I enjoyed the experience - floating down a crystal clear river surrounded by fish, but that's about it. Applaud the environmental and sustainable principles of the operation but for the price it's pretty expensive.

I would really recommend anyone to go here. It was just so much fun. The snorkeling down the river was brilliant and could clearly see everything. I felt like I got a sneak peak into the beauty that the world has to offer

Really nice and different from sea diving/snorkeling. Very transparent river and you can check Brazilian species. I would recommend for all ages, families and couples. They are very worried about sustainability. At the end, The lunch at he property is very nice!
