I didn't know about lodges in the forest before this trip. The room was beautiful - simply/stylishly architected, yet classy. The vegetarian food was the best I've had in Brasil. The forest is unbelievable. Every centimetre seems to have life on it. I saw an ocelot, tapirs, otters, capybaras, caimans, lizards, a few different kinds of monkeys and a huge list of colorful birds. I recommend kayaking to get close to the river birds. I recommend taking in the forest floor on the Brasil Nut trail. I can't recommend this place enough :)

Cristalino lodge is a very nice place to stay if you want to discover the beauty and richness of the amazonian forest. All is done here for the comfort of guests: nice and large bungalows, common areas with wood-designed bar, restaurant (very good services), library, meeting room and shop. You even have the possibility to refresh yourself in the river Cristalino from the floating deck (don’t underestimate the strength of the currents!)

The property manages an extensive network of trails including the access to two towers overlooking the canopy. Some of the paths are only accessible by boat. All of them are only available with your guide. Cristalino lodge is engaged for the biodiversity in this part of the Mato Grosso and is not –only– a business. It merits so in my opinion the term of eco-lodge.

The guiding here is diverse and reflects the different expectations of the guests.
My guide was Leo; a very keen birder able to spot and identify the small and elusive birds of the forest. In one day, it is possible to contact more than 100 species but you must have in mind than most birds are very discreet and hided in the leaves. The use of playback is a way to attract some of them. However, it’s a source of disturbance for the birds and could have reverse effects, in particular when using too frequently and too loudly. It causes also a noisy perturbation for the guests who prefer enjoying the natural sounds of the forest. So, be careful with this point Cristalino and help your guides to respect your own rules!

A superbly located lodge supported by excellent service and meals together with very good accommodation. The owner's philosophy and commitment to the environment is to be commended as are the demonstrated practices that are consistent with that philosophy.

We traveled through the Pantanal and southern Amazon with Michael Ellis of Footloose Forays
along with guides Ben Freitas and Fabiano of BioDiverse --saw 4 jaguars in the Pantanal, >250 different bird species,-- pythons, giant river otters, caimans, and butterflies. Wound up at Cristolino Lodge and a fabulous villa/room with lots of attention to detail. Lovely place and would go back in a heartbeat! Staff was friendly, helpful, and the food excellent. Very comfortable with monkeys in the trees, and butterflies outside the room..

Room Tip: did not see the other rooms but ours was 5 star!

From the route in by road and river, arriving at the welcoming dock, Cristilano Lodge is
a great stay. Wonderful food, variety of trails to explore, from lodge or by boat. Great bird watching all around and from 2 towers on property.
River great for swimming or kayaking. Wildlife abounds. Staff accommodating to all guest needs. Comfortable library for relaxing , internetting or reading. Great deck areas for sitting daytime or by evening fire. During my stay, musicians played several nights. Luxury in the jungle.

Room Tip: Some cabins more remote and private , though longer walk from lodge - may be issue in dark for some.
