This private ecological reserve is accessible after a flight to Coca and some navigation on motor canoe.  Early starts will allow you to take advantage of the cool morning hours when the rainforest’s animals are most active. In the afternoon, visits begin at around 3:00 and often continue into the evening, when the nocturnal insect and frog chorus begins.

Activities proceed slowly and are spread out over a wide area and allow visitors to explore several distinct but equally fascinating habitats. Several trails lead through pristine terra firme forest, where 150 foot kapok trees tower above and roots form huge buttresses to give trees support. Others follow strategically raised boardwalks in seasonally flooded forests, where walking on the ground would be nearly impossible during most of the year due to groundwater. One trail many choose to follow even leads across fallen tree trunks and a steel cable zip-line through rich swampland! Impressive wild and bird-life are waiting for you to discover.

Other favorite activities include: paddling dugout canoes along tannin-rich black-water creeks and lakes, where lush flora thrives and spotting animals possibilities -from the tiny pygmy marmoset to the feared ocelot or puma-, are endless; swimming and piranha fishing, night walks and canoe trips, with the aid of flashlights, often reveal creatures seldom seen during daylight. Caimans (of the alligator family) and giant insects rule the jungle after sunset. More information click here
