We stayed for 5 nights here and it was brilliant. We were the only people staying, did morning and afternoon walks through the rainforest as well as a boat trip. We saw lots of birds, frogs, butterflies, monkeys (howler, spider, 2 tamarins, and capuchins), peccaries and on the way out a capybara and a jaguar.
This place is run by the same people as Chalalan and its a great project. Its 100% owned and run by the indigenous community. The guide, Raul was excellent and the rest of the people working there were lovely. The food was fantastic and there was lots of it, both meat eaters and vegetarians were well catered for by Adela. Highly recomend this to anyone interested in wildlife, we will definately be back.
