Day 1: Departure from your hotel in Manaus at 7:00 am. The trip takes three hours via speed boat, van and speed boat again. During your trip you might encounter some pink dolphins on the way. Important stop to see the meeting of the waters, the spot where the muddy waters of the Solimões River and the black waters of the Negro River run side by side, without mixing, to form the great Amazonas River. Enjoy your first contact with the jungle and observe the giant water lily, the majestic trees (Brazil Nuts and Sumaumas), the birds and the local communities.
At the lodge a welcome drink prepared with exotics fruits awaits you. Lunch, a creative fusion between international and Amazon cuisine is then served. The afternoon activity is a reconnaissance tour through the igarapés (Amazonian creeks) and the igapós (flooded forest) in motorized canoes. Return to the lodge. At night, go out in a canoe ride to observe the night fauna and meet alligators, frogs and birds. Stay alert to the mysterious sounds of the forest and the starry sky.
Day 2: Early in the morning we will leave for a sunrise excursion, witnessing the transformation of the dark water of the Juma River into a mirror of the sights and sounds of the waking birds leaving their nests for another day. Breakfast. Return to Manaus. End of a truly unique experience at Juma Lodge. Arrive at 12:00 a.m. at the airport or at your hotel in Manaus.
