Description: The Acajatuba "Boiaca" Adventure
allows visitors to get a "taste" of the flora and fauna of
the Amazon Rainforest. On this two days / one night program
you will travel into the forest and explore a small part of

On the way we pass the famous "Meeting of Waters" where black waters
of the Negro River slowly mix with the brown colored waters of the
Amazon River. Upon arrival at
Acajatuba lodge you will be greeted with a
welcome drink before checking into your comfortable accommodations.
Lunch will be served
at the lodge followed by a guided canoe tour through the "igarapés"
and "igapós". While exploring this part of the mid-Amazon you will
get a feel of the mighty Amazon Rainforest that surrounds you at all
times. While paddling along the waters the bi-lingual Naturalist
guide will explain about the forest, the use of plants and vines and
the fauna in this magnificent region. You will return to lodge to
enjoy the always beautiful sunset over the Amazon forest.
EVE - After dinner we leave the lodge in small boats. A guide
will take us along streams and small rivers in search of the elusive
Amazon Caiman. With flashlight in hand he will try to get close
enough for a good look. Nocturnal birds and small mammals may also
be spotted along the banks of the river. Overnight at the lodge.

AM - The early morning hours are perhaps the best time to really
appreciate the Amazon rainforest. The sounds of insects, birds and
animals will stay in your mind for a long time after you have left
this part of the world.
Be prepared for an early morning wake-up call and a sunrise tour.
Some of your best pictures will be taken during this time of the day
when the night makes place for the day and the jungle comes to life.
Return to the lodge for breakfast followed by a guided walk through
the Amazon jungle and a visit to the dwelling of some local native
people. You will be able to observe the way these people live their
lives in harmony with the surrounding flora and fauna.
After lunch at the lodge we will return to Manaus where our services
will end at the port at around 5:30 PM.
