  • 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.

  • The Lake is an area of wonderful blends between nature, silence, native species and glow.

  • Whether you are here well Piranhas comes Doo (fun, but more a gimmick) or enjoy the views and all the fauna who joined silence careful shows, no matter: it is a good place here! Piece also cooler than on land (but keep in mind the unrelenting Sun; there is no indent shadow of course). Giant Otters can show itself, as well as a variety of birds. Keep mainly to the sunset (and then take a good head lamp for the way back...!)
