We loved this trip despite nothing ever drying in the Amazon and being bitten alive! Note that this is not a luxury hotel in anyway, there is no WiFi and only cold water. However the food is good and the staff very friendly. Our guides English was excellent. If you want a totally different experience away from the busyness of day to day life, this is for you. We swam in the Amazon and saw a sloth, anaconda, macaw and fished for Piranha!

Worth every dime! The best food I've had in Peru Teddy, the chef is really nice as well. The people were welcoming and informative at the lodge and in the surrounding villages. My guide was supposed to be in English but he was still learning some words so we went back and forth from Spanish to English. The Lodge was spacious and safe however, there is no hot water for showering which I didn't mind. If you want to go by it! I went to the lodge alone and I am a Black female but there was a Caucasian female there as well as families, and couples.

Amazing experience with our 2 children ages 7 and 8. We had a wonderful guide, loved all the scheduled daily activities, and enjoyed the food. This place is remote and rustic. You will only have about 3 hours of electricity a day, no hot running water sometimes no running water at all!, no cold refrigerator full of drinks, no cell service, and no walls or ceiling - just mosquito netting and a thatched roof. But all of these cons are part of what makes the experience amazing. You're not at a posh Hawaiian Island resort - you're in the jungle, so just embrace your sweat and deet-covered self and have some fun! Swim with the piranhas. Seriously, do it.

It was great. Amazing experience. And our tour guide Francisco was really good and helpful. If you want jungle adventure in Amazon, this is one you should definitely try. Good lodge and food as well, and everything else was well taken care of. All the other support staff was also very good.

It was an amazing tour. We saw pink and grey dolphins in the Amazon river and different animals at an animal sanctuary and in the wild. We also visited the Yaqui tribe and I had enjoyed it very much. Watching the sunrise over the Amazon river was so beautiful and relaxing. Hiking in the primary jungle was awesome. Going fishing was fun too. Love the visit to the shaman in a village near the lodge.
The food was excellent and delicious. Our tour guide Sandro was very knowledgeable and speaks English really well. Love the fact that they also dropped me off at the airport after the tour ended.
There is not much of a privacy in the lodge though if you have a neighbor under the same roof since two units share one roof. The only complaint I have is the lock to the door at the lodge which is hard to use. Other than that, it was an awesome experience. I highly recommend the tour.

Trip of a lifetime! Martin was the best tour guide and did everything to make sure you had fun! The food was great! Animals were incredible, spider monkeys at the lodge, animal reserve to hold animals including a sloth, and seeing pink dolphins! Very rustic and bring lots of bug spray. Loved it!
