Great place to go to see wildlife. We saw a family of giant otters playing and fishing for over 40 minutes.

“Piranhas and Giant Otters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Nothing beats relaxing on a catamaran in the Amazon! Our group left at the crack of dawn so we enjoyed a nice sunrise. We saw a variety of birds, went piranha fishing and saw endangered giant river otters. I'm not a morning person but this was worth the early wake up call :)...Sunblock and bug spray are a must.

“Giant River Otters!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

Had a wonderful day on the lake with Chemo our guide from Inotawa Lodge. Saw a Howler Monkey dozing in a tree and loads of different butterflies and birds including woodpeckers and "asthma birds" but the highlight of the day was definitely the Giant River Otters that we managed to spot. They came so close to the boat it was awesome and we got some really good pictures.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Watching the Hoatzins in their natural enviornment was well worth it. Giant River Otters were facinating to watch.

“A wild life experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

We were lucky to see a family of great otters swimming and playing. Had a go at piraña fishing, which were surprisingly small and lots and lots of beautiful birds
