The family owned and run Cristalino Lodge located in a private reserve bordering the vast Cristalino State Park, in the southern Amazon. Cristalino was one of Brazil’s’s first eco-lodges and is still among the best in Latin America.

The rooms and bungalows are stylish and luxurious, with ceiling fan and private bathroom. The lodge uses solar energy to keep the water warm and the rooms cool. Candlelit Brazilian cuisine draws on regional recipes and seasonal organic ingredients. A floating bar-deck beside the River Cristalino is the perfect place to relax by day to the sound of birdsong and later to gather round the fire pit as the rainforest chorus awakes below star studded skies.

This 11,399-hectare biodiversity hotspot is known for an extraordinary diversity of bird and other wildlife, with over 600 species, including the harpy eagle and black-girdled barbet, 2,000 species of butterflies and over 40 mammal species such as tapirs, monkeys and a resident giant river otter family.

Activities include rainforest hikes with expert guides, observation towers and excursions by kayak and boat, such as the Sunset Tour with its wonderful views.

The founders of Cristalino Lodge are committed to the conservation of this fragile ecosystem. They set up the Cristalino Foundation to promote the protection of the region’s natural resources, with its many important research projects and educational programmes. Lodge rates include a contribution for the Foundation.
