    We stayed for 3 nights/4 days and it was an incredible experience. The first hike was very intense (nearly 10 miles), but the sights, sounds, and info provided by our guide (Rony) made it an experience we will never forget. I have read complaints about no hot water for the showers.. Trust me, the last thing in the world you want after being in the rainforest all day is hot shower. The cold water is a HUGE relief. We were treated like family, and it was a great experience.

    Room Tip: You hear everything due to being in the rainforest. If you have trouble with noise at night (both from animals and snoring), bring earplugs.

    We stayed here for the 3 night/4 day package, organised via Exodus as the 'Amazon Extension'. We enjoyed the location, next to the river, with Jungle all around - amazing bird life and dawn chorus. We did the night walk, boat trip to the Macaw clay lick, caiman spotting at night, and walk to the Lake. Lovely guide, Ronnie.

    Be prepared for the basic nature of the accommodation - which works perfectly considering the location - this is not a criticism. The rooms are clean and functional - firm beds with mosquito nets, tiled bathrooms, cold water showers (which felt amazing after one of the hottest, sweatiest walks of my life!) candles for lighting and thatched roofs. We had a block to ourselves so we were not affected by noise from adjoining rooms.

    The food was good - lots of rice, potatoes and salad. Plentiful fruit juices. We also managed to stay awake long enough on 2 evenings to sample the cocktails - lovely! Also thanks to Annie, the owner - my husband was unwell one day and didn't feel up to one of the meals - a fresh & simple noodle soup was made especially for him, and was much appreciated.

    The days were quite busy (including a 3am alarm call for the boat trip, in the dark, to the clay lick!) so relaxation time was welcome, in the hammocks by the river.

    Bring plenty of insect repellent, refillable water containers, waterproofs, spare camera batteries, binoculars, and a book to read for down times. Wellies/gumboots for walking in the thick gloopy mud are provided.

    The lodges were very cute, as was the whole property. There were lounge chairs and hammocks to relax in. Ferns galore around. Birds chirping. The stars at night are amazing. And yes, as others said, there is no hot water. And yes, you really do feel that sting the first time you have a cold shower. The cold water can feel refreshing, though, if you shower midday. We found that the water pressure differed between different times of day and across the 2 rooms my party had- sometimes strong, and other times just a trickle. Also, do note, that there is no electricity in the room. They give you several candles. Definitely bring a flashlight, though, for indoors and for outside, too. And test it out before you go. I got a brand new one, but found out when I turned it on, it was no more than a pinprick of light. Make sure yours is more powerful. Also, the walls are thin, which could be a problem if either you or the group next door is getting up at 2 am in the morning to go see the birds.

    The food was Peruvian and very good, though the options may be limited if you have a more limited diet. I don't eat red meat, but found myself doing so, because I would be hungry otherwise.


    We had a good program. We went out on a night hike to see some insects, a day hike to see some forest plants, an excursion on the river at moonlight to spot caymans, a boat trip up to see macaws, a canoe ride around a lake to spot anacondas (we had to cross some neat jungle bridges to get there), and tried fishing for piranhas. The cooks will prepare them for you if you happen to catch any. We saw a toucan, monkey, tarantula, macaws, anacondas, pig-like things, a turkey-like thing, lots of butterflies, different bugs, and even got to hold a baby cayman. The last day, though, I felt like there wasn't much to do. We had gotten up early and had an activity to around midday, but after that there wasn't anything scheduled, so I felt like the last part of our 3rd day was not put to as good as use as it could be. I would have liked to see another activity there.

    We had a guide for just our small group of 4, which was great. He, and the other guides we interacted with, were very knowledgeable, and answered the many questions we posed. Some of the guys at the lodge could be a little forward though. I also found that to be true after we left, on other parts of my trip, so maybe it is a Peruvian thing? I don't know.

    Overall, I had a good time, and got the jungle experience I was looking for.

    We stayed here for three nights (on the Sachavacayoc/Colpa Chuncho tour) and really enjoyed ourselves. We had a great guide (Klaus), for two of us, who was extremely knowledge and enthusiastic about the wildlife and we saw lots of animals including an anaconda! It is a good mix as you had guided tours but you also get plenty of free time to laze around in the hammocks and watch the wildlife around the lodge.

    The lodge is basic but clean and comfortable. A warning that only the dining room has electricity at night and there is no hot water. The food was good but make sure you bring your own snacks and money for drinks. The staff were all friendly and helpful.

    The downside was that the rooms are in a block of four and the ceiling is netting, so you can hear everything in the other rooms (so there not a lot of privacy). On the last day, we were made to leave the Lodge early to get back to Puerto Maldondo and ended up waiting at the airport for 5 hours (and there is NOTHING to do at the airport) as we were on the last flight out. We had been told that we needed to leave early (as we asked to stay longer at the Lodge) as some people were on the early flight, which was untrue as everyone was on the same flight as us. It was a disappointing end to an otherwise awesome trip. I would recommend that you get an early flight out of Puerto Maldondo.

    It is a good Lodge to stay at to experience the Amazon if you don't mind 'rustic accommodation.'

    Stayed here for 4 days. Brilliant place to be. If you want peace and quiet away from it all then this is the place to be. Our guide (Klaus) was great, boat man (Marlon the caymon wrestler, & Wullie the barman were fantastic. Played football in the jungle against the collage about 1/2 mile up the river. Fantastic trecks through the jungle and even managed to catch a Pirhana. Would highly recomend this place to anyone. Cheers for looking after us.

    Room Tip: All rooms are bang on.
