    Description

    We are a family own Amazon jungle lodge that has programs for tourists interested in wildlife sightseeing. We need help with certain shores that mean making the visit of tourist more pleasent and enjoyable.
    This is an amazon private reserve and there is a lot of animals, insects, birds, botanical species and wildlife in general. There are no towns in the vicinity of two hours up river or down river ( the river is the only highway) and there is a staff of that fluctuates between 8 to 10 people. There are groups of tourists that visit us and we have to interact with them and give them instructions of what to do and what not to do.We don't have any Tv but we have wifi on certain hours daily.
