Prior to the convergence of the Valeria River into the Amazon, there are a cluster of lakes. Many of the homes you will float by are huddled along these shorelines. The location is perfect. The homes are hidden from passing traffic along the Amazon. Yet it is a short distance to navigate to the main river. The freshwater is calm and virtually free of silt. The area is small enough to provide a sense of community yet large enough to enjoy the feeling of isolation.
