The Amazon remains a legendary place to this day, a place like no other where you will be able to appreciate the immensity of nature, and let yourself be swayed on a canoe at the search for all its mythical inhabitants such as pink dolphins, caimans, sloths and of course the anaconda.
Forget about internet, electricity and all the modern comfort, in the Amazon, it is all about connecting with nature, its sounds and letting your mind rest for while. Most of your exploration will be done on water where your guide will do his best to show you the variety of creatures living in this incredible natural ecosystem. You will also get a chance to explore on land by day or night and visit an indigenous community where the shaman will teach you about cosmovision.
Your ecolodge is located right next to the lagoon where you will see incredible sunsets and maybe go for a swim. It allies traditional bamboo construction with modern facilities, so that you can get a peaceful rest at the end of your busy day.
