An amazing hotel with exceptional views, wildlife, food and knowledgable guides - it was incredible how they spotted some of the rare animals in the thick amazon jungle! Big shout out to our guide Oscar, local guide Shyan and paddle man Cleber for making our experience 1000 times what we were expecting. You have to bare in mind that you...

We highly recommend this lodge. We saw caiman, 6 kinds of monkeys,many birds, giant otters. Excellent naturalist guides. Good food. Getting there is an adventure too. Visited local village. Some of the rooms are over the water.

I believe it was 7 levels that tiered to the top with stunning views to watch for the Caimans on the lake and the monkeys with a cocktail in one hand...

Spent 4 nights here with the aim to see the wildlife. The numbers seen were disappointing and often those we saw were far away and difficult to see through the canopy. Canoe trips are the main activity. To get to the bird clay licks is a long day, wake up call 0430 back to the lodge by around 5pm. I...

I think it's plenty safe, but it's extremely remote. If you need medical attention, you might be a few hours from a hospital.

You should check with the management to find out what they recommend.

Dear Timothy.

The Kichwa Añangu Community is located within a National Park where every day they have strived to take care of the environment and that is why there is no fishing and hunting of animals. It is not possible to swim since there are variety of caimans, otters and anacondas.
