  • Loved the bird watching and the local wildlife. This includes the piranha fishing. We went as part of an activity with Posadas Amazonas (a great company). 
  • Enjoyed a lovely afternoon on the Lake spotting wildlife. We saw caiman, macaws, a Tarantula and even managed to sneak in some Piranha fishing. Very half day excursion. 
  • Sunrise and rain forest sounds in the morning is a very special and beautiful experience, sailing trip with an experienced guide who was good to spot and explain about the different birds, animals and fish.
