Embark on a guided jungle walk at 8 this morning, and visit the home of a Caboclo - a person of mixed indigenous Brazilian and European ancestry. Gain insight into their local customs and culture as you tour their residence, and observe the tedious production process of manioc flour, a key ingredient in the Amazonian diet.
Visit Acajatuba Village at 3 pm, a quaint riverside community situated on incredibly fertile soils. Fringed with swaying palms, discover the variety of fruits that grow on them, like the tucumã, cupuaçu, and açai. Learn how the people of Acatajuba Village practice their resourcefulness by producing artisanal crafts using natural materials found in the jungle.
After the sun sets, embark on a nighttime jungle safari with your naturalist guide to spot caimans - amphibious carnivores belonging to the alligator family. There are six distinctive species, with the Cuvier’s dwarf the smallest at barely 1 m long, and the black caiman the largest, at up to 4.5 m. Equipped with handheld searchlights, explore the riverbanks for these nocturnal creatures, and perhaps have the chance to also witness nighthawks, snakes, and frogs.
