Hi Noela, Thanks for getting in touch! We have had families at the reserve with kids of varying ages starting as young as 3 years old. Each family is unique, and you know your kids and your family dynamic the best. We encourage potential visitors to take into consideration these factors: -We are the most remote lodge in Iquitos, so any emergency medical help beyond backcountry first aid is a few hours away. If you are used to backcountry camping in remote areas, this will not be a surprise, but we mention it because visitors should understand and accept this risk. -The transport days at the beginning and end of the trip are long (generally about 10-12 hours door to door, including stops for transfers, lunch, bathroom, and potential animal spotting), and it requires hours of sitting through a combination of road and water travel. -Though you'll be under the care of your guide, parents are ultimately responsible for their kids, and we do not provide babysitting services. -We do our best to provide "modern" amenities like running water for showers, sinks and flushing toilets, as well as mattress beds with linens, but our lodge is rustic, meant to provide an authentic experience of the forest with local-style construction. It's like leveling up from camping but would not be considered luxurious, e.g. no air conditioning or fans, and we are entirely off grid, so no wifi or cellular networks. We do run the generator for a couple hours at night to allow guests to charge camera batteries. That being said, kids of various ages have had a wonderful time with us, though we've noticed that they take cues based on the attitudes and behavior modeled by the parents, especially when the whole family is navigating in a new environment. Generally as long as the adults are enjoying themselves, so are the kids. Kids who are well-adjusted to international travel and/or living in developing countries seem to feel comfortable very quickly, as well as families who are willing to explore the jungle with open minds and open hearts. Thanks for your interest and we hope to see you in the jungle soon!
