Juma region is remote and relatively untouched offering a real and unique experience in the Amazon Rainforest. Juma Lodge is located 100km (62mi.) southeast of the Amazona state capital – Manaus.
Meet guide assistance upon arrival at the Manaus airport. Transfer to local hotel in Manaus (Novotel Manaus). Overnight.
Breakfast at the local hotel restaurant. Departure to Juma lodge at 7:00 am. The trip takes three hours via speedboat; then, van and speedboat again. During your trip you might encounter some pink dolphins on the way. Enjoy your first contact with the jungle and observe the giant water lily, the majestic trees (Brazil Nuts and Sumaumas), the birds and the local communities. At Juma Lodge a welcome drink prepared with exotics fruits awaits you. Lunch, a creative fusion between international and Amazon cuisine is then served. The afternoon activity is a reconnaissance tour through the igarapés (Amazonian creeks) and the igapós (flooded forest) in motorized canoes. Return to the Juma Lodge. At night, go out in a canoe ride to observe the night fauna and meet alligators, frogs and birds. Stay alert to the mysterious sounds of the forest and the starry sky.
Breakfast with typical fruits and regional food. Leave for a jungle hike. Once inside the Amazon forest feel its charm and greatness. All tours are led by a lodge guide with great knowledge of the area. Return to the lodge for lunch. In the afternoon we will go out fishing and learn more about the indigenous species of the Amazon (piranha, peacock bass). While enjoying the sunset, return to Juma, observing the Capped Herons and the Cormorant transform the landscape into an amazing show. Dinner will be complemented by the fish you caught earlier, cooked the Amazon way.
Early in the morning we will leave for a sunrise excursion, witnessing the transformation of the dark water of the Juma River into a mirror of the sights and sounds of the waking birds leaving their nests for another day. Breakfast. Visit to the house of a local native to learn more about their fascinating culture, including the manual production of manioc flour and the handcrafting of wallets and shoes out of rubber sap. Lunch at the Juma Lodge. Travel on a paddle canoe, just like the locals, while contemplating the dense vegetation, the height and width of the trees, the bird’s and monkey’s sounds. Everything is so amazing!
Breakfast. Return to Manaus. On the way back see a Sumaúma, the largest tree of the Amazon. Another important stop to see the meeting of the waters, the spot where the muddy waters of the Solimões River and the black waters of the Negro River run side by side, without mixing, to form the great Amazonas River. By request, the guide will take you to a dive spot, where you can feel for yourself the 8o C (14 o F) difference in temperature between the two rivers. A truly unique experience. Arrive at 11:30 a.m. at the airport or at your hotel in Manaus.
