Our crew will be picking you up from the airport or bus terminal on your arrival and will be driving you to our city office. Here you can leave your belongings that you may not need while touring the Lake Sandoval.
We will then drive you in our 4X4 to the boat pier. Here we will be embarking on a scenic boat ride to our Sandoval Lake lodge. On this short boat ride, you will witness the biodiversity of the Amazon Rainforest and Amazon Basin.
After relishing a typical Amazonian lunch we will start the full day Lake Sandoval Tour by visiting the Monkey Island. This is one of the unique places in the rainforest, as the name suggests, Monkey Island is home to 13 species of monkeys. Our local expert will be explaining to you about the life of different breeds of monkeys that inhabit here.
We will then take the rowing boat and head to the part of the jungle where we will be doing a canopy walk. You will have a spectacular view of the entire rainforest from the tree top. Once you have had your fill of this activity, we will return to the lodge for dinner.
Our chef will be serving a delicious and a native Amazonian meal for dinner. After dinner, we will be heading out for a night walk for about 50 minutes to spot some nocturnal animals, snakes and alligators.

Hundreds of different species of macaws and parrots flock in early in the morning to eat the clay from the cliff. The clay here contains a distinct mineral salt which helps them to remove toxins from their body. After this, we will be returning to the lodge for breakfast.

We will be walking along the Lake Sandoval rimmed with palm trees, which is a paradise for nature lovers. Here you will be able to see the rich flora and fauna. The lake is also inhabited by nearly extinct giant otters and big caimans.
