Most of the staff working at the Refugio Amazonas lodge have different professional backgrounds, there are biologists, tourism professionals in conservation, or local community members experts on keeping the forest clean. We assign one guide, (all of them are speaking English, unless otherwise requested other language) for a group of ten people and unless is smaller than ten people will be merged with other groups to reach the total. If you would like a private guide with specific requirements please let us know.
After dinner time, we will be out at the river's edge at night, scanning the shores with headlamps to find some wildlife as they are more active at night. We might catch the attention of red gleams of reflection from caiman eyes at the river bank. Our purposes is not disturbed the animals instead, we will observe them quietly and get the most of this wildlife experience of been in open nature.
