The green lawns in front of our lodge slowly fade to brown as the dry weather continues. However, a slight breeze blowing during the day still keeps things very comfortable for us and our guests.
When we look at the gleaming surface of our beautiful river everything seems calm and wonderful.
But as the fly gently descends onto the surface, and starts its merry dance, suddenly another world shows itself. The river miraculously erupts into life as our two worlds collide. Fish and man commence battle as time stands still…
The fish that dwell in our river and move so smoothly through its waters do not give themselves up without a real fight…
The group that has been here this week discovered all this magic on each day of fishing.

And as for the animals that co-exist in the habitat that surrounds us, again they were generous with their appearances; two jaguars, monkeys, capivaras, deer and a huge number of bird species, delighted our fishermen friends and lovers of nature.
Here at the Água Boa lodge, we offer the complete experience,and sometimes, with the cooperation of Mother Nature, we go a little beyond …
