This is a great introduction to Amazon wildlife that you may or may not get to see on the river or in the jungle. I didn't like the way the manatees were housed though.More

There was a lot of walking, especially to the alligators. The museum within the grounds had very interesting exhibits and it was slightly cooler inside. Our guide, Rainier, was excellent. A native hut sold local craft work.
