What's so special about Cristalino Lodge?
Cristalino Lodge is set in a private reserve adjacent to the 66,899 hectare Cristalino State Park. The park flanks the Cristalino River in the highlands of the Amazon River basin's southern slope. The work of a family who are pioneering conservation and sustainable projects in the Alta Floresta region, the lodge provides support for scientific research through the Cristalino Ecological Foundation.
Cristalino is a less visited region of the Amazon and gives good wildlife spotting opportunities. It is also well placed for combining with the Pantanal.
The lodge consists of around 20 rooms and bungalows of various categories, each with en suite bathroom, hot water showers, roof fans and insect screens.
There's a communal living room, dining room and bar, a small natural history library and a floating deck for swimming, watching wildlife and relaxing. Two 50-metre high observation towers provides 360° views over the rainforest canopy.
We recommend a stay of at least three nights to properly enjoy the area. Typical excursions are designed for anyone with an interest in learning about Amazon flora and fauna. The programme includes treks, river tours and much more, all in the company of expert naturalist guides.
