This was a once in a lifetime stay in the amazon. This lodge is fantastic and I highly recommend it. My husband and I were picked up at our hotel in Manaus along with 2 other couples and were brought to the docks where we took a boat with a guide to the meeting of the waters. We stopped there to learn about the meeting of the waters before continuing on to a small fishing village. There we boarded a van and drove around 2 1/2 hours to the tupana river. We took a motorized canoe the rest of the way to our lodge. It took over 4 hrs from Manaus to our lodge but it was more than worth the travel. The lodge is in a remote area surrounded by the river and the jungle. It is small and cozy and our whole stay felt very personal. Once we arrived, we met our guide for our 3 day stay, Kennedy. He spoke english quite well and greated us at our boat. We were able to check into our rooms right away and change which was nice. The rooms are small and basic but kept clean. There is power only from 6pm-7am but it is not necessary during the day as there are plenty of activities to keep you busy. We had a room facing the river which was stunning and a hammock on our balcony. The meals are served everyone together (only 13 guests total at the lodge during our stay, and about 5 employees) in the dinning room at fixed times. Our group consisted of the us and the 2 couples picked up in Manaus. Everyday we had organized activities consisting of canoe trips to see wildlife, piranha fishing, hiking in the jungle, etc. There was also plenty of time to relax on the hammocks, nap, swim in the river or kayak in the flooded forests. I cannot say enough good things about our guide Kennedy. He was so friendly and informative. We learned a lot of things about the jungle and when we went wildife viewing he caught us a baby caimen to see as well as a bird and almost an armadillo. Very cool. There were monkeys around the lodge as well as a taipir and macaw. It was a very authentic experience. I enjoyed every moment of it. Even when we opened our curtains one morning to find a giant grasshopper the size of my hand on our window and a scorpion outside our door. It was all so very neat. The meals were delicious as well, often consisting of fresh fish caught in the river as well as rice and beans and fresh fruit. We have no complaints about our stay and would do it again in a second. We would highly recommend this lodge for your amazon stay.
