As part of our tour to see Encontras das Aguas (meeting of the waters) we had lunch at Parque Ecologico Januari (good food) and were able to by locally made souvenirs. Then we were instructed to follow a board walk that was quite a few meters off the ground to see the giant lily pads. The boardwalk was very unsteady... More

While this is a lovely location, and the ecology of the Lilies is amazing, this was more a shopping opportunity at a folk art market which was actually worth while!

The boat tour here was part of a larger Holland America tour but it was nice and peaceful on the lake travelling in 12 - seater covered boats. We did not see animals but lots of birds were resting and doing a little lazy day fishing so the photo ops were good. There are several floating houses in the area... More

Water level was down a little but the lily pads were raggy and very few; the boardwalk is rickity and in parts the railing was loose or broken, so take care in walking on it. The gift shop was nice, the food at the floating restaurant was very nice.

We had a guided tour -- giant lily pads had been attacked by something which they were not able to identify so they were in sad shape. Saw a few monkeys that came down when food was unveiled and 3 bats that were under the top of the dock. Viewed giant termite mounds on several of the nearby trees.

Now I understand what why rain forests are called rain forests. I never saw it rain so hard in my life. I was soaked to my underwear and I loved every minute of it. Seeing victoria water lilies growing in their national habitat was breathtaking. I will never forget this day.

I saw and explored the lake in a canoe while traveling with Amazon Clipper Cruise aboard the Premium river boat. I enjoyed seeing the flora and fauna of the area.

Nice to take a boat ride on the lake and see various birds. We had the most annoying tour guide, who kept mumbling to himself and was not projecting his voice. The boat ride into the inner parts of the Amazon was "meh". We had a better trip in the "flooded forest" in a canoe ride. They stop by a... More
