Guests at the Posada Amazonas Lodge now have the chance to experience a half day or a full day at the Ese eja Community of Infierno. After breakfast at the lodge, guests, lead by their guide, will take a boat 10 minutes to the Infierno Community, arriving by 8:30 a.m.. During their time in the community, they will be able to experience a diverse set of activities, such as:
- Catch and release fishing – Guests will visit the local fish farm, where five pools have been built. The largest pool is designated for fishing activities, while the other four are exclusively for fish farming. Guests will fish using a traditional fish cane from the pools edge. If desired, our local staff will cook up the fish for lunch! Otherwise, fish is released back into the pool.
