After that, we will return to the Wasai Tambopata Lodge for breakfast. Should you decide, we can stop at a nice cascade on the way back where you could swim or just relax.

After a short rest we will take a ride along the Tambopata River on a wooden canoe or individual kayaks. This activity accommodates all physical conditions and ages.

Or simply relax and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings.

You will camp at Fire Island- a small island close to the swamp, and eat tropical food for dinner. Overnight at the camp site in Wasai Tambopata Lodge (B, L, D)
