After lunch, continue your navigation towards one of the most pristine black-water systems of the Amazon Basin, home to legendary Pink River Dolphins, Black Cayman, and the enigmatic Amazonian Anaconda. Take a canoe trip upstream to further experience the striking beauty of this aquatic jungle world.

      Day 3

        Flooded Forest and Monkey Island

        Explore a swamp forest from the comfort of a high-rise boardwalk, and hope to discover the wildlife which frequents these Morete Palm Forests. Visit a local home where funerary urns from the 17th century have been discovered and excavated. After lunch, spend some time exploring one of the large islands. For more adventurous guests, the opportunity to go Glamping is available. Please inquire for more information.

Head over to the Parrot Clay Licks, a great place to witness one of the most exciting wildlife spectacles in the Amazon. After lunch, explore a local jungle trail as you head to a unique water museum. Learn about many of the creatures that inhabit this lush environment.
