This was such a cool experience to be able to spend a few days away from civilization in the Amazon jungle. The service we received from the staff running the lodge was very personal and they were extremely accommodating.
The food was amazing. We had fresh fish, meats, fresh fruit and vegetables and authentic Peruvian cuisine for every meal.
The lodge is deep in the jungle and you are living with the rainforest...all the sounds, animals, insects and weather...which we loved. It was extremely authentic. We also liked disconnecting from Wifi for a few days, as there is so much more to look at then your phone!
The accommodations are all you need. It is not a luxury resort, but comfortable and you are really immersed in nature. The lodge is extremely eco-friendly.
Our guide, Lucho, was incredible and very passionate about the rainforest. He knew so much and could answer any question that we had about literally anything. You could tell he really loves what he does. I would definitely recommend doing as many activities as you can, as that is the way you will see and learn the most about the jungle.
All in all, a wonderful experience.
This is a really great eco lodge offering a great Amazon experience. This is not a luxury resort, but in fact better because it's eco-friendly and based on sustainable eco tourism.
The rooms and main lodge are all appointed with basic needs--bed, mosquito net, sitting area, shower (note: no hot water), sink, and are all nice accommodations. I would highly recommend staying for at LEAST two nights if not three (likely no need to stay more than 5) as the trip to get there is lengthy--about 4 hours up-river on the way there and about 3 hours down-river on the way back.
Daytime activities include a rainforest walk with expertly guided knowledge of flora + fauna (seriously amazing staff!), a visit to the clay lick to see all kinds of parrots and macaws, kayaking on the river if you're so inclined, soccer games, and generally just relaxing in the amazing amazon with bird sounds you never knew existed.
Nighttime activities include a night-walk (again expert guided), and generally relaxing in the main lodge area playing cards, having a drink, reading, and generally relaxing.
The staff is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the entire Amazon region. Would recommend this to anyone who is looking for an eco-friendly Amazon experience!
