From here you will continue by boat to the eco-lodge where you will be met and greeted with a refreshing drink made from local fruits. After being shown to your room, have lunch and a chance to rest in the hammocks away from the midday heat, listening to the sounds of the jungle. In the afternoon, take a nature walk along a jungle trail with a guide who will show you a variety of plants used by the local Tacana people. Your guide will briefly explain their medicinal purposes, how locals consume these plants for food and use them for construction. Along this trail there is the chance to see a number of different animals including spider monkeys, howler monkeys, wild pigs and a number of different birds, plus a variety of insects and spiders. After returning to the lodge, enjoy your evening meal as the nighttime sounds of the jungle come alive and the darkness falls. After eating we can take a night walk to search for nocturnal animals and look for caimans near the river bank using spotlights to reflect off their eyes.
