I travel often and have done extensive research when I came to choose Copa De Arbol. Before even arriving to the lodge, the trip to get here was an adventure in itself- DO NOT SKIP the river ride tour to get here- its amazing and although doesn't even compare to what you're about to experience in Copa, its still worth experiencing! I can't say enough about all the tour guides either! Everyone made my trip such a memorable and enriched experience. By the way- I am a 31 year old woman who loves adventure, often travels alone, & being from Los Angeles, I'm hip and trendy but appreciate and adore the purr life...with a touch of luxury, thrilling adventure, & being one with nature. This is IT!!!! <3
When choosing a vacation, At the top of my comfort list would be: Location (NON tourist spots- hidden gems), Food- gourmet, organic preferably, & delicious cultural cuisine, Well cared for Accommodations but more so, a deep care for the environment and surrounding areas! Copa was a combination of all of these factors and tun some! I love the seclusion factor of this location as well as the private and isolated feel as if you were staying in a resort all of your own. The staff is more than accommodating and helpful whether you are a solo travel (as I usually am) or traveling with a significant other or friends etc... The food was absolutely superb and all my special requests were honored including a candlelight dinner upstairs in a private loft in the main dining room for myself & my boyfriend at the time! ;) It was amazing while it lasted! LOL! They even had a masseuse come to the resort to give us massages- I chose to have mine on the beach. There is a nearby town we checked out but truthfully there is no need to leave the resort unless it is to explore the nearby islands snorkeling, sunset cruise, or hiking in the rainforest.
I spend my days hiking in the forest with the most knowledgable tour guides, SUP along the coast, laying on the beach tanning, & reading a book on my private hammock. If you are looking for the hustle and bustle of a busy town or city or touristy activities, this place is not for you. This is a complete zen luxury eco lodge, romantic, enlightening, & calming vacation far enough away from civilization, but with a lil wifi & hot water showers! Absolutely beautiful and lovely stay!
I have yet to find a place like this in the Amazon which is my next stop but I will keep traveling and researching till I find something close. I am dying to come back to Copa de Arbol! :)
