An exciting morning as we travel to ExplorNapo Lodge and enjoy a Canopy Walk in the Sucusari Reserve, one of the longest treetop walkways in the world. Next we visit the ReNuPeRu Ethnobotanical Garden and learn from a local shaman about the health benefits and uses of the 240 plant species within the garden. Later we return back to the lodge for a well-earned rest. Overnight in the Amazon Jungle. [B,L,D]

Day 3  Amazon Jungle

After breakfast, we head out to the Yagua Village where our guide explains the local Yagua Indian culture and crafts. Our journey on the water today is also the best time to try and catch a glimpse of the endangered Amazon River pink dolphins! At the village we have an opportunity to witness a blow gun demonstration which some of the Yagua elders still use for hunting to this day. After a cultural performance by the local Indian people, we continue to Monkey Island, a private reserve where more than five species of tropical primates including small tamarins, saki, titi and large woolly monkeys are protected.
