Heliconia Amazon River Lodge
Take a ten minute boat ride to visit a family farm with a rustic sugar cane distillery located along the banks of the Amazon River close to Palmeras town. Watch how the locals process sugar cane extracts using horses and ferment sugar juice in wooden vats for a period of time to transform to alcoholic drink. Get a taste of the varied exotic beverages made from the sugar cane liquor and its by-products such as molasses. You may want to buy some to take home for yourself or as present.
