Afterwards, go on the Leoncito Hike, where you appreciate the immense variety of flora around the lodge. On this walk you can taste the water that Uncaria tomentosa (cat's claw) has within its vines - some say it can cure cancer and AIDS. You'll also be amazed at how huge the ceiba tree is. In addition, you will see the world's smallest monkey, the pigmy marmoset, and the squirrel and tamarin monkeys. If you're lucky, you'll see the howler monkey, whose deafening roar can be heard many miles away. After watching a sunset over the forest of mirrors head back to the lodge for dinner. In the evening, take a boat ride to see caimans, nocturnal birds and mammals.

Activities in the Amazon Jungle (B/L/D)
Have an early breakfast to charge your batteries for your boat trip to the Sapote lagoon and to Laguna Moena where lazy bears and monkeys are seen. Catch different kind of fish, including the famous piranha in the Corriente and Purura lagoons (being more difficult in March, April and May). This is an area that has many strangler vines, being the favorite spot of the bird "hoatzin" or shansho. This colorful bird looks like a prehistoric bird because it has three claws on the middle joint of the wing. Return to the lodge for a dinner buffet. At night, you do a night walk in search of huge frogs, anaconda's favorite food. In addition to seeing tarantulas, it is worth clarifying that despite the bad reputation, they are not dangerous to humans.
Once you catch any piranhas, we recommend you let them go. If you like, we will take the largest piranha you catch to the lodge so that the chef can prepare it for dinner. The rest are set free.

Day 3: Amazon Jungle, Peru

Have an early breakfast and get the chance to swim close to pink and grey dolphins, visit the famous Victoria Regia and visit local villages.

Activities in the Amazon Jungle (B/L/D)
Enjoy breakfast and take the boat trip to cruise the Amazon River, where you will experience the most magical moment of your trip, which is to swim in the same river where the pink and grey dolphins live. You can see them, but don't expect to touch. On the way back to the lodge, you will see the biggest aquatic plant in the world, the famous Victoria Regia. It is also easy to see iguanas. After this, experience an excursion by boat or canoe to Jorge Cano to search for the Howler Monkey. Share the late afternoon with the friendly people of the jungle, in the village San Juan de Yanayacu. The visit is very spontaneous; travellers sometimes play soccer with them or just walk around the village. You can buy handicrafts that they make themselves based on seeds and vegetable ivory. Return to the lodge for a dinner buffet. On your last night, take a night canoe trip to feel the sounds and animals of the jungle more closely.
