The Acajatuba Lake has several creeks and canals, connecting this part of Negro River to its neighbor the Amazonas River, receiving a strong influence of muddy waters making the excellent place for eco-tourism. Due to the high acidity of its waters, particularity of the Negro River, the proliferation of insects, including the causes of diseases such as yellow fever and malaria, is very low. Anyway we recommend the use of repellents and sunblock, always.

Although simple, the guest will be conquered with our regional cuisine fish-based dishes, like the famous Pirarucu, one of the giants of the Amazonian rivers that can reach up to 2 meters; the delicious Tambaqui, the local people preferred in 'stew version' - kind of fish soup with potatoes and eggs; and the best of all: Tambaqui grilled roasted.

Our intention is to give life and a more human approach to activities. The local guides or 'mateiros' are always from surrounding communities, so visitors have a closer contact with residents of the region with its way of life and behaviors, and also, because we believe that this is one of the ways to contribute with the development of tourism of sustainable basis, in order to be socially and economically inclusive not forgetting, however, the environmental factor.
