Full description

Discover the Amazon Rainforest by staying at Amazon Boto Lodge, a Jungle Lodge with all activities and meals included. The lodge is located 120 kilometers south of Manaus in the lake Juma, which is an area surrounded by a beautiful virgin forest. The lodge was built on stilts in an isolated area in the jungle with a view of the lake and jungle. The lodge does not disrupt the natural environment, which is important for forest conservation. Stay in private suites with air-conditioning and bathrooms. The Lodge is a simple and clean place, perfect for small groups interested in exploring the Amazon Jungle. You won't be overrun by guests: the Lodge hosts no more than 18 persons at a time.

Lunch and dinner are generally regional fresh fish, chicken, beef, beans, salads, rice, vegetables, and fruits. At breakfasts, enjoy bread, cheese, eggs, coffee, milk, juice, tea, and fruit.

Day 1

: At 8:00 AM, you’ll be transferred from your hotel to the Ceasa port where a speedboat will take you to the “meeting of the waters”, the point where the Rio Negro and Solimões River meet. From there, you’ll be taken to the Careiro Village on the other side of the Solimões River. This excursion continues by car or van for about 1 hour to Maçarico lake. A final trip by speedboat takes you to the lodge, arriving there at approximately noon.   At 3:00 PM, the day’s activities begin. Leave the lodge by canoe for dolphin and bird watching, as well as piranha fishing. End the day by observing a spectacular sunset around 6:30 PM before heading back to the Lodge for dinner. At night, go Cayman spotting, a truly thrilling experience.

Day 2

At 5:30 AM, you’ll be taken by canoe to watch the sunrise in the Amazon rainforest. Return to the lodge for breakfast before heading out for a jungle trek that takes up the rest of the morning. During the walk, you’ll learn all about medicinal plants, trees, and insects—you might even see some monkeys. . If the 3, 4, or 5-day option is booked, the afternoon activities start at 3:00 PM with a canoeing adventure in a flooded forest.

From September to February, this activity is done by trekking. Spend a few hours quietly passing through the exuberant Amazon jungle while learning about the flora and fauna from your guide. After dinner, go out on a motorized boat for the Night Safari, where you’ll be likely to see some wildlife along the rivers and small channels.

 

Day 3

From 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM, visit the home of a local family to learn about their simple but wonderful way of life in the forest. Return to the Lodge for lunch. If the 3-day option is booked, after lunch you’ll leave for Manaus at about 1:30 PM for a 4:30 PM arrival.   If the 4 or 5-day option is booked, after lunch, go out to explore some more small channels and spot birds, monkeys, Caymans, and dolphins. Optionally, learn about nocturnal wildlife by staying overnight in the forest and going spearfishing.  

Day 4

After breakfast, go trekking in a different area where you’ll learn survival techniques and plenty of facts about the forest. Return to the Lodge for lunch. If the 4-day option is booked, leave for Manaus after lunch for a 4:30 PM arrival time. If the 5-day option is booked, prepare yourself to go out camping in the woods and spend the night in the forest with your guide.  

Day 5

After breakfast, go on a canoe trip to explore and swim in the lake. Return to the lodge for lunch at about 11:00 AM. After enjoying lunch, leave the lodge and head back to Manaus.
