Our 2 families of 4 arrived at Macaw Bank in late March to be welcomed by Ron who is a great host. Ron arranged all of our trips for us.

This is a beautiful and quiet place to stay. Real jungle experience. Nice trails walking to the Jungle and the river. We enjoyed watching toucans and a few pair of beautiful parrots in the morning. River is nice and clean and we had fun swimming in this Macaw river.
