Description

You will be picked up from your hotel, after which following a short ride you will arrive at the port where a boat will be awaiting you.

You'll learn about the trees and medicinal plants, as well as the wildlife which will cross your path. After about one hour you will arrive at the magical Sandoval Lake, from where you will travel by paddle boat searching for the local wildlife which the lake has to offer. The lake is a home to many species such as endangered giant otters, black caimans, monkeys, turtles, fish, piranhas, and the largest sweet water fish: paiche. You will of course also observe many species of birds such as osprey, herons, hoatzin, cormorant, anhinga, and much more.

From there you will have the opportunity to see the magical lake from high up in the trees, as you take marvelous pictures and learn even more about the rainforest. Following that you'll return to the lake to explore the other side of the shore, before traveling back to the port. You'll then walk for 3 kilometers back to where a boat will be waiting to take you back to town.
