We  contrast  with  all  other  destinations  in  the  Amazon  because  of  our  dedication  to  real ecotourism (the property itself and selected excursions), respect for our employees, culture, nature conservation and improvement (reforestation, etc).We  also  offer  a  personal  service,  high-quality  accommodation,  superior  meals,  unique activities and excursions.

With a depth ranging from 1 to 7 feet the pool is great for swimming, diving or just splashing around. From the pool, there is a spectacular view of the Llanganati mountains.
