The Cristalino Lodge is situated in its own Private National Heritage Reserve in Northern Mato Grosso. The area exhibits high bio-diversity and is one of the best places to observe birds, mammals, butterflies and orchids due to the exceptionally high number of species. The Cristalino reserve has a large number of its own endemic species including white-cheeked spider monkeys, red-nosed saki, cryptic forest falcon, crimson bellied conure and black girdled barbet.
The private reserve covers 44 square miles; which is larger than Manhattan. If it were its own country it would be the 187th largest in the world.
The Cristalino Lodge takes its name from the river, which in Portuguese means “crystalline” or "crystal clear". This perfectly describes the pure waters of this tributary of the Teles Pires.
According to Ariane Janér of the Brazillian ecotourism society "The accommodation has been carefully designed using natural material and providing excellent ventilation, solar heating, waste treatment and a perfect balance between design and comfort."
The lodge has two 164-foot observation towers to help you get a good look at some of the 550 bird species that call this corner of the jungle their home.
