Piranhas Lake and Curucu beach

We will continue passing by the Piranhas Lake (what a fear!) With real piranhas of various sizes, stopping farther down at Cururu beach, a traditional crossing point, safe for a refreshing dip directly in the waters of the Tapajos River, in a stunning setting. Take the opportunity to record these moments, because it is worth it! 

Moça beach

We will continue to Moça beach, our favorite stop, where we will have a delicious beach picnic with fresh fruits: watermelon, pineapple, banana, passion fruit, orange, apple and coconut. Another beautiful scenery for photos, maybe walking on the beach of white sand or playing on giant rocks and swimming on a beach that looks like the sea.

Crocodile lake and Rock tip beach.

We will then sail to the Crocodile lake and beach, one of the most beautiful lakes in the region, where nature is still in balance and harmony with otters, alligators, turtles and a lot of beauty. You will have a few minutes of peace in this beautiful lake to reflect on the beautiful stops we made during the day (note: one of the sets of the children’s film TAINÁ III, more precisely the scene of the final battle in the film, was on the shores of the Crocodile lake).

There’s more, much more! Now, we arrive at the wonderful Rock tips beach, which has visual uniqueness, combining beauty and tranquility to have lunch and rest on the beach before crossing the Tapajos River for our main attractions. If you want, we can also have lunch at Saulo´s home, a tourist reference when it comes to the region’s restaurant, on top of a hill, looking out over the beautiful Tapajos River.

Jari Channel

We will stop at (****) Mr. Ederval´s property, where we will take a private tour to observe monkeys, sloth animals and learn about the fauna and flora of the Jari Channel.
