  • Descripción


    Our house is located a short distance from Manaus, in Açutuba Beach, on the left bank of the Rio Negro, Amazonas State, Brazil. Surrounded by pristine tropical rainforest, in its 80 thousand square meters we are devoted to forest preservation, combining the care for small animals to food forest initiatives having in mind the principles of permaculture. It can be reached via paved highway from Manaus, 35 minutes from the crossing of the Rio Negro Bridge.
    Depending on the season and the Rio Negro’s elevation, we can enjoy extensive, white sands covered river beaches, jungle trekking and canoe rides of igapós (flooded forest).

    A beautiful place surrounded by nature in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest
    It is located near the Negro River and is one hour distant from Manaus by car.
    We are committed to frofest preservation, working with the help of The Dessana Institute since last year we plan to develop a healthy environment to serve as an example to be followed by the neighbours.
    We traditionally welcome volunteers from all over the world to join the efforts to turn the place as a educational home for all of us.
    The range of work goes from basic maintenance to gardening and farming and there is always some construction going on. We offer breakfast and accommodation in shared rooms with fan in exchange for 5 hours of work per day, five days a week.
