Meals and Camp Life
Our staff provides both high quality and ample meals throughout your stay. A breakfast buffet is typically served at 6:00AM each morning. Pancakes, eggs, toast, fresh fruit, bacon, cereal and fresh coffee are all standard fare. Lunch is typically fixed (box-style) by each angler in the morning before departing for fishing. We encourage everyone to stay on the river the entire day to minimize travel and to maximize fishing results. Appetizers and cocktails are offered immediately upon the anglers return from the day’s fishing. Dinner is served around 6:30 PM. Typically, a selection from a mixture of Brazilian and ‘American’ foods enliven the camp’s dinner menu. Delicious soups begin the meal. Fresh fish, beef, and chicken are accompanied by an assortment of beans, rice, bread, salads and mixed vegetables. Desserts are a welcome finishing touch. Our trips provide an open bar with soft drinks, beer, wine and domestic liquors always available.
Personal Possessions -- Our rivers are almost completely devoid of human habitation. Those few individuals that are occasionally found on the rivers (usually either 'caboclos' or Indians) are known to our staff and are friendly, since we have typically negotiated fishing rights from them or their reservation or community. We have never had an incident of thievery in our camps. Our staff are honest, reliable people who respect all your belongings. Valuables can be left in your bungalow or cabin without concern.
A WORD ABOUT LOCAL CULTURE -- Please remember that you are heading into the middle of the Amazon jungle where a slow pace of life and a "laid back" attitude is entrenched in the culture of the native people. Therefore, crisp timing, efficiency as we know it and effective planning are sometimes out of sync. Don't worry - relax and adjust to where you are. Our staff is always at your service; you'll find them to be attentive, warm and helpful.
