Upon arrival, weather conditions permitting, we can observe one of the greatest spectacles of wildlife: hundreds of parrots and macaws of various species descending to feed on the mud of a ravine. It is an experience you will never forget. Then we will walk along the river beach in search of animal tracks while we have a snack. We will return to the Lodge to have a mid-morning breakfast.
After a short rest, we will cross the river to visit a small tributary called the Gato River on the opposite bank, where there is a small waterfall, suitable for swimming and taking a refreshing dip. Back at the lodge, we will have lunch and have a rest. The moment is appropriate to observe the large number of birds that fly around the lodge.
