A TYPICAL DAY
A DAY IN THE LIFE…
7:00 a.m. – Breakfast is served.
Help yourself to fresh fruit, daily homemade muffins, pancakes, and eggs before you begin your day. You will definitely want to try one of our special foods: Tapioca crepes with coconut cream milk.
9:00 a.m. – Head out to the river.
You and a fellow angler will join your assigned guide in a shallow-draft bass boats. Morning fishing usually runs 3 to 4 hours but that’s adjustable according to your preference.
1:00 p.m. – Enjoy a traditional Amazonian peacock asado (BBQ) on the beach.
If you want to stay out all day, enjoy a refreshing swim in pristine, friendly waters while our guides fire up the barbecue. Or, find a shady spot, stay in the boat and enjoy delicious empanadas and sandwiches with homemade bread and more. Afterward, take a short nap in a hammock (no biting insects) or continue your refreshing swim. On the other hand, peacocks are often active in the middle of the day so you might want to skip this free time and just go fishing.
1:00 p.m. – Return to the River Train for a full meal and a short nap.
Remember, you are never far from your River Train, which could even be moving on any given day in your direction.
5 p.m. – Enjoy fishing until early in the afternoon.
On your return to camp, enjoy a professional massage from one of our masseuses, or just sit in the river in a chair with water up to your neck and wind down with a snack in one hand and a traditional Brazilian Caipirinha in the other. Recount the day’s events and swap stories with fellow anglers while parrots squawk by overhead. Sunsets in the Amazon are often amazing.
9:00 p.m. – Dinner is served.
Enjoy a variety of local foods including traditional Brazilan dishes. Service is buffet-style. Go back for seconds. Or thirds if you are really hungry. End your evening on a high note by sipping a glass of wine on the sandbar outside your cabin. The silence is inspiring, and the absence of ambient light lets you see more stars than you ever imagined. Yes, that sound you just heard was a big peacock smashing bait somewhere out there in the dark. Time to rest up for tomorrow’s fishing!
