The cause came along first. And it is through tourism that we are able to bring our purpose to fruition: to preserve and reveal to people the beauty of the Amazon. It is visitors like yourselves who help to sustain a private reserve of more than 11,000 hectares and all the environmental projects of the Cristalino Foundation. In return, we provide welcoming bungalows and a comfortable environment within the midst of the forest, as well as an infrastructure for observing the wealth of species and exuberance of the vegetation. Everything has been built respecting the phases of nature and according to the best practices of sustainable architecture.
Offering a quality standard that has been acknowledged through major awards in international hospitality and travel, the Cristalino Lodge is a destination for nature lovers from all around the world.
Nature lovers and researchers visit the Cristalino Lodge to enjoy the experience of the Cristalino private reserves, covering 11,399 hectares of pristine rainforest.
Since 1999, the Cristalino Foundation has been conducting scientific studies of the region’s flora and fauna. Moreover, it's social initiatives work with children and local communities in and around Alta Floresta, focused on environmental education, conservation of natural resources and a sustainable economy.
When one becomes aware of the importance of the Amazon, one is forever guided by that experience. Protecting the rainforest in the south of the Brazilian Amazon is at the heart of our cause.
It is the forest that holds the equilibrium in balance, in its medicinal plants, bringing water and life-giving moisture to many regions of Brazil, that nourishes the soil and the plants growing in it. It is our greatest defense against climate change and an ally in sustainable economic activities that benefit the community.
We need the forest to sustain life, and the Amazon needs you too.
