Overhead, spectacular Scarlet and Red and Green Macaws and parrots are a regularly seen as they fly over the Lake. After the boat ride you’ll take the same path back to the lodge, arriving late morning at approximately 11am depending on the groups pace. After a 4 hour rest interrupted with a welcome lunch A twenty minute boat ride downriver from the lodge brings you to Centro Ņape, a traditional community clinic that produces medicines from rainforest plants and administers them to patients who either cannot afford to receive treatment in town or prefer traditional medicines An Eseeja nativa from the Community of Infierno will take you on a unique tour of Centro Ņape to explain the uses of various medicinal plants.
