Cristalino Jungle Lodge is hidden in a private reserve in the Southern Brazillian Amazon Rainforest and home to a rich variety of flora and fauna. The rooms are elegant and unfussy (as you would expect from a remote jungle lodge). The floating deck on the river is the perfect place for wildlife spotting in the early morning or late afternoon.
From Campo Grande fly to Alta Floresta airport where the Cristalino team will meet you and drive you to the port (about 1.5 hours). From here a 30-minute motorboat ride takes you to the lodge. Cristalino is known for its incredible birdwatching. Usually starting before sunrise, when birds are most active, expert guides will help you see endemic species hidden in the trees, and you will likely spot birds that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
The lodge also has a range of excellent activities, from wildlife photography to canoeing and viewing the rainforest from the 45-metre observation towers. From up high you are likely to see macaws, toucans and aracaris feeding in the canopies.
From The Amazon, we can arrange for you to fly South to Rio or Sao Paulo for a night before international flights home. Or you may wish to extend your stay in the rainforest with a private river cruise. On the coast, the beaches and sandy dunes of Jericoacoara are within relatively easy reach.
