At 09:00 hours, departure with the guide to the excursion in the primary forest. Canoe transportation from the lodge of 10.30 minutes. By primary we are are talking about a forest that has remained intact, and has never been exploited, fragmented, or influenced by humans.
In this forest that you can observe different species of monkeys (Gray Shag, Cappuccino, Squirrel, and Spider), birds, insects, amphibians, frogs (such as the famous Ecuadorian poision frog) and snakes (Bothrops genus, Micrurus and Coral Fats). The 3-hour trek through the high forest allows you to feel the immensity of the Amazon between giant trees that reach 60 meters high.

At 06:30 pm, the appointment is at the Lodge’s restaurant to start one of the most impressive experiences that you can have in the jungle: The night walk.
Everything that can be observed in the day, the animals and the sounds, in the night changes completely. Birds, butterflies and monkeys leave the post to tarantulas, insects, frogs, amphibians and snakes. Unique in its kind, the night walk allows you to get in touch with the most virgin and uninhabited jungle that ever.
The day concludes with an excellent dinner.

Here, our native Kichwa guides will introduce you to the jungle with its flora, its inhabitants, its fruits, its trees and above all the use that the natives make of all this: from medicine to food, going to the tools to work and live.
The walk continues with the arrival at the lagoon of the alligators where you can see “Caimanes Anteojos” (also called crocodilian caymans).
These specimens live on the island in total freedom. Males can measure between 1.8 and 2.5 m long.
