Yacutinga Lodge - Yacutinga Private Reserve.
Early in the morning you will go on an interpretative hike into the Yacutinga Private Reserve, accompanied by specialized guides who provide very good information about the different natural environments, their flora and fauna.
At mid-morning we return to the Lodge.
Free time to enjoy the comforts of the lodge (swimming pool, observation towers, fireplace, bar, etc.).
In the afternoon navigation in kayaks through the Yacutinga Reserve calm waters. This is a good time for photo-safari and wildlife observation in general. This navigation lasts almost 3 hours, crossing in silence the area of Galery Forest.
For those more adventurous our guides organize a night walk through the jungle. Assisted by power lights and observation equipment to discover nocturnal fauna, particularly owls and caprimurfids that are active at night.
Yerba Mate Plantation and Kagui Pora 2 Guarani Community.
The tour of a Yerba Mate plantation (Ilex paraguariensis), the main agricultural product of the Andresito Colony, allows us to understand the use that man has made of this emblematic species of the Missionary Jungle, by domesticating it and transforming it into a cultural ritual.
The visit to the Guarani Community neighboring Yacutinga Lodge. The idea during these hours of participation with the original community Kagui Pora 2, is to understand the social reality that our Guarani brothers live and try to develop this low-impact eco-tourism activity to help them in various ways.
