Speedboat transfer (note–is 4 hours) up the Amazon, then the Tahuayo tributary to our lodge.
Lunch and dinner included
From the main lodge
Acclimation to the Amazon rainforest and getting to know your guides; your guides getting to know you. A Long hike in varzea forest; exploring flood forest and the canopy experience.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner included
Boat to the trail head in terra firme forest.
Hiking into the interior of the wilderness to establish campsite.
NOTE: We choose a site for camping where we will not disturb wildlife. Also the movements and noise we create while camping will keep wildlife at some distance. So, while this is a great adventure in the Amazon wilderness, it is not the best wildlife viewing option.
Exploring remote wilderness of the Amazon with your private guide and an assistant guide.
Morning exploration, then breaking down campsite, return in the afternoon by boat to the main lodge

Most common which include: Peacock bass (butterfly), aruauna, catfish (many varieties, some which grow over 200lbs), piranha, pacu, oscar, and vampire fish (payara).
Peacock bass (more information)
The area where you’ll be fishing is home of the Butterfly Peacock Bass. This species of peacock Bass averages between 5 and 10 pounds. In other areas of the Amazon, and parts of Panama and Venezuela, there is a species of Peacock bass that grows to 20+ pounds. But, the smaller Butterfly Peacock Bass is a much more ferocious fighter, and is the preferred species for professional bass fisherman. It is also delicious eating. Make no mistake, a 10 pound bass is a big fish, and these things fight like a train.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]
