“A Must see attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

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.

“Januari lake”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

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 caboclos place to see the 3 toed sloth and a Boa.

We took a private tour with Amazon Explorers. Very expensive, but safe and worth it. Meeting of the waters, Lake January, Native village, diving with BOTOS and lunch at Pousada Jacaré. We left from Tropical Hotel pier at 8 am sharp and returned at arround 4 pm. A long speed boat trip, with a local guide and the most extraordinary boatman - Sr. Bida. He took us through some amazing igarapés, turned off the engine so we could hear the forest! great. We didn´t dive - only looked at the Botos beeing fed. Saw some vitorias-regias. Took photos with the Tatuyos - indians and ate a very honest lunch. Had to wait at the restaurant for a tropical storm to pass before returning to Manaus but even that was a thrill. The boat did "flap" a lot. Only acept tours certified by EMBRATUR - help protect our environement. Do not go for the cheap non certified ones!

“Stunning view”
3 of 5 bubbles 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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
