Cristalino Lodge is a premier destination for nature lovers wishing to experience the best of the Amazon. The lodge is located on a 28,167 acre private reserve and offers unique outdoor experiences and adventures. Set in the middle of the jungle, Cristalino delights guests with its location and Amazon atmosphere.
Designed to embody harmonization with the Amazon forest, the lodge was built using eco-friendly rooms and bungalows to house its guests in a secluded atmosphere. Tastefully designed, the rooms are made of wood and ceramic tile floors.
A Standard Room provides travelers with simple regional decor and comfort. Each room features two or three beds, a private bathroom, and natural ventilation system. Each room accommodates up to three people.
Cristalino Lodge also features several Superior Rooms. These rooms feature two comfortable beds, a spacious bathroom, writing desk, private outside shower, ceiling fan, wide windows, natural ventilation system, and a small veranda with a hammock. The Superior Rooms are elegant, charming, and highlight the beauty of the Amazon with their tasteful decor.
A Bungalow provides rich experiences with the surrounding environment and are ideal for small groups. Each bungalow features two master beds and two additional sleeper sofas. Fully equipped with a ceiling fan, large screened windows and natural ventilation, these spacious bungalows are ideal for families.
Alternatively, guests may stay in a Special Bungalow, which is similar to the Bungalow, but also features an additional outside bathtub with hot and cold water in a private garden setting.
Regardless of if you are looking for relaxation or adventure, Cristalino Jungle Lodge is an oasis of comfort on your Amazon tour.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
