Day 2 - Lago Sandoval

We will begin the day with an abundant breakfast and then we will take a walk of an hour and a half through the virgin forest towards Lake Sandoval. The abundant vegetation will fascinate us with its orchids and platanillos with striking flowers of red color of 1-2 meters of height. We will go through the waters looking for the piranha and the famous piache, considered the largest freshwater fish in the world and that grows up to 2 meters long.

In this area we will see animals like giant otter, black caiman and a great variety of birds. We will make a stop to enjoy our lunch and those who wish can refresh themselves in the cool waters of the lake.
We will return to our hostel where we will enjoy a delicious dinner and again we will have the nocturnal activities optional.

Where we will see a variety of animals, such as turtles, macaws, small cats and large mammals such as the sajino. After our lunch we will go through the long paths in the forest and we will pass by a suspension bridge (100 m long and that is to 60 m of height) while we learn more about the native animals of the Amazon and of the medicinal plants .

We will return to the Hostel, where we will have our delicious dinner, and like the previous nights we will have the nocturnal activities optional
