Glide in a wooden canoe across this oxbow-shaped lake and true wildlife-watching haven. Surrounded by lush vegetation, Lake Sandoval is home to thousands of species of birds, diverse marine life and many endangered species such as the giant river otter, red howler monkeys, red-bellied macaws, anacondas and side-neck turtles. At midday, return to the lodge for lunch. Then, later in the afternoon, visit the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway Interpretation Center, a network of seven 45-meter high suspension bridges through the jungle. Spend an hour and a half literally walking through the treetops looking out for different varieties of trees, orchids, toucans, woodpeckers and, hopefully, birds of prey, sloths and various species of monkeys.

The weather is tropical, with an average temperature of 32 degree Celsius (89 degree Celsius F), ranging from 25 degree Celsius (77 degree Celsius F) to 42 degree Celsius (107 degree Celsius F). The hotter season usually ranges from December to March and comes with frequent afternoon rainfall. Between June and September you may need some warmer clothing, since occasional “friajes” or Patagonia Cold Fronts can reduce the temperature to 10 degree Celsius (50 degree Celsius). Cool comfortable cotton clothes are required to counter the heat while sweaters and jackets may be handy at night. See Equipment and Luggage. Visitors must anticipate the extreme heat and humidity of the jungle by finding out the exact weather condition at the time of travel in order to be ready with clothing and accessories.
