I will never forget the first time I jumped in a boat and went to Cristalino Lodge. In the Teles Pires and Cristalino river, among the stunning primary rainforest, I saw macaws and toucans flying, monkeys and even a family of the endangered Giant Otter, just in the way to the lodge. The Cristalino Lodge is an outstanding Amazon destination for nature lovers. Located in a private reserve covering 11,399 acres – six times the size the Fernando de Noronha Islands protected area.
The hotel is set, like a precious stone, amid the lush exuberance of the Amazon forest, with accommodations that blend in with the native forest on the banks of the River Cristalino. Notable features are the wooden bungalows with ceramic tile floors, carefully designed to achieve a balance between comfort and practical sustainability. All the rooms offer Granado bath amenities, luxuries for your rest days that harmonize with nature
February to March
The forest is lush and full of flowers, especially orchids, heliconias and bromeliads. The river reaches its highest level in March. The humidity is also high. It is a good time to observe monkeys, due to the abundance of food in the forest. It is also a time when many species are making their nests.April to May
A thin layer of mist hangs above the forest early in the morning. It is a landscape that is well worth observing from the top of one of our observation towers. The sunset at this time of the year is particularly colorful. Many species, such as the monkeys, can be seen with their young and butterflies are also frequently observed.
June to October
The nights at this time of the year are a bit cooler, sometimes reaching 15°C. The forest is drier and the river reaches its lowest level, revealing rocks and rapids. The butterflies are very active and the chance of spotting larger mammals, such as tapirs and giant otters, on the riverbanks is much greater. The monkeys, on the other hand, are seen in smaller troops, due to the relative scarcity of food in the forest.
November to January
It is a sunny time of year when visibility is good. The forest becomes even greener and more luxuriant and many new philodendrons appear at ground level. Higher up, this is an excellent time to watch the monkeys and birds, as the vegetation is full of fruit and other foods.
