Reserva Natural Marasha, Puerto Alegria
(4.8/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
At Reserva Natural Marasha, hike through Amazon forest among huge trees, while exploring the diversity of wildlife, such as multicolored parrots and capybaras. Go sport fishing for piranha, take a ride in a kayak, or do some alligator spotting. Other safe and well-organized activities include a canopy zipline, swimming and canoeing in the picture-postcard lake, and guided walks through the jungle. The reserve gets its name from a small, spiny palm that grows around the lake. Relax in clean and comfortable wooden cabins (equipped with nets that keep out mosquitoes and other insects), and listen to the sounds of the jungle.

  • We had an excellent native guide who accompanied us throughout the day. We taught many things about nature, culture, and it was very helpful. My kids especially enjoyed the Piranha fishing and kayaking.

  • This location was a spectacular day tour adventure for several reasons! You take a boat ride up the amazon river to get to the location! You have to go up a very steep bank once you get there and you ...  more »
  • To visit Marasha there are several options, depending on the travel agency with which you plan to travel. To me I had to get in the afternoon there can do fishing, known to the piraricu, or just relax in a hammock. Get dinner, very rich. And at night can make you a tour in rio with the intention of observing alligators. Raisins the night there, the rooms are comfortable, each bed with mosquito net. Electricity service is available from 6 pm until 10 pm. The next morning breakfast then make you a tour of the Lake can appreciate the 2nd largest world Ceiba tree, you can kayak or can choose to rest all morning in a hammock reading or sleeping. There is no cell signal (except the operator course, but certain specific points). It is excellent for really isolated from the desire is always living in the city

  • At first was unsure what to do when we got here. A beautiful lake encircled by massive Cebu trees and full of tiny piranha. Ask your guide and you might be able to fish for them with chicken skin from the cocina. Take the opportunity to kayak the lake and maybe sit in the hammock for a couple minutes. Beautiful.
  • OK...
  • This hotel is magical, it's rustic, does not have many amenities, but it is worthwhile to spend at least one night in the hostel. I'll be back and I will stay at least 1 week to relax and unwind me.

  • On arrival at the start of the walk is accessible to a spectacular view of the Amazon River. The hike is full of gigantic trees. Low season era and is could see the watermark in the bark of trees. Insects, fruits, flowers, roots modified, reptiles and amphibians different. The end of the road is an amazing construction on the banks of the dlnde Lake is having lunch in a common dining room and rest in cool hammocks on the shores of the Lake. Macaws, a pirarucu, a family of Capybaras and ceiba mas big that I've seen in my life awaits you at that point. The return boat has more surprises: birds and monkeys. A journey of beauty, wonder and learning.
