“Stunning view”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Bring repellent when you go to this place if you dont want to be bitten alive by mosquito. It is a stunning and beautiful. A bit dissapointed that I did not see many animals, only 1 sloth and couple of birds

“Lillies and monkeys”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We visited the lake during our Amazon River cruises, and whilst we were a little disappointed that we didn't see a greater variety of birds and animals, the highlight was a large family of Capuchin monkeys on the elevated board walk close to the lake where the lilies are found.
Visiting in January enables a better viewing experience that near the end of the rain season in June when much of this area is under water.
There is a covered area near where the boats dock selling what we found to be expensive tourist items.
There is also a large restaurant that on the occasions we were there was not open.

“Giant Victorian Lilies”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

We hired a boat guide to take us to the Meeting of the Rivers & Janauari Ecological Park. It was about $75/each & lasted two hours led by a friendly, informative guide. We found him across from the market above the AJATO terminal. The group had name tags & seemed legit & not pushy. We really enjoyed the tour. I imagine it's quite different in the rainy season but at the end of the dry season there wasn't much water & the lilies were fairly small at about 5'. It's a short but hot walk from the river & there were lots of birds, spider monkeys, & a few caiman. Not to mention one of the biggest trees we've ever seen. When the water is high, I'm pretty sure you boat through. There's a nice restaurant with knick-knacks at the beginning of the village. We didn't eat the food but the people seemed friendly.

“Definitely worth it!”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

You leave Manaus port to the other side of the river. There you will find a floating restaurant, handcraft shop and walkway to the beautiful lake where you will find the Vitória Régia pant which floats on the still water. The view is stunning. On the way back, you go through the handcraft shop again and stop at the restaurant for lunch, which is normally included with the ride. Lots of food is served, it does taste really good, fish is great. You will go back home with great pictures and a very unique experience.

“Birds and giant water lillies”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

Janauari is beautiful! Lots of bugs though since its in the solimoes and the area is so very fertil. Incrediable Victoria Regia plants and amazing birds. Lovely trees and one has a chance to feel like being in the jungle and yet be so near Manaus.
