This is a great jungle lodge, with a friendly staff, good food, a great location on the rio napo, awesome cabins etc..
Stayed here for 3 nights, one day particpated in the activites run by the lodge, one day paid extra to go river rafting. The lodge activites are included in your price, but we decided to skip a day of the set activities to go river rafting. This was an excellent decision.
The lodge is located near Tena, making it somewhat easier to get to. At first I thought I wanted to have a true jungle experience, but this is plenty close enough. It still is a bit of a trek. I would recommend a private car if you can afford it.
One note- you wont see ton of wildlife, you really need to go deep into the jungle for that. This is the same for most of the jungle lodges on the rio napo. There is plenty of crazy looking insects, a jungle feel, and peace and quiet though. Just dont expect monkeys hanging from the trees.
The Good: Value, Food, Staff, Location, Cabins rock, Lanterns, River rafting near Tena
The Ok: No sterotypical wildlife
Bottom Line: A great choice if leaving from Quito, also great for a larger group.
