Acajatuba Toucan

In another area of the Amazon, along the Rio Negro is the village Acajatuba. A young woman founded this village when she was 16 years old, and she still lives there today. The village is now home to about 35 families. The local handicraft store here had some of the best souvenirs we’ve seen so far. The local bar/restaurant had a huge anaconda skin that was proudly displayed on the wall over the bar. The owner was proud to show us his collection of anaconda ribs and teeth. The village pet was a beautiful white-throated Toucan that proudly posed for photos in the colorful setting.
