Cristalino Lodge is located in the Southern Part of the Brazilian Amazon, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in this very special ecosystem. The Ecolodge is situated beside the clean, calm waters of the majestic Cristalino River.
This region is recognised as an important area of the Amazon in terms of biodiversity. The exceptional number of species, even by Amazon standards, makes this one of the region's richest places for observing birds, mammals, butterflies and orchids in a Primary Forest environment. Cristalino Lodge is set within a huge Private National Heritage Reserve with 11,399 hectare of primary forests, an area 1.3 times larger than Manhattan Island (US). The lodge’s forest reserve is located just beyond the borders of the Cristalino State Park, an extremely important conservation area of 456,800 acres. The park is connected to other protected areas forming a huge conservation corridor in the Southern Amazon. Almost 600 species of birds have been catalogued in Cristalino Reserve, half of the total species in the Amazon.
The impressive ecolodge architecture was carefully designed to integrate harmoniously with the surrounding jungle, and includes 18 rooms and suites in 5 categories, now with electricity around the clock. Guests enjoy a cosy bed in very comfortable surroundings, with every convenience close at hand. The bar, with its bonfire burning in the middle of an open deck, is perfect for viewing the star filled night sky, while the restaurant serves delicious candlelight dinners.
Cristalino Lodge is seriously committed to the environment, with various initiatives towards responsible tourism. In addition, the hotel supports the Cristalino Foundation, an organization that is devoted to environmental education, human development, and research in the region. Everything is geared towards sustainability through tourism, helping guests to integrate with nature. For example bath water is heated by solar panels and an air circulation system screens cool rooms so no need for air conditioning.
A wide range of outdoor activities is available. The half-day tours take place each morning and afternoon, and can include canoeing, hiking in the forest along 30kms (18.6-mile) of trails, climbing the 50-metre observation towers, boat trips and fauna & flora observation. Our guides are all nature lovers who enjoy sharing their knowledge and respect for the Amazon.
