Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had a great time at the reserva, The service was amazing by the host and also all of the guides, I really like the fact that they were really kind and helpful with any question or anything I needed throughout my stay, food was amazing and the reserva has an amazing spot to view the night sky. Other than the amazing service I received the experience was great to say the least, I got to go on walks though the jungle, view and pick up any Interesting and fascinating animals, mostly bugs and frogs, of course I was always supervised and advised by the guides on how to hold the animals safely, also I got to see dolphins, monkeys, snakes, tarantulas, frogs, iguanas, all kinds of animals. We also had the opportunity to go and stay in an indigenous community for a day and learn about their agriculture and also a little bit of their tongue, we learned how to fish and get the primary colors with plants! Even painting with this pigments was really fun and we got to have a souvenir!! I really recommend this place, it’s deep in the jungle, amazing if you want to have a different experience and get lost from the city stress, of course is a cabin in the jungle so it does not have electricity or wifi, but it was a great experience nonetheless!! Lastly, did you know that by staying at tucuchira you are also helping the progress for indigenous communities on the area? I think that is a plus from the eco friendly tourism!!

WOW! We spent 4 nights at Tucuchira and it has got to be one of the coolest things we’ve ever done! Feeding monkeys, spending a night deep in the jungle, visiting an indigenous community, seeing all sorts of crazy insects, canoeing with pink river dolphins, you name it. Nothing could’ve made our stay any better than the amazing hosts and guides. Special thanks to James, Esteban, Lucho and Antonio for their great hospitality and flexibility.

It’s a place in the middle of the jungle. There is no electricity but there is no need to. You can relax and get offline from your life. The activities are easy to book with the staff when you arrive. If you want to camp a night in/at the jungle/beach is better to e-mail them in front. The food is really good, it’s Colombian not western. We enjoyed every meal. Eventhough we are vegetarian it was all delicious. When communicating by e-mail the response is fast and in English. At the eco-lodge itself it’s only Spanish speaking. Had a really great time. We stayed for 4 nights.

AMAZING way to experience the Amazon Forest, in a very rustic and rural setting. Tucuchira is run by and is a part of the Tikuna community of Santa Sofia, and the care, knowledge, and insight about the Amazon this place offers is totally unparalleled. Make sure you read their website well so you understand what you are getting into. No electricity, LOTS of bugs, lots of rain and mud (in the wet season). Also, amazing jungle sounds that change hour by hour, wild monkeys and birds, incredible biodiversity of food, medicinal, and otherwise useful plants. We opted for several different guided tours and all were excellent (canoe trip, jungle trek, indigenous community visit, monkey foundation/Tikuna museum). Our favorite was a canoe trip through the inundated forest, where the Amazon river has flooded the lowlands and created a web of canoe paths. It felt like a dream while quietly paddling through and under the thick forest, listening to the guide spot and describe so many things of interest. Plucking and eating fruits off trees, spotting sloths, birds, reptiles, and amphibians. Our second favorite was visiting the Maikuchiga Monkey Foundation (not monkey island). Here we learned about the challenges and opportunities for reducing bushmeat practices among indigenous communities, the rehabilitation and release of rescued primates, and we also got to visit with a rescued baby sloth!!! There was lots of interaction available with the monkeys, but not just for photos. It was an amazing learning experience. There was also a very well executed Tikuna museum in the same community, the guide was very informative and passionate about the history and future of his people. Tips: in the wet season, bring lots of dry socks, and only bring quick dry clothing. Everything stays damp all the time. Headlamps are essential. Some type of non-slip sandal are nice for walking around the ‘camp’. I recommend spraying your clothes pre-trip with permethrin, which will reduce (not eliminate) your DEET needs. There are lots of mosquitoes all the time, everywhere except your bed under the mosquito net. You should take malaria precautions. Finally, communicate well with the staff and practice your Spanish. It will only enrich your experience. Bottom line is if you like the idea of camping in the Amazon forest with friends from a local community -but with a bed out of the rain and three meals a day prepared for you-this is the place. It will be an unforgettable trip of a lifetime.

We had an amazing experience here. The lodge itself is very comfortable, we stayed in the double room which was large and airy. The cold shower is powerful and very welcome after a hot day in the jungle. The food prepared is delicious. What really makes this place however is the people. Anna and James are great hosts, Anna organised lots of fantastic tours for us in the jungle, including camping which we were apprehensive about due to heat and bugs but actually loved, it was an incredible and unique experience. The tours would not be the same without the attentive and highly knowledgeable local guides. Ishmael and Antonio showed us so much about the jungle, and were very patient with our poor Spanish, they worked hard to ensure that we understood what they were telling us. We loved learning about the jungle and about Ticuna culture through them. Finally, no review would be complete without mention of the wonderful dogs at the lodge, Maya and Tobi! Overall cannot reccommend this place enough, it is an immersive experience in the jungle and we learned so much through its people and through the wide variety of tours available.

I was beyond blessed to have spent a few days at the Reserva Tucuchira. Anna, James, and the Reserva Staff cared for me with kindness, attentiveness, and joy since the moment I arrived. It was an unforgettable privilege to learn from the native guides – Ishmael, Juan, Lucho, and the team – who humbly serve meals, clean, teach, and share their wisdom. I’ll never forget their constant joy and the smiles on their faces, their love and respect for the jungle, knowledge of the plants and animals, and graciousness to welcome foreigners into their unique and beautiful culture. Anna and the team did a remarkable job to plan, organize, and coordinate an unforgettable experience. At the end of my stay, I was heartbroken to leave and feel that part of my heart is still in the jungle with them. There is something remarkable about the cross-cultural experience, being immersed in the jungle, and connecting with the native guides and native community that can’t be put into words. In just a few days I felt like I made new friends and was welcomed home by family. If you are up for a unique adventure in the jungle and are willing to step a little outside your comfort zone, I know you will be welcomed with open arms and enjoy an incredible experience. Their work changes lives, helps people connect with the wonder of God’s creation, and helps us appreciate and want to preserve the environment.

The hostal is in a nice location and the walk there very enjoyable - over a long bridge between trees, through the village which is lovely, and finally disappearing into the jungle to reach the house. The team there are very friendly and the food, fantastic. A stay here is highly recommended.

Booked: 5 nights / 6 days trip - Oct/Nov (dry season) OVERALL: highly recommended. Location is awesome, team is fantastic and you’ll be very well taken care of. If you want a unique visit of the Amazon with a memorable experience, away from the bus/boat of tourists, this is the place to be! (+) GOOD • 💬Communication: Anna was always available for any questions I may have. She already gained my trust prior getting there. • 🗓️Trip: With Anna’s help I was able to review and make amendments to craft a unique plan for me. So there was no surprise when I arrived. This was truly awesome and for me alone! • 💰Price: more than fair. I did my ground work and they are the best in the area. I thought that prior going, now I am 150% certain about it. The quality of the tour, the attention, the security make this package truly complete.
• Caring: the full team always ensured I had the best stay with them. I felt part of the family. I was lucky to be the only one I might have get even more attention than usual. • 🏡 Reserva: it’s a nice piece of paradise with everything you need. Food is good and generous, place is clean and tidy and you have everything you could ask for. Bonus point: next door to the jungle and perfect spot to watch the stars ;) • 🦸‍♂️Reserva Guide: I had the pleasure to be with Lucho aka El Dueño (The Boss). Trustful, honest, secure, hard working, happy, fun. He is awesome! he knows his way around so that you don’t spend the rest of your life in the jungle, can help you understand the fauna and flora and always here for you. ——— NOTE ——— • 🏨Basic Settings: this is not a **** Hotel. It has no wifi, no electricity, nor hot water. It’d not be for everyone. Although if needed wifi/electricity, ask James & Anna they always have a solution :) • 🇪🇸Spanish: if you don’t speak a bit Spanish things will get a bit trickier but that’s also part of the adventure. As not everyone in that area is used to having foreigners. e.g. external Guide might not wait you at the boat or check the time when you need to go back to take your board, boat driver might not remember where to drop you off, etc. Some basics would go a long way. • 🐍Animals: don’t expect to see Jaguars, Anaconda coming out just to greet you. Animals are wild and will run away as soon as they hear/smell a threat. Unless you decide to stay put for a few hours you will most likely not see the emblematic animals. I did see caiman, dolphins, monkeys, night monkeys, tarantula and more :)

As a couple we spent 4 days in La Reserva and out of fantastic three weeks in Colombia this was definitely the most memorable and exciting adventure. James and the other guides are super friendly, take great care of their guests and create the perfect circumstances for a authentic rain forest experience. Next to the various activities, including discovering the Amazon forest at day- and night-time, watching pink dolphins in the Amazon river or learning the basics of the agriculture, the most important experience is the familiarization with the indigenous culture. Speaking and living with people who have their homes in the middle of the jungle was one of the most powerful and valuable travel experiences so far. People are always lovely and happy to provide you not only with delicious home-made dishes, but also with interesting stories about their culture and their daily life. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone with an advanced level of Spanish who can live without luxury for some days and in return make a authentic Amazon experience you can tell your kids about.

This reserve in the middle of the jungle is a very peaceful place in the nature, to start a multitude of activities like walking on day or night in the jungle, boating to see the dolfins, visiting the communities, etc. The local guides from the indigenous communities are very friendly and really want that we have the best stay at this place. They share all their knowledge about the jungle and their way of life, cook delicious meals. It was in unforgettable stay in the Amazona
