fter a neverending cry from a black
sky full of water, the first rays of the sun appear, allowing the observer to quietly view the long, serpentine, running streams of water that quickly get lost in the exuberant vegetation of the Amazon jungle, inhabited by unruly and noisy wild animals, little accustomed to the presence of humans.
This natural space is full of color and enchantment. It's a place which can be explored without ever stopping. A jewel bathed in torrential rains….To admire, to get to know, to search for the surprising fauna that slip away amongst the fertile vegetation, where precious flowers such as the orchid are to be found in abundance.
Rare animals can be found here, such as the capybara (Hydrochaeris hydrochaeris) -the biggest rodent in the world - the giant river otter(Pteronura brasiliensis),the river otter (Lutra longicaudis), the jaguar (Panthera onca), the black cayman (Melanosuchus Níger), the south american river turtle (Podocnemis expansa), the toucan (Ramphastidae), and the tapir (Tapirus terrestris).
The three toed sloth (Bradypus variegatus) can also be found, as can the spectacled bear (Tremarctos ornatus), the spider monkey (Ateles paniscus), yacaré (Caiman yacare), puma (Puma concolor), manatee (Trichechus manatus manatus), swamp crocodile (Crocodylus moreletti), and yellow headed parrot (Amazona oratrix), amongst others.

The "pequepeques" (motorized canoes) zip through the mightiest and longest river in the world, the Amazon. The native peoples who live on its banks hold treasures of legends and myths, some of which have never been told before. Wild symphony of day and night; the nature, mystery and magic of the unkown jungle.
