. During the trip we can already see some members of the wildlife of the jungle: sloth bears, anteaters, toucans, etc. At noon we will embark on the boat that will take us to our lodge in the jungle. The boat ride will take 20 minutes to reach the Eco Lodge. Once we arrive there, we will settle in our rooms and eat lunch together.
In the afternoon we will take a walk through the areas near the lodge, where you can explore the local fauna: toucans, capuchin monkeys, anteaters just to name a few. To end the afternoon we will enjoy the amazing sunset above the majestic treeline. At night, after our dinner, we will make an excursion on boat to observe the alligators of the river. Seeing the reflection of the alligator’s bright and vivid eyes staring back at you from the darkness is what adventures are made out of!
