About the Peacock Bass:
Called ‘tucunare’ in Portuguese, the peacock bass is a born ambusher and a ferocious freshwater fish. Interestingly enough, the ‘bass’ portion of the fish’s name is not correct. Tucunare are actually members of the cichlid family (like oscar).

Acrobatic brawlers on a line, they snap 30-lb. monofilament like thread, straighten saltwater hooks, mangle lures and send rods home in pieces. They are almost exclusively diurnal and aren’t the least bit sun-shy, hitting most lures at the surface with explosive force. They’re not too choosey about baits, but landing them is guaranteed to be one of the toughest freshwater fights you’ll ever get in.

Amazon Juma Lodge – Amazon – Brazil

6 nights at the Juma Amazon Lodge. The Juma Amazon Lodge is located in a remote and untouched region 100 km (62 miles) southeast of Manaus. It can be reached in approximately three hours by vans and boats (during the trip we pass through the Meeting of the Waters and, on the way back, also by the Pirarucu Floating Dock). The trip can be made by hydroplane (30 minutes) upon request.

The structure and operation of the lodge have been carefully designed to be totally integrated into the rainforest environment, minimizing human footprint while enabling visitors to enjoy and preserve the flora and fauna of the surrounding jungle. The lodge is built over solid ground, on a series of stilts, facing the silent waters of the Juma Lake.

Bungalows

There are 8 standard bungalows facing the jungle and 12 special bungalows facing the lake, all nestled among the treetops 15 meters (49 feet) above the water (during the dry season), in a private, secluded area of the lodge. All bungalows are comfortable, with private bathroom, fan and balcony.

Restaurant

The restaurant is also built on stilts and has an excellent view to the Juma Lake. The meals are buffet-style, with regional and international cuisine.

Front Desk

The front desk, located in front of a deck area with a nice lake view, has a small bar, some games (cards, backgammon, chess, etc.), books about the Amazon, painting implements and a professional telescope for moon and star observation.

Hammock House

The hammock house is very popular among our guests, especially after meals and activities.
