The Cristalino Lodge guides are nature lovers who are passionate about the Amazon. They have in-depth knowledge about the region's species and take great pleasure in sharing it with our visitors. The learning of these experienced professionals ranges from books to the trails, from the theoretical to the practical, teaching us to value this school that is the forest. Our talented and passionate team makes the Cristalino experience like no other in the Amazon.
The itinerary you are offered for your visit will be recommended by your guide, aimed at giving you the best chance of observing the wildlife, according to the season. Expeditions are available during two periods of the day:
All the guides have long-distance radio and also carry a telescope and binoculars. Our team of guides plan according to the needs and interests of each group and they are bilingual and specialists in birds and nature photography.
For visitors who want their own private guides, such services can be hired, subject to availability. For visitors who don't require a private guide, the groups may be organized according to individual interests, with each group having no more than seven people.
"The Amazon forest is a vast area containing dense vegetation, so finding animals in it is a major challenge. That's where the Cristalino structure and guides make all the difference. Within the area of the lodge there are kilometers of well-maintained trails, hides at strategic points within the forest, well equipped boats and even two 50-meter towers for observing the forest canopy teeming with life. And in all of these places, the trained guides will point out wildlife that an untrained person would never spot."
