Very very interesting trip to see the amazon river , best food and lodge.
This tour was everything they said it would be. The lodge was good, rooms were clean and spacious.Plenty of self service food and service was friendly. One warning for the ladies do not wear black tight trousers, the mossies can bite through them. Loose clothes are a must. Make sure you have a chat with the Titi monkey at the rescue center he is very special!. It is worth staying for a few days in Iquitos and taking in the atmosphere. Explore the colonial rubber history in the museum.The involvement of Dunlop and Goodyear. It is also worth a visit to the restored river boat plus a visit to the mannatee and animal rescue center,
Fantastic trip, our guide Carlos really made it special.
Fabulous tour! The lodge was beautiful and had incredible food. They kept us busy with activities : I'd recommend bringing some clothes or toys to donate! You will make some kids/people very, very happy.
Very exciting experience. Modern accommodations for the room, dining, pool, etc. Also a nice taste of the jungle with the rooms right on the edge of the forest. The activities are spaced nicely apart, so there is down time to just relax and take it in. Not a primatve lodge like some others. Bring picaridin wipes for the mosquitos in the evening, and sunscreen for midday. Electricity was on for at least 6 hours everyday generator. Our guide for the 3 days was Victor, and he was top notch. Completely bi-lingual, thoroughly enjoys the river and jungle, and very knowledgeable. Keeps everyone perfectly safe. Bring extra soles peruvian dollars 3:1 US to buy souvenirs at the local native village and don't inhale after you've loaded the blowdart, you'll see what I mean. And take care of the staff at the end, they take care of everything for three days. Gratuity is separate for the guide and the lodge staff. They have boots and rain ponchos there. Hopefully the pics load.
Where to even begin... firstly, all the transfers were very smooth, no hassles. Those of us who were early into Iquitos for the lodge transfer were given an extra paid option to go see the market and the floating houses. Then the lodge was absolutely fantastic - clean, spacious, and right on the edge of the rainforest. The food was amazing too. Although there is no internet reception even if you have a data plan on your phone, there is phone reception for emergencies. It was nice to disconnect! All of the excursions were well-planned and well-executed, and our guide, Dik, was very friendly and knowledgeable. My favourites were the night boat, day hike, and the fishing trip. The only things I'd recommend for people taking this trip is to bring and use liberally the strongest insect repellent that you can find, as well as a bandana to protect your neck. If you have rubber boots, bring them don't bring hiking boots. All the staff at Heliconia were professional and helpful, and I would highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to go to the Amazon!
The trip is utterly amazing. If you only have limited time, it is the best Amazon Jungle trip for a snapshot experience.
This tour was amazing!!! I highly recommend it. The service was amazing and the tour guide was very helpful. The lodge was very beautiful and clean. It was a very relaxing plus adventurous trip! I and #39;m definitely planning on going back, but planning on staying longer than 3 days.
This tour was amazing!
I cant say enough great things about this adventure!!!! It was an awesome lodge located on the amazon. We started by stopping at monkey island, which was delightful. We got to experience all different kinds of monkeys and help with the support them by donating for food and medicines. Next stop was the lodge, which even had a beautiful pool. The staff certainly keeps you busy with hikes, boat trips to see the pink dolphins and fishing for piranhas, visiting local villages, both day and night. The meals were cooked to perfection and the fresh fish was the best!!! Our guide, Freddy, was so passionate and informative about everything. He was born in a nearby village, along with others on the staff. The rooms/huts were comfortable and didn't even mind the power being off at certain times of the day/night. We met some very interesting and fun travelers that stay the same time we did and learned a lot from them that we used for the rest of our trip. I would highly recommend this adventure for other travelers!!!! We love, love loved it!!!!
