Climb and sleep in a treetop

Take a night walk
In that same reserve, or any other tourism agency, you can do a night tour through the Amazon jungle and see amazing species, such as snakes and frogs of bright colors but that are very poisonous, tarantulas, among others. It may sound dangerous and something you definitely don't want to do, but the experience will make you feel new and incredible sensations. On the other hand you will go with guides and specialized equipment to avoid a sting, however you should know that if they are in their natural habitat they do not tend to attack unless they feel in danger, so try to go quiet.
