Spent peaceful time by this lake, look carefully the more you look the more you see. Saw Cayman, turtles, bats,birds and monkeys. Need to sit quietly and patiently and you will discover more and more.

We traveled this lake by boat in the early morning hours of day 1 of our trip to the Amazon. We fished for Piranha and saw many different species of bird while we were there. Unfortunately we never spotted the black caiman or the giant otters, but the group before us saw both. Honestly it didn't matter. The peacefulness of... More

This was the most peaceful place I have ever been to in my life. The guides were wonderful and spotted birds, animals and fish as we glided along. I appreciated the fact that they were committed to protecting the land. They taught a lot !

We were able to see two otters be in their own home. They were fun to watch as they played and caught fish to eat. We also caught a few piranhas.

It was a great trip on the lake with Louis and his help, we enjoyed is very much. It was a petty the we not could go futher onto te lake because is was a national reserve. We would have liked to see more wildlife on the lake, like e.g. alligators,

Wow! A trip into the Amazon in South America wouldn't be a trip complete without some piranha fishing. We did this both in Peru and Suriname. Very fun. The lake is very peaceful, we were the ONLY boat on the lake. Saw the endangered GIANT Otter, caimans swimming, lots of birds including toucans and macaws flying overhead. Love it. Love... More
