Will write soon, but we loved it here. Not as much wildlife as the Pantanal but beautiful setting. Great food and perfect hosts. The water around the lodge comes from the Rio Negro, and later in the year a lot of it dries up so they have to walk rather than go by boat. The water is tea brown due to the high PH and the vegetation. The trees reflect …
... habits, diet, and predators. I guess the one mail caiman has an entire family (wives) that has has beaten into submission.. hmmmmm I better check on the fact when I get home. The guide is a little masochistic (might have been just his interpretation :P).

How has this lodge rated in the past?
This was such a great experience. Peaceful location, no mosquitoes, fantastic food, beautiful setting!!! We loved our stay here. The food was the best we have eaten in South America. It was well presented, healthy and very tasty. The excursions (2 a day) were all worthwhile and informative. Stay here you will not be disappointed.
