Cristalino Jungle Lodge

The Cristalino Jungle Lodge is nested in the middle of a Private Rainforest Reserve in the Southern Amazon, allowing visitors to experience full immersion into this ecosystem. The lodge forest reserve is located just beyond the borders of the Cristalino State Park, an extremely important conservation area of 456,800 acres.

The lodge is committed to help visitors have a wonderful experience in the forest while learning about the environment and its importance to our daily lives. The guides are passionate nature lovers who share their knowledge and respect for the environment because they believe that a joyful and positive experience in the forest will deeply enhance one’s relationship with nature.

The lodge was built in harmony with the surrounding forest and with respect for the region. They offer eco-friendly bungalows and adhere to sustainable practices. The limited number of rooms ensures that all guests will receive personalised attention and a unique experience.

Overall Rating: ★★★★★ (5)

Energy Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - The lodge currently uses hydrokinetic power combined with regular generator to provide energy. Solar power is being implemented for particular needs, such as computers and light bulbs. Power usage is limited to reduce energy consumption. The lodge has a serious approach to energy management and we expect to make further developments in this field.

Water Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - The lodge does not use any chemical or dangerous products that are harmful to the environment. Only biodegradable products are used for cleaning. The lodge promotes re-use of towels. The gardens were made with native plants in order to avoid interference on the ecosystem.

There are biological waste water treatments for both black and grey-water disposal, made with techniques from specialised personnel.

Disposal Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - The lodge has a serious approach to both organic and non-organic disposal. All non-organic material is separated and recycled through an efficient process that is shared among all the staff. Organic disposal is used for composting.

Eco-Active Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - The lodge has a strong approach to environmental education issues. For tourists, we have low impact activities: limit of up to 8 people per trail, no disturbance to the wildlife, trail management usage, preference to use canoes instead of motor boats, and strong sense environmental awareness shared among local staff and guides.

For the local community, the lodge supports the Cristalino Ecological Foundation, a non-profit organisation that is currently working with educational and conservation issues in the region. One of these projects is the School of the Amazon, which promotes environmental education workshops for the local children. This project received the Whitley Fund for Nature from the Whitley Awards in 2007

Protection Rating: ★★★★★ (5)
Staff Comment - The lodge preserves a Private Rainforest Reserve with over 17,300 acres (an area 20% larger than Manhattan Island). The region has a strategic position for conservation, because it is located close to threatened forests, and is recognised as on of the most important areas in the Amazon in terms of biodiversity. The exceptional amount of species, even for the Amazonian standards, makes this one of the richiest places for observing birds, mammals, orchids and butterflies in a Primary Rainforest region.

All guides have a very strong knowledge about conservation issues. The lodge has organic gardens for vegetal production. In 2008 the lodge was selected a winner of the World Savers Award from Codé Nast Traveler, one of the most important sustainable awards for the travel industry.
