What’s the Ese Eja Day like?
Guests, lead by their guide, will depart their lodge for a visit the to Infierno Community. During their time in the community, they will be able to experience a diverse set of activities, such as:
- The Heritage House – The community’s main house will be open for guests. It has a heritage museum, showcasing antique photos and clothing, ancient ceramics and stone instruments, as well as working tools. Also, contemporary handcrafts will be on display, and how-to demonstrations will be offered. Some of the products will be available for sale, and profits from the sales will benefit all members of the community.
- 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.
- Boat ride – In the same fish pool where guests fish, there are four fiber glass boats for boat rides. Guests are able to row their own boats or community members can row for them. Our staff, including a lifeguard, are always supervising the activities. All guests must wear a life jacket.

- There will be access to hammocks for the guests who want to relax at their leisure.
- Also available, a fish feeding station near the pier, $1 per fish food package will be charged.
