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!!!!

It was a nicely plan great tour. The tour guide Neal was born and raised there so very knowledgable. They plan all activities 1 1/2 to 2 hours long and then give us 2 hours of rest time so it was nicely planned. The food from lodge was exceptional, the best we had since Peru. Just be aware that there's no hair dryer and only has electricity from 5:30pm till midnight. The dining area and pool was very comfortable.

This was a wonderful way to complete my South America vacation. This lodge was extremely clean especially considering that you are in the jungle. This is apparently a resort for the upper class Peruvians, especially those with children. I was the only non Peruvian when I arrived but everyone was so kind. I was traveling alone but I never felt lonely. A few more guests from the US arrived the second day. I was assigned an English speaking guide. He was my guide the entire weekend. All transportation, food and excursions are included. The food was AMAZING!! You are served in a new dining room. Everything is fresh and delicious. I was so impressed with the lack of processed foods especially desserts. The excursions were better than expected. The trip to the village was eye opening. The indigenous people were wonderful and you will fall in love with the children. Be sure to take a large bag of candy to share with them. I highly recommend this to be added to any trip you make to Peru.

An absolutely amazing experience! The entire tour is perfectly managed, with airport pick-ups and drop-offs, and transport to every point of the entire experience.
At the lodge, our guide Daniel was incredible, and made sure that there was not a single boring moment for the three days. He went out of his way to show us animals and plants in the forest, and impressed us all with his amazing knowledge of the local flora and fauna.

The tour includes fishing and dolphin-watching, as well as night-time boat rides and jungle treks, each a memory for life in itself.
The food at the lodge is phenomenal too.

I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Iquitos, and would definitely do it again at some point.

Note: The lodge has no mobile signal, but the activities are so well managed that this is not an issue in the slightest. In fact, it is quite refreshing!

This relatively short trip felt like it was much longer than it was. It gave me a satisfying taste of what I'd hoped to experience - the wildlife, vegetation, culture. It was comfortable without feeling unrealistically luxurious.

This is one of the most amazing things we have ever done. Huge thanks to Nixon, our guide, and the Heliconia Amazon River Lodge. Their staff are just the best, so welcoming and the food is top notch. Piranha fishing is an experience everyone should have in their lifetime, the competition to catch one gets fierce!!.
The itinerary is very broad and is very interesting. Don't forget your bug spray and camera. We were very sad to leave.

It was a beautiful Lodge. I stated at the Heliconia Lodge Thursday-Saturday. I was picked up at my hotel: Casa Monrey where I was introduced by my Guide-Daniel. I was taken to the port where I already had packed by small luggage with everything I would need for three days for my Amazon Jungle Adventure. Daniel and the boat captain where very nice. Daniel the tour guide pointed out where the grey and pink dolphins where half way to the lodge and I was able to take great pictures. When I arrived at the Heliconia Lodge I was greeted by Marina the main hostess and person in charge with a drink AND a brief introduction then I had time to go to my beautiful room that was just across the pool. I really thought the lodge was like a four or five star hotel clean, well taken care of and well kept. They keep you busy with all the inclusive tours and activities. The food is freshly made and they take into consideration your likes and wishes. Actually, it needs to be said they seem to go out of their way to make you feel at home and comfortable. Only thing to keep in mind is the hours the lights are on which really your are so busy either enjoying the tours and activities and the pool and the lodge surroundings that is almost like you don't even give it a second thought. Also taking a warm/hot shower is not a problem the only thing you have to learn to regulate the water: first turn on the cold water knob next after a minute turn on the hot water knob and then next after a minute or so you regulate the two knobs to your taste. I want to say thank you to Viator which is the website that I used to booked the Heliconia Lodge amazing Lodge. Also to all the staff at the Heliconia Lodge and the waiter I think his name was Febursun , Marina the main person in charge and DANIEL the guide you all where so respectful accommodating sweet and just a jewel in the Amazon, Gracias! I had a wonderful stayed I just wish it would have last longer.

Do not come to Peru without experiencing the Amazon. Heliconia Lodge was amaizing - surpassed all my expectations. Our tour guide was Freddy Romaina - he was excellent, ask for him if you can, he would ensure your safety and make your tours enjoyable. The lodge itself was Five-star - excellent room service, location, and food. Be prepared to be without your cell phone annd internet! Choose Heliconia Lodge.

Great experience! We were happy with the packed days filled with nature and culture. There were four of us and they gave us a nice upgrade to two three-bed rooms so we had ample space. The lodge also had nice hammocks which was good for the evenings. This was an unforgettable adventure!

The adventure begins as soon as your plane lands. The pick up was smooth. We arrived with two other couples, they took us through the town and to the port, with some history of the small city along the way. Once at the port, we tried a bite or two of local food, then got on our boat and took us to a replica village of a jungle tribe . The families that live there live the jungle life but also cater to tourists, wearing their tribal outfit and doing dances. Keep in mind, they expect money as a tip, or you can buy some of their jewelry or art work instead of tipping.Next you travel to the lodge, which was well maintained. Upon arrival and receiving the introductory, it is lunch time. The food was fantastic and filling- typical Peruvian food. The room was comfortable, they provided water, shampoo, soap, towel, rubber boots for hiking, and a hammock in a screened in porch. It was lovely. The lodge has limited electricity, so you have to time the electricity if you need to charge batteries. The limited electricity was not a problem for us because they guides kept us busy with activities. However, even though there were at least 3 activities each day for us, there was still time to rest. The hikes in the jungle were interesting, fishing for piranhas was fun even though our guide caught all the piranhas we had for dinner. We also really enjoyed visiting a family that had several young wild life that we could hold. In early January (2014) he had a baby monkey, sloth, snake, turtles and more. Victor was our guide and he did a great job telling us the next item on our itinerary with just the right information. He did a great job over all. One thing we were not aware of was that at the end of the tour, it is expected to tip the guide as well as the staff at the lodge. But over all, those at the lodge do a fantastic job! Other fun parts of the lodge include the pet parrot, banana bunches hanging around which can be eaten as a snack, Foosball, pool, billiards, and a bar.

With the help of my excellent English-speaking guide, I did everything on the itinerary and more! My room at the lodge was spacious and clean, with all of the amenities I needed. They provided shampoo, soap, a poncho, flashlight, and rubber boots. Each room has a hammock on a screened-in deck, and all other windows have screens - perfect for falling asleep to the sounds of night critters. The food was delicious and for each meal there was a choice of chicken, fish, or beef, served with rice or potato, plantain, and vegetables. There was always a salad before the meal and dessert of fruit after the meal. Tea and coffee available all day for no charge. Beer was 6 soles, cocktails about double that, all reasonably priced. The pool was small but very clean and very refreshing. Piranha fishing was a lot of fun, and they even let me keep my biggest piranha to eat for lunch - they fried it for me at the lodge! I would suggest carrying a little bit of money or treats with you whenever you leave the lodge, just in case you end up in a village where there are little kids selling crafts or allowing you to hold their pet cayman or pet sloth. The sugar cane distillery was more interesting than I expected, and you can buy small bottles of the liquor they produce there. Bring a plug adapter if necessary - many places in Peru have plug shapes for North America and Peru, but the lodge only has Peru shapes as far as I could tell. It was a fantastic trip, would love to go back!
